Artist Residencies

In November 2021, the Canadian Clay & Glass Gallery launched an artist residency program. This ongoing series of residencies will support Canadian artists working in clay, glass, and enamel. Artists work on-site at the gallery creating new pieces, researching their practice, and supporting gallery programs. The gallery looks forward to welcoming new artists and building connections through this program.
