If you are considering attending more than one workshop, it is recommended you become a member to receive the discounted rate.

If workshops aren’t really your thing, you can also check out Glenhyrst’s current exhibition: Flora & Fauna. This annual permanent collection exhibition is in collaboration with Brantford Potters’ Guild, Glenhyrst’s Curator & Head of Collections, Matthew Ryan Smith, and Permanent Collection Chair, David Leng. This exhibition pairs works from the Gallery’s collection of more than 600 artworks with selected pottery by Guild members. Based on the theme of flora and fauna, the exhibition creates a meaningful conversation between the Glenhyrst’s historical collection and new pottery. The exhibition runs until September 27, 2020. 

Upcoming exhibitions at Glenhyrst Art Gallery of Brant include: Paul Kneale (October 3 – November 29, 2020) and Vibrant Palette Student Exhibition (December 4 – January 1, 2021).
