The Gallery Shop

The Gallery Shop is a bright, vibrant space that represents the wide-ranging creative talent in our region. With the majority of our artisans from Barrie, the County of Simcoe or the surrounding area, our shop has a strong ‘local’ flavour and is a destination for those seeking high quality, handmade gifts. We carry a diverse range of home textiles, hand thrown ceramics, beautiful Canadian-made jewellery and more!
Summer at the MacLaren Gallery Shop

With the arrival of summer, there are many reasons to visit the Gallery Shop. From showers, anniversaries and birthdays to summer weddings and visits to the cottage, we have unique gift items that are sure to leave a lasting impression on the special people in your life.

Make a difference in your community by shopping with us and supporting the many artisans we represent, both emerging and established. These talented and hardworking folks create one-of-a-kind pieces that demonstrate a high level of quality and creative artistry.  In addition to supporting local artists, all sales made in the Gallery Shop directly support the MacLaren's programming and ensure that arts and culture in Barrie continue to thrive.

Say it with a MacLaren Gift Card

With over 100 different Canadian artists represented in the Gallery Shop, we have items to suit every taste and budget. However, if you’re still not sure what to buy, a MacLaren Art Centre gift card is always a great option! Gift cards can be used, not only in the Gallery Shop, but also on arts classes, framing and in the Gallery Café.
