The Gallery Shop

Find unique gifts for any occasion at the Gallery Shop!
Longevity isn’t something you normally think about when purchasing a gift. Does it fit my budget? Will they like it? Will they use it? These are typical questions when shopping for someone else. But we’d like you to consider the longevity of the item you are buying – how well is the item made and what is its legacy.

For many people, handmade is synonymous with quality. Artisan-crafted objects often feature natural materials, such as clay and wood, they are touched by one set or a limited number of hands during production and they are often made in small batches or as one-of-a-kinds. All of these factors go in to the quality assurance of handmade gifts.

At the Gallery Shop, we like to think of all of our pieces as storytellers. The story of each object begins before it arrives in our shop; it has been dreamt about, drawn, scrutinized and fussed over. We have the honour of sharing the stories of all of our fabulous artists. And that’s why, with every purchase made here, customers receive an artist information card to pass on to the person who is receiving the item.

Whether it’s a holiday present, hostess gift or any other offering, we invite you to check out all of the wonderful artists represented in the Gallery Shop. You’ll leave with a handmade treasure and a story to tell.

All sales made in the Gallery Shop directly support the MacLaren's programming and artistic practices within the region.
