ART BY THE RIVER 2022
August 27 & 28, 10am - 5pm
Welcome to the Gibson Gallery / Fort Malden Guild of Arts & Crafts
The Gibson Gallery is located in South Western Ontario's historic town of Amherstburg.
This former Michigan Central Railroad Station, ca. 1896, has been renovated to its original Romanesque glory featuring towering ceilings, hardwood floors and bevelled glass windows. A full season of exhibits showcasing Essex County artists, travelling exhibits from Ontario museums and galleries and an Artisan Shoppe make this heritage building a vital center for the
visual arts, offering art and craft lessons, an artist guild and three needle art guilds. A railroad museum, featuring artifacts and memorabilia, is housed in the attached caboose.
The Gallery is owned and operated by the Fort Malden Guild of Arts and Crafts,a charitable organization incorporated in 1975 "to encourage and foster cultural development in the fields of fine arts and applied arts".
Admission to the Gallery is free-donations help support this heritage site.

The Gibson Gallery would like to acknowledge
April 28-May 22 AFTERGLOW-Gloria Gellner Retrospective Thursday-Sunday 11-5
for their continued support of the Gibson Gallery. We thank them for their recognition
of the importance of a non-profit public gallery and the Arts in a community.
Gloria graduated from the University of Windsor in 1975 with a BFA degree. Her passion was creating her beautiful pottery as part of "The Potters Four" in LaSalle. Later, she became sole proprietor of "Capricorn Pottery" and relocated to Kingsville. Since 1977 Gloria had shared her knowledge and love of this art with countless students, inspiring others, as well as being a well-respected artist in the Essex county community and beyond. This exhibit shows the progression from her earliest pieces to ones completed just prior to her death in March 2018.
Come celebrate her artistry with family and friends at the reception on Sunday, May 22 from 1-3pm.
