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.

Untamed Composition 2 : Rico Dancel
April 18- May 12
Working primarily with watercolour, Rico captures the true spirit of blooming flowers and nature in exquisite shades, with richness and elegance. Having a great Western influence as his subject matter, he gives a delicate Oriental touch which allows him to express its poetic values. By sputtering bursts of colours, Rico breathes life and energy into each and every one of the paintings in his portfolio.
