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.

UNIFIED BY DESIGN: DENNIS K. SMITH
August 29-September 22   OPEN: Thursday-Sunday  11am-5pm

  "Assemblage is an art form or medium usually created on a defined substrate that consists of three-dimensional elements projecting out of or from the substrate. Assemblage is similar to college, where the artwork is made from an assemblage of different forms and shapes, through design creating a new whole." This exhibit features some of artist Dennis K. Smith's latest works both two dimensional and three dimensional. His sculptural two-dimensional works become three dimensional through the applications textural relief. He will also exhibit works created through a cohesive collection of found and constructed objects. Both techniques create impactful and exciting paintings. Included within this exhibit Dennis will feature his first assemblage of shapes on canvas that was the inspiration that launched his Music within with series.
