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.

Hazel Riley’s study of Art was fostered in her country of origin, Trinidad and Tobago. Vivian was drawn to oil painting as a moth to a flame from the first day she touched a painting. These two artists come together to create an exhibit of Essex county fields and wild landscapes viewed in ribbons. A fresh look at our surroundings, with a combination of rhythm and color that depicts the land we live in. Meet the artists at the opening reception, Sunday, August 4 from 2:00-4:00pm!
