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.
April 19-May 13     Thursday-Sunday 11am-5pm
Threadworks’ mandate is to mount, every three years, a juried exhibition of exceptional creative needlework stitched by artists from across Canada. 
The show opens travels to a number of museums and galleries across Ontario during the next two years. The Gibson gallery is proud to present 
the theme for 2016 - FLASHBACK. What does that word bring to your imagination? Just how far back does it take you? Visit the gallery 
and see how the different fabric artists have interpreted it.
