One hundred and fifty years ago in Charlottetown and Québec City, the Fathers of Confederation first dreamed of a united and prosperous Canada. They worked on a visionary project—to create a lasting democracy—which today serves as a model for the world.
This exhibit expresses the celebration of the birth of our nation and presents an opportunity for the artists to showcase their art in a juried exhibit and to promote their art. PRIZES WILL BE AWARDED TO THE WORKS WHICH MOST EFFECTIVELY REFLECT THE THEME.
Entry Fee: $10.00 (non-refundable). After April 1, 2017, fee is $20.00

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 was honoured to receive the 2016 award for
 "Leadership in the Visual Arts"
 from the 
Windsor Endowment for the Arts
on Thursday, May 12, 2016
and selected Best Art Gallery in Windsor/Essex County by Tourism Windsor Essex's social media campaign.
LIVE ART winners Kaitlynn Lessard and Salma Majthoub of Sandwich Secondary High School.
