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 the 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.
Fort Malden Guild of Arts & Crafts:
The Gibson Gallery is housed in Amherstburg’s historic (1896) railroad station. The Fort Malden Guild of Arts and Crafts (the Gallery Board), in partnership with the Ontario Trillium Foundation, have used funds earned at Art by the River to restore and maintain this beautiful Romanesque style building.
The Guild promotes appreciation of the arts and crafts in Amherstburg. The Gallery season features exhibits by local artists, photographers, stitchers as well as travelling exhibits and annual student exhibits. Holiday Art at the Gallery is our final event of the season.
Art and craft classes for adults and children are taught throughout the year and the Gallery is home to needlework, stitchery, quilting and artist guilds.
The Gallery, a registered charitable non-profit organization, is open to the public free of charge and is entirely operated and maintained by the volunteer Board and  Gallery members.
The Gibson Gallery is located in the heart of downtown historic Amherstburg. Close to all amenities and other attractions, we are located a half a block east of Sandwich Street on Richmond street.
Look for our Open flag at the road and stop in to see us!
