A full season of exhibits by local artists, arts and crafts lessons for children and adults, three needle art guilds make this 112 year old building a vital center for the visual arts. Our designated historic building is renovated to its original glory and the attached Caboose museum highlights local railroad history.
The Gibson Gallery is owned and operated by the Fort Malden Guild of Arts and Crafts, a non-profit charitable organization. Art by the River, which began in 1967 has developed into the Guild's main fundraiser. Art by the River, Essex County's oldest and largest arts & crafts show is held annually on the grounds of Fort Malden National Historic Site on the weekend before Labour Day weekend.
