The 2024 season is now underway at the Gibson Gallery.

 

The members exhibit, with this year’s theme being “Expressions,” began last Thursday and runs through March 17, where it will close with a reception from 2-4 p.m. The exhibit features approximately 45 pieces of art in a variety of mediums created by the Gibson Gallery members.

 

“We have 42 different members represented,” said office administrator Tracy Atkinson.

Oils, acrylics, ink, embroidery, crocheting, water colours, sculptures and more are featured as part of the opening exhibit of the season.

 

“We have a big mix,” said Atkinson. “Two pieces sold our very first day. Most of the items are up for sale but not all of them.”

 

Atkinson said the members exhibit is usually the first exhibit of the year at the Gibson Gallery. The call is put out to the members and they respond with artwork, with Atkinson adding it also helps the gallery add and renew memberships.

 

“You do have to be a member to put a piece in (to the show),” said Atkinson.

 

The members exhibit generally gets good feedback, she added, and there is something for the public to enjoy.

 

“This one has something for everybody,” said Atkinson. “It’s nice for the members to be able to showcase their talents.”

 

The majority of members in the Gibson Gallery are from Amherstburg, but Atkinson noted they have members come in from around the region as well including from Kingsville and Windsor.

 

“It’s the quaintness of the gallery,” she said. “They like how quaint and quiet the gallery is and their ability to work in this building.”

 

The Gibson Gallery is located at 140 Richmond St. and is open Thursday-Sunday from 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Admission is free but donations are appreciated.
