Amherstburg Art Crawl

Cost: Free
Event Website

Come join us for our first annual Amherstburg Art Crawl! This is a FREE event that kicks off at the Art Alley behind River Bookshop at 1pm. The Art Crawl is a 1km accessible tour through our beautiful town featuring displayed art, a meet-and-greet with Art Windsor-Essex’s Nadja and many other gallery artists, as well as live music at Musicland Amherstburg and Gibson Gallery.

Our Art Crawl is a fully accessible 1 km walking tour through downtown Amherstburg. It starts at the ‘Art Alley’ behind the River Bookshop, where you will see beautiful murals from DERKZ and David Creed. You will also meet Indigenous artist Naomi Peters, who will help us acknowledge that the land on which we gather, live, and raise our families is the traditional territory of the Three Fires Confederacy of First Nations, and of the Huron-Wendat and Wyandot Peoples. She will do this by unveiling two murals that recognize Shawnee Chief Tecumseh.

The crawl will then move west down Murray Street … not only will you see the wonderful heritage restoration that is going on there, but you will meet the first of many Gibson Gallery artists displaying their work en route.

Next up is Flow Cafe & Bikes on Dalhousie where you will meet Art Windsor-Essex’s Nadja who has been involved in the creation of the eight ‘Look Again! Outside: Amherstburg’ reproductions that are installed around town. Nadja will guide you on a walk that weaves through the beautiful King’s Navy Yard Park. Along the way, she will describe six of those reproductions. You will also meet many more gallery artists and members of the Amherstburg Fort Malden Horticultural Society, an active volunteer organization that does many things to help make the town more beautiful.

Then it’s on to Richmond Street and a stop at Musicland, where owner Bethany D’Alimonte will perform three Beatles songs from her open stage.

The walk continues east on Richmond, passing a reproduction by Group of Seven artist Tom Thomson and a huge Boblo boat mural by DERKZ.

Less than three short blocks further east we end the crawl at the Gibson Gallery, housed in the former 1896 Michigan Central Railroad Station, also featured in Heritage Buildings of Amherstburg. There you will be greeted by all the artists you’ve met on the walk, hear live music, and enjoy free refreshments.

After that, the first annual Amherstburg Art Crawl will be in the books, and we will be one step closer to our long-term Arts Festival dream.

We hope to see you there!

The event starts a 1pm and the closing reception will be finished just after 4pm. Attendance is free. No reservations are required. It will happen rain or shine. If you have questions, please contact the Gibson Gallery or River Bookshop.
