Established in 1984 in downtown London, Michael Gibson Gallery has earned a nation-wide reputation specializing in contemporary Canadian and international art. Housed in one of the finest exhibition spaces in Canada, the gallery offers superior service to its collectors. Through ten annual exhibitions, in-depth catalogues, and lively public events, we aim to promote the work of the best emerging and established regional and national artists in order to enrich the cultural life of our clientele. We also buy and sell works by key contemporary and historical artists and advise private and corporate collectors as well as artists’ estates.
In 1997 the gallery moved to 157 Carling Street, a historic building owned by a prominent London family since 1926, which Michael Gibson was honoured to purchase in 2006. Designed by John Nicholson of Nicholson Sheffield Architects, the Gallery won the National Post Design Exchange silver award for Renovations under $100k. In summer 2009 we opened The Woodman Room, named in honour of Drs. Ross and Marion Woodman. This downstairs space, truly unique to London, is designed to hold public events -- lectures, film screenings, seminars -- to foster the lively cultural exchange and exploration of a range of ideas.
The gallery has been a member of the Art Dealers Association of Canada (ADAC) since 1998. Michael Gibson served on ADAC’s board of directors for nine years and was President of the Board from 2007-09. Please spend some time exploring our website, which offers a digital emulation of our unique gallery space. We hope to see you in person at 157 Carling Street, London, Ontario, Canada.
