Built in 1978, the then Burlington Cultural Centre was developed as an ideal home for the many visual art and craft guilds that had been active in Burlington since the 1950s. There are six member guilds of Arts Burlington that have fully-equipped studios at the renamed Art Gallery of Burlington. The guilds include Burlington Fine Arts Association, Handweavers and Spinners , Hooking Craft , Photography , Potters, and Sculptors and Woodcarvers.

Each guild runs a varied program to promote a greater understanding of their specific art form and to involve people as creators. The guilds represent an important point of access to the Gallery as a whole. Typical guild participants will enter as a beginner and through classes, critiques discussion and exhibition they develop themselves to a serious amateur or professional level.
