Wall Art at The Gift Shop

Our Wall Art, or 2D art, is represented by some of the best , award-winning artists in Michigan. Many also have displayed their work in Anton Art Center exhibits. Styles range from traditional to contemporary, fanciful to classical, oil, watercolor, photography, collage, acrylic, pastels, and more. Many works are framed, but we also carry prints in various styles and sizes.
Pictured are several of our walls filled with the work of our talented artists.

Whimsical and humorous art at The Gift Shop

I especially enjoy the whimsical art here at The Gift Shop. The imagination and sense of humor that each artist brings to their pieces will make you smile. Here are just a few examples of this fanciful artwork.

One of our artists creates wonderful papier mache people and animals. Very detailed, colorful, and fun!

Another makes the most imaginative dolls. This is one of her "Dragonfly Lady" series. Isn't she beautiful?

 Still another uses metal and found objects in his work.
