Belle Isle at The Gift Shop

Most of us have good memories of times spent on Belle Isle. It is one of Detroit's most enchanting places. Some of our artists have captured the beauty of Belle Isle in photos and paintings. Those artists include: Roselyn Rhodes, Robert Mowry, and Winnie Chrzanowski.

Roselyn Rhodes has created a breezy summer feel with her Giclee print entitled "Little Red Bridge on Belle Isle".

Roselyn also offers this beautiful painting of one of the reflective pools on Belle Isle entitled "Willows on the Pond".

Robert Mowry has photographed many iconic scenes of Detroit. Here is his photo of the Scripps Whitcomb Conservatory on Belle Isle.

Winnie Chrzanowski is one of our favorite photographers. Here is her photo of a placid scene on Belle Isle.

Visit us soon, and take home your own memory of Belle Isle created by one of these talented artists.
