Celebrate Detroit!

Here at The Gift Shop, we have artists who create art with Detroit in mind. We will look at the work of three of those artists today...Robert Mowry, the late Constance Powell, and James Williams.

Robert Mowry takes iconic photos of many Detroit landmarks. This eye-catching print of the "Faygo" logo is just a sample of his work.

Constance Powell is no longer with us, but we still carry her wonderful drawings thanks to her daughter. Constance's mastery pen, ink, and water color are evident in her renderings of many iconic Detroit buildings, and venues. Here is one of her Detroit sports related prints.

James Williams has created prints of his oil paintings that also depict many Detroit sports venues. Here is one of his prints of Ford Field.

(Remember, the letters in parentheses after each artist's name show their code. When you see that code on work in The Gift Shop, you will know who created it.)

Whether you grew-up in Detroit and want to own a bit of nostalgia, or you are a Detroit sports fan, we have something for you at The Gift Shop.
