Father's Day gifts at The Gift Shop

Father's Day is coming, and here at The Gift Shop you will find something to delight every man in your life. Do they enjoy life on the water, a love of all-things automotive or sports related, or have a nostalgic streak? With those interests in mind let's look at the work of artists Robert Mowry, Michael Bowman, and Icon Tiles.

Robert Mowry (MOW) has a talent for capturing  photographic images of Detroit and Michigan.

This nostalgic matted 11"x14" photo by Robert Mowry (MOW) is titled "Made in Detroit"

"Sunrise Grand Traverse Bay" by Robert Mowry (MOW). It is an 11"x14" matted photo.

Another 11"x14" matted photo from Robert Mowry (MOW) titled "Harbor Springs Morning".
