Belle Isle Art Gallery


Photography accurately captures the emotion of what visually thrills us in life.
- Gene Chamberlain

On your next trip to Belle Isle the first building that will come into view is the Historic Detroit Boathouse. It was built in 1902, and features an unsurpassed view of Detroitís stunning skyline. To help restore this Elegant landmark to its original splendor we have opened an art gallery and are fortunate to be partnering with Michiganís premier architectural photographer, Gene Chamberlain.

Prepare to see Detroit from from Geneís unrivaled perspective. You will see skyscrapers that absolutely soar as well as appreciate the subtle elegance of historical buildings, captured as their architects intended. An image of a powerful freighter as it steams up the Rouge River with itís searchlight piercing the night sky, will push the limits of what you think is fine art.

You will appreciate the raw power of Lake Superior seas crashing on the rocks of Copper Harbor and wonít be surprised to find out this image is hanging in the Governors official residence in Lansing along with many more.

Gene also offers tutorials on the art of composition. Sessions are done in an art gallery setting on composing the perfect image. An excellent gift for the budding or advanced artist.

Gene can be contacted at 586-601-4289 for an appointment.
