Check Out The Simone DeSousa Gallery

hanging art at home

From prints to sculptures, the Simone DeSousa Gallery offers unique works for your home. The gallery represents both local and international emerging and mid-career artists. You can explore the extensive collection from home, and your order will arrive at your door. The artists you can discover from our Fairlane Woods apartments include:

Chris Mayse 

Chris Mayse earned a B.A. in Studio Art in 2008. After graduation, he sculpted figures for Hasbro and Mattel, including the Star Wars and DC Universe toy lines. His work is found in private collections in the United States and Europe. In Chris’s new pieces, he explores the “intersection of contemporary digital design language and the utilitarian.” He reimagines traditional pottery, and his creations can enhance any room of your home.

Alissa Lamarre 

A metalsmith, Alissa Lamarre focuses on jewelry and small objects. She became interested in art at a young age as she worked alongside her family of creatives. Today, Alissa, like many artists near Dearborn, exhibits both nationally and internationally. Her work includes drawings on metal, and she creates using graphite, ink, and wax crayons. The gallery’s online shop also features her one-of-a-kind earrings. 

Adam Shirley

Working primarily with steel, Adam Shirley explores “form and volume in model-sized flat pieces.” He earned an MFA in Metalsmithing in 2010. Five years later, Adam received the Louis Comfort Tiffany Biennial Award. He takes inspiration from a famous artist, and his work appears both familiar and foreign. When Adam’s not in his studio, you’ll likely find him teaching at the College for Creative Studies in Detroit.  

After virtually exploring the Simone DeSousa Gallery, venture outdoors and discover nature. You can hike or bike along scenic trails and enjoy a workout ranging from easy to challenging.
