Who We Are
Blackbird Gallery is pleased to present a collection of works by contemporary artists of varied experience and exposure. Not limited by geography, style, genre or medium, we value the work of underrepresented artists and contributions they have made to the aesthetics of the 21st century.
Blackbird Gallery presents for viewing and purchase a collection of works by local, national, and international artists.
The works presented create an ecosystem of paintings, drawings, photography, sculpture, fiber, and decorative arts.
Blackbird Gallery creates a space that connects the artists to a global community of art appreciators and collectors.
The intent of the gallery is to open doors to artists who create visual narratives of historic, social, and transformative content in a unique and powerful way.
Detroit is a cultural hub known for its music, dance, art, and literary scene.
Although the artists represented at Blackbird Gallery reside in all parts of the world the artists from Detroit are equally represented and appreciated.There is incredible talent here in Detroit and must be experienced in order to be appreciated.
As a black-owned gallery we believe it is important to be stewards as well as promote the Black Aesthetic.
What is the Black Aesthetic?
The term “Black Aesthetic” can be traced back to the Black Arts Movement of the late 1960's and early 1970's but the function of black aesthetics transcends time and medium.
Blackbird Gallery's virtual gallery and exhibitions may be experienced through our website.
We encourage in-person visits and are available for private showings as well as public.
Blackbird Gallery is located inside the historic Fisher Building, 3011 West Grand Blvd, Detroit Michigan. Our hours are Tuesday through Saturday from 12:00 to 6:00 PM. (We are open until 8 PM during the Fisher Theater performances.)
