About Us--Botanicals History

 Ann Derrick and Brendan Burrows created and opened the gallery in 2001. It is a culmination of Ann's personal passion for antique art, her long time collection of natural history illustrations, and her background in art history and in the art business in the Detroit area.

The building which houses the gallery also created a small sensation in Glen Arbor when it was erected. It is built around three red pine trees which grow out through the roof. Designed and built by Brendan it is a beautiful space with a wonderful light and airy cottage feel
    Botanicals exterior
interior-tree The gallery began with botanical prints as the main emphasis. This theme has been extended to include
  • birds
  • butterflies
  • bugs, especially when shown against their natural habitat
  • design illustrations
  • garden plans
  • fabulous antique food prints
  • Japanese Woodblocks

All works in the gallery are original antiques, not reproductions. These pieces are rare and are becoming even more scarce over time.

  • Most pieces are sold framed so that your selection is ready to take home and enjoy.
  •  All framing is museum quality with conservation mat board and UV filtering glass so that your art will be protected for years to come.
  • Frames tend to simple and elegant designs of rich wood, mellow golds and silvers so that they are appropriate for most any decor.
  • We are happy to accommodate your taste in framing or arrange a group with matching frames
