Simone DeSousa Gallery

444 W. Willis, #112
Detroit MI 48201

Opening receptions are typically on Saturdays from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. Gallery hours are Wednesdays through Saturdays from 11:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. For a time there were gallery hours on Sundays, from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. and later on to just 3:00 p.m., but now it seems there are no Sunday gallery hours at all anymore. One can always ask for an appointment.

This is a mildly avant-garde gallery with flawless presentation, occasionally printing glossy books for the exhibitions. Owned and directed by Simone DeSousa. This gallery was originally known as Re:View Contemporary.

The gallery is actually subdivided in two, and sometimes Gallery 1 and Gallery 2 showed different artists. However, on July 16, 2016, Gallery 2 became the Edition gift shop, which has the same hours as the gallery. Nonetheless, Edition still does somewhat function as Gallery 2. And, starting May 2018, there has been a roughly monthly "Edition highlight."

I believe this listing is complete prior to 2020 and incomplete from 2020 to the present.

On November 14, 2015, the gallery sent out an e-mail announcing the addition of Sunday gallery hours from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., to start on November 15. After a short break for the first three months of 2018, Sunday gallery hours were slated to resumed on April 8, 2018, but from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., according to an April 4, 2018 e-mail.
