Located in the heart of Birmingham, MI, the Robert Kidd Gallery showcases artworks from artists larger than life.
A New chapter
Robert Kidd Gallery was founded in 1976 By Robert Louis Kidd and Ray Frost Fleming, graduates of the Cranbrook Academy of Art. Owed to the curatorial vigor of Kidd and Fleming, the Robert Kidd Gallery achieved early notoriety through the caliber and consistency of its exhibitions, and a growing stable of prestigious artists with whom the gallery became affiliated. In the early 1980s, the gallery's exhibition and archive spaces were expanded by renowned architect Irving Tobocman, and fitted with custom gallery interiors by Kidd. The elegant modern designs conceived and constructed at the time of this collaboration remain in the two-level gallery on Townsend Street in downtown Birmingham, Michigan to this day.

Robert Kidd Gallery is proud to present, " SKULLS, INC", a collection of original paintings by Elena Arnaoutova.
Most known for her skull portraits that are set within the tradition of Vanitas. She defines her artwork as, “a way to give experience meaning in a tangible form."
Her skulls remind us of what strangeness exists just beneath the armour of flesh, her paintings are an exploration into the mysteries and sacredness of life and its presentation through art”.
