The 4731 Gallery, located at 4731 Grand River in Detroit is, in the words of Detroit Free Press writer Keri Guten Cohen, "a new kind of art gallery."

You can reach the gallery at 313.894.4731, or by emailing

Matthew Loflin Davis, a well-known Detroit-area sculptor and photographer, has received overwhelming public support for his work on Belle Isle—so much so that the Mayor’s office intervened to keep his installation there standing when the Detroit Recreation department threatened to take it down. Davis has been featured several times on WJBK Channel 2 news in Detroit, was the subject of an episode of Art Beat on WTVS Detroit, and his work has been covered by WDIV Channel 4 news, the Detroit Free Press, the Ann Arbor News, the Holland Sentinel, and other newspapers nationally. Several Detroit-area art lovers have commissioned him to do stone and metal sculptures.
