The Madrigal Chorale invites artists working in all media to showcase their work in conjunction with our Spring Concert on Saturday, May 18, 2024 at Orchard Lake Community Church in Orchard Lake Village. The theme this year is “Take Me to the Water.” The Ancient Greeks identified four universal elements: earth, air, fire, and water. Throughout human existence, our connection to water is evident through its thematic pervasiveness in poetry, song, and visual art. This season, we explore water in its many forms; the way it inspires, sustains, and brings life.
The exhibit will be curated by members of the chorale, who are seeking art with a fresh and unique perspective, with excellence as the common thread. Madrigal Chorale events draw a Metro Detroit audience representing a broad spectrum of knowledge and appreciation of the arts. 30% of all proceeds from the sale of the artwork will benefit the Madrigal Chorale.
Our collaboration between the visual and performing arts has been a great success with our audiences! A good percentage of the work displayed has been purchased. We will again offer a wide range of mediums and styles.
Exhibition Location: Orchard Lake Community Church, 5171 Commerce Rd, Orchard Lake Village, MI 48324
