    2016 CATALOG | American Dreaming — Corvette, 7 Generations & Beyond

    Exhibition runs through Saturday, February 18th


    Born in the boom years following World War II, the Corvette matured into a bona fide American icon. First and foremost, automobile designers are artists.

    Automotive artwork, in large part, was never supposed to leave the studios they were designed in and were often destroyed. This scarcity makes the exhibition and catalog that much more remarkable and history.

    Our exhibition catalog contains 120+ pages of these historic and rare sketches. Catalogs are full color and will be available in a very limited quantity. All proceeds of exhibition catalog sales to benefit the arts programs at the Scarab Club.

    Purchased catalogs will be shipped domestically. International inquirers, please reach out to director@scarabclub.org.

    THE SNOWDEN EXHIBITION
    Deadline: Sunday, January 14, 2018, Midnight
    The Scarab Club invites submissions for its Snowden Exhibition (formerly known as the Silver Medal Exhibition), an unthemed exhibition which is open to all artists. The exhibition is named for the late artist and educator, Gilda Snowden. The purpose of the exhibition is to recognize the diversity and achievement of artists whose work shows creativity of concept, excellence of design and expertise of media; to display these works to regional audiences and to be an educational opportunity for students.

    Anthony P. McGlaun, Mozetich and More!

    Sunday, January 28, 2018, 4:00 pm  

                            

    Tenor Anthony P. McGlaun

    Chamber Music at the Scarab Club celebrates its 20th season with a concert atGrosse Pointe Unitarian Church on Sunday, January 28, 2018 at 4:00 p.m. with a brilliant program that includes music by American, British and Canadian composers!

    This special anniversary season features favorite performers and pieces from the previous 19 years of concerts, alongside newer works and artists making their CMSCdebuts.

    The January 28th concert showcases tenor Anthony P. McGlaun.  CMSC is thrilled to welcome back this Detroit native who has performed beautifully on CMSC concerts several times in the past. Mr. McGlaun will sing Benjamin Britten’s Canticle #1Hold On for tenor and cello by William Banfield and a world premiere of Anthony Green’s song cycle of texts by Georgia Douglas Johnson for tenor and piano quintet.

    Canadian composer Marjan Mozetich is a CMSC favorite and his Scales of Joy and Sorrow, which was written for and premiered by the Gryphon Trio in 2007, will be performed for the second time on the series. The first CMSC performance was in January 2011 and also featured pianist Jacqueline Csurgai Schmitt, violinist Velda Kelly and cellist Nadine Deleury. Arthur Foote’s Piano Quartet, Opus 23 will round out this wonderfully eclectic program. This is a gorgeous work by an American composer from the late 19th, early 20th century whose chamber music deserves many more performances.
