In a Groove: Our Newest Exhibition

Join us! This Thursday, Sept. 14 from 6-8 p.m.

Groove is the art.

And art from the heart is exactly what you’ll find at the Dresner Foundation Soul Studio’s fall exhibition.

The free event at Soul Studio – located at the Farber Center, 5586 Drake Road in West Bloomfield – will spotlight captivating pieces created by the studio’s artists, who’ve been hard at work all summer, channeling their creative vision into beautiful artwork.

From large-scale abstract paintings to dinosaur-covered 3D landscapes, the artwork on display will delight the senses and nourish the soul.

The studio is a creative haven for about 20 artists with special needs who explore a variety of mediums, honing their skills and discovering new ones. They design, create and sell their works of art in our Soul Gallery, and earn commission on the pieces they sell. Learn more about these creative souls here.

To see what their groovy artistry is all about, join us Thursday, Sept. 14 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Art will be available for purchase (some examples are featured on this page!)

Register here for In a Groove: Soul Studio Fall Exhibition.
