Center Gallery hosts the inaugural Northern Home + Table Show Aug. 5-11 at the gallery, 6023 S. Lake St., Glen Arbor. A reception to open this group show is Aug. 5, 6-8 p.m.
Home is where the art is, and Northern Home + Table celebrates artist-made objects for the abode – from woven and sewn textiles to glass lamp finials, ceramic table settings to framed narrative paper cuttings. The exhibition features work by studio artists represented by Lake Street Studios, and invited friends. A list of exhibitors is at www.lakestreetstudiosglenarbor.com.
As part of the exhibition, exhibiting potter John Huston will conduct a raku firing on Sunday, Aug. 7, 1 p.m. on the gallery’s side yard. Raku is an ancient Japanese method of firing clay objects using natural materials — paper, dried vegetation – to fuel the fire. A raku firing is underscored by centuries of tradition and ritual, making it a full-senses experience.
