Center Gallery hosts the Home + Table Show Aug. 4-10 at the gallery, 6023 S. Lake St., Glen Arbor. A reception to open this group show is Aug. 4, 6-8 p.m.
Home is where the art is, and Home + Table celebrates artist-made objects for the abode – from artisan cutting board, hand built ceramic tableware, hand-pulled woodblock and fish prints, to forged barbecue and picnic implements, and paper ornaments. 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 show, exhibiting potter John Huston will conduct a raku firing on Sunday, Aug. 6, 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. For more information, please call Center Gallery, 231/334-3179.
