There’ll be “Postcards From The Lake,” an exhibition of work celebrating summer at the cottage by painter Peggy Hawley and twig furniture maker Bill Perkins July 25-31, Center Gallery, 6023 S. Lake St., Glen Arbor. A reception opens the show July 25, 6 p.m.

Hawley, a Frankfort resident, has created a series of narrative paintings that are vignettes from an imagined summer vacation at Lake Michigan. Her oil paintings express a dream-like quality of remembrance, summer light and old cottages with rowboats on the shore. Postcards with quick jottings accompany each painting, and tell a short story about each of the works.

Perkins was first introduced to the idea of making furniture from branches, twigs and bark when he was a child visiting an “up-north cottage.” The Cedar resident’s work evokes the tradition of Adirondack camp furniture and the Arts and Crafts Movement aesthetic.
