Vintage Inspired Lifestyle Marketplace on Flynn Avenue in Burlington is pleased to announce the grand opening of their new antique marketplace on Friday, November 18th. Vintage Inspired, a vibrant new marketplace for antique dealers, artists and craftspeople, is located at 180 Flynn Avenue, and will be open Tuesday – Saturday from 10am to 5pm, and Sunday from 12pm to 4pm (closed Mondays).
To kick off the market grand opening, an art exhibition featuring the work of Vermont artists Lorraine Reynolds and Lisa Lillibridge will open at Vintage Inspired for First Friday Art Walk, Friday December 2nd, with a reception from 5-8pm. The work will be on view during regular business hours through December 31st.
Artist Lorraine Reynolds’ mixed media assemblages are a collection of “glimmering prizes.” Assembled in old boxes, frames and books, found objects find unity and a common voice in her hands. Her assemblages not only speak to the sadness of lost and forgotten things but through Lorraine’s creative touch find life again. Lorraine’s gift is in sifting through these disparate objects, finding the compatible bits and pieces of others’ lives and weaving their faint and ancient energies together until they sing in one voice. Her assemblages not only speak to the sadness of these lost and forgotten things, but they remind us that their owners have been lost and forgotten as well. Over the past several years, Lorraine Reynolds has displayed her work in various group shows throughout the state of Vermont. She recently had her first solo show in the fall of 2011. Lorraine is a graduate of the Fashion Institute of Technology and technical designer for Burton Snowboards. For more information, visit Lorraine’s website at www.glimmeringprize.com
