PRESS RELEASE: Lorraine Reynolds at Black Cap Coffee in Stowe

Vermont Artist, Lorraine Reynolds will exhibit a collection of work entitled Ghost Stories during the month of October at Black Cap Coffee, 144 Main, Stowe, VT. Ghost Stories is an exhibition of haunting assemblages made from found objects. An opening reception with the artist will be held Sunday October 2nd from 2-5pm.

Lorraine Reynolds is a revealer of ghosts. Not the kind that clank down hallways in phosphorescent sheets or the ones who haunt graveyards by night; the ghosts she deals with are the essences, the aftereffects that are left behind, in and around the objects of our daily lives.

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 together 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.

She has been actively making and showing her style of assemblage art and collage since 2005. A graduate of the Fashion Institute of Technology, she runs the Technical Design Department at Burton Snowboards. She is a mentor and coach who enjoys teaching the art of assemblage. Locally, you can find her teaching her techniques at Artists Medium in Williston, VT. Her work has been featured in Cloth Paper Scissors, Somerset Studio, Burlington Free Press, Rutland Herald and the Seven Days.
