Coinciding with Third Thursday, the Lyndon House will host a reception for a new exhibition in the Lounge Gallery, a space dedicated to highlighting emerging artists. Burke was the recipient of the LHAC Choice Award during the recent 42nd Juried Exhibition, earning her an opportunity to present a solo show. With a background in fabric design, her current collection of collages weave together scraps of paper, expressive drawings and flourishes of paint to create layered, abstracted compositions. Her pieces are inspired by old candid snapshots taken by her mother, and represent a fascination with childhood memories, imagination and nostalgia. Burke’s exhibition will remain on view through Aug. 24.
The reception celebrates "Picturing the Black Fantastic," "Present & Accounted For," "John Cleaveland's WWI Landscapes" and "So It Goes: Works by Lisa Freeman." See Art Notes on p. 12.
