    Sat., Nov. 23, 7 p.m.

    The region’s emergency first responders deserve a round of applause for their work assisting Vermonters. The Spruce Peak Performing Arts Center celebrates first responders’ contributions to local communities with an evening of rollicking live music. The Emergency First Responders Soul & Blues Bash features Dave Keller’s Soul Revue, a high-energy ensemble fronted by Montpelier guitarist Keller (pictured). Performing with a full band, including singers Pam McCann and April Caspari along with the Mo’ Sax Horns, the award-winning musician serves up songs from his 2018 album Every Soul’s a Star. John Fusco and the X-Road Riders, with Vermont axe man Seth Yacovone, round out the bill. at Spruce Peak Performing Arts Center, Stowe Mountain Resort in Stowe. Stowe/Smuggs (map). $18-28.

    The Brooklyn-based artist calls the contents of her exhibit “paintings and comics.” And so they are. But that doesn’t really explain her unique combination of cartoon-y line drawing, acrylic paint and fabric-inspired backgrounds (specifically, William Morris textiles). With speech bubble overlays, the works are meme-ready. In “Say Nice Things to Me,” currently at Scavenger Gallery in White River Junction, Musgrove further explains in an artist statement that she explores memoir through various modes. Visitors to the petite jewelry shop and gallery can ponder paintings that the artist says dissect an affair “for the purpose of posterity, insight and reckoning.” at Scavenger Gallery in White River Junction.

    Ever wonder what’s happened to all those old telephone booths? Well, Studio Place Arts in Barre has repurposed one of them — sans phone — as a very tiny art venue. Named the “Quick Change Gallery” (presumably a reference to Clark Kent/Superman’s speedy switcheroo?), it’s clearly suitable for exhibitions of small works. Currently, that would be a dozen pencil drawings by Mark Heitzman. The central Vermont cardiologist and artist is noted for his minimalist but meticulous works; his phone booth show, titled simply “Graphite,” is no exception. at Studio Place Arts in Barre.

    It is a sad fact of human evolution that there are so many reasons to express resistance to one another. University of Vermont students in a 2018 art history class chose the timely topic, curating an exhibition at the Fleming Museum of Art with artworks and objects primarily drawn from the museum’s permanent collection. The show features the work “of historical and contemporary artists who have countered adversity and hardship with empowerment and expression,” explains exhibition text. The subjects range from racial violence to political suppression to the underrepresentation of women in the art world. at Fleming Museum of Art, University of Vermont in Burlington (map). Free with museum admission.

    “Breathe the Wind” at White River Gallery in South Royalton features the Norwich artist’s small gouache works on paper as well as larger oil paintings on panel and canvas. Perhaps it is Emlen’s background in graphic design that informs her cogent compositions, as well as the patchwork-like rearrangements of loosely rendered landscapes in some of her paintings. The latter are disconcerting, as if a portal to another world had opened up before our very eyes. Though taking her lead from observed reality, Emlen seems to suggest the not-seen quality of the natural world, and it is alluring. at White River Gallery in South Royalton. Randolph/Royalton (map).
