    Through Nov. 22

    Vermont artists Arista Alanis, Mary Brevda, Rory Jackson, Joseph Salerno and Homer Wells are featured in this show at Spruce Peak Performing Arts Center, curated by Kelly Holt. Their works respond to the physicality of mountainous landscapes, from Vermont to Patagonia, in a variety of mediums. “Mountain air has a sensory effect like none other; it is home,” Jackson writes in an artist statement. “It is the clean breath that sweeps through the lungs of the hillside.” at Spruce Peak Performing Arts Center, Stowe Mountain Resort in Stowe.

    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. Upper Valley (map).

    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.

    Through Dec. 13

    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.
