    Through June 28

    “Almost Forgotten: Exploring the Overlooked Through Line, Shape and Texture,” currently on view in the Vermont Arts Council’s Spotlight Gallery, is a particularly evocative exhibition. Burnim’s loosely representative paintings are “informed by the passage of time, and the echo of what has been, by what is revealed in the weathered surface,” as she writes on her website. Her works reflect an attraction to banal, liminal spaces in the built environment and suggest both reverence and sadness. Burtnett, a longtime photographer and land conservationist, has in recent years been shooting details that defy a viewer’s literal comprehension. He has also mixed photographic images with other mediums, but his newest, almost playfully abstract works favor ink, indigo, graphite and oil stick on paper or board. Both artists’ creations allow viewers to experience wonder and contemplate evanescence. at Spotlight Gallery in Montpelier. Barre/Montpelier (map).

    Through June 29

    Borders are much in the news these days, but Diane Sophrin has been routinely crossing them for some 15 years. That is, she has split her time between the capital cities of Vermont and Hungary. In Montpelier, she explains on her website, she works intensively but quietly; in Budapest, she participates in an active arts scene and exhibits in solo and group shows. Currently, though, Sophrin is revealing her work close to home: at Barre’s Studio Place Arts. In the modest third-floor gallery, visitors can find “Present Continuous: Commentary and Form.” If that title is enigmatic, Sophrin’s scroll-like abstractions are hardly less so. With text drawn and painted on layered, stitched paper, her pieces present a “personal visual language with which to comment, define and respond to world events and realities,” she writes. For her, she adds, “Process as subject has taken on significant importance.” It is left for viewers, perhaps, to navigate their own internal poetry. at Studio Place Arts in Barre.

    'Vermont Music Far and Wide'

    'Vermont Music Far and Wide'

    Tools

    Through July 27

    Compiled by Burlington music advocates Big Heavy World, an exhibition at the Vermont History Museum presents a lively slice of aural history. One gallery at the Montpelier facility allows visitors both to see and hear Vermont music of the recent past. Among the visible artifacts are vinyl albums pressed by Burlington Records and some 100 photographs of musicians by Matthew Thorsen that previously toured the state as “Sound Proof: Vermont Music Images 1990-2000.” If those photos capture an exceptionally fecund period in the local music scene, a new addition, an interactive audiovisual kiosk programmed by Christina Hamilton, emphasizes Thorsen’s place in it. Audio files allow us to hear the photographer, who died on New Year’s Day this year, sharing his memories of taking each of the photos. The kiosk’s soundtrack also includes recorded music from some of the bands. at Vermont History Museum in Montpelier. Barre/Montpelier (map).
