    'From Granite to Gold'

    'From Granite to Gold'

    Tools

    Through Oct. 17

    Jonah Mathison-Regan, a student at the University of Vermont, had a most unusual summer internship: creating an exhibition for the Hardwick Historical Society about Burdean Sebert. You might be thinking, Who? Sebert (1900-95) was something of a local celebrity back in the day. The daughter of a local granite cutter, she left home to attend a conservatory in Boston and then perform in a touring entertainment company; she went on to earn an Emmy for her role on a public access television show in Ohio, and eventually returned to Vermont to teach drama and public speaking. “I felt that [Sebert’s] story spoke to the idea that even people from modest origins can go on to do great things,” Mathison-Regan writes, “while at the same time showing the importance of continuing to stay connected to one’s home community.” Now a junior in UVM’s Honors College, he is pursuing a self-designed major combining literature, philosophy and political history. at Hardwick Historical Society in Hardwick.

    'Exposed!'

    'Exposed!'

    Tools

    Through Oct. 19

    Like seemingly every Vermont town this summer, Stowe is under construction. That work has precluded the 28th annual outdoor sculpture exhibit “Exposed.” from siting works downtown and along the bike path, as in previous years. Helen Day Art Center has scaled back, hosting just two sculptors on the gallery’s grounds, but that doesn’t mean the exhibition is minuscule. David Stromeyer, who lives in Vermont and Austin, and Brooklyn-based Tom Fruin both think big. Stromeyer and his wife established Cold Hollow Sculpture Park in Enosburg Falls in 2014, siting numerous large-scale, abstract metal works on its 200 acres. Fruin uses steel and Plexiglas to create outsize sculptures that reference buildings. As always, self-guided cellphone audio tours of the works enhance visitors’ appreciation. at Helen Day Art Center in Stowe. Stowe/Smuggs (map).
