    Through Jan. 11, 2020

    It’s increasingly common for artists to take up the cause of endangered species, and for good reason. But perhaps not many use the medium of ceramics. In an exhibition titled “the animals are innocent” at Middlebury’s Henry Sheldon Museum of Vermont History, Maryland artist, author and environmentalist Dana Simson presents ceramic boats as well as paintings featuring animals and a message. Unlike grim images of starving polar bears and plastic-entangled turtles, however, Simson’s works are gaily colorful and kind of adorable. But if her folk-art style is beguiling, her goal is serious: to show that animals are losing habitat and food resources, and suffering as a result of pollution and climate change. at Henry Sheldon Museum of Vermont History in Middlebury.

    Through Jan. 11, 2020

    As everyone knows, you really can’t start too early on your Halloween, um, celebrations — especially when real life is scaring the bejesus out of you. Middlebury’s Henry Sheldon Museum of Vermont History is totally down with this, offering not just an exhibition titled “Conjuring the Dead” but a related series of spook-minded speakers. On view are photographs and original artworks acquired by Solomon Wright Jewett (1808-94), a Vermont farmer and legislator who claimed a special superpower: curing ailments and bringing the deceased back to life. Other artifacts in the show provide context for the rise of 19th-century spiritualism. See website for schedule. at Henry Sheldon Museum of Vermont History in Middlebury. Middlebury Area (map).

    'Votes … for Women?'

    'Votes … for Women?'

    Tools

    Through Dec. 8

    Voter suppression continues to be an issue in this country, targeting people of color in particular. Against that backdrop, Middlebury College has mounted an exhibition of photos, banners and other ephemera that chronicles the American suffragist movement. Women finally won the right to vote in 1920, making next year the 100th anniversary of the campaign to ratify the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. It also promises to be a uniquely contentious election year. 2020 vision, anyone? at Johnson Memorial Building, Middlebury College in Middlebury. Middlebury Area (map).
