    Through Dec. 20

    “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).

    “Anatomy of a Pond” is an apt title for an exhibition of paintings by Adelaide Murphy Tyrol. The natural world — in this case a half-acre body of water on her Plainfield property — has long been a dominant inspiration. Her exhibition, which she calls a “visual biography,” explores the inhabitants of that pond, as well as how the light transforms it. She writes, “The artwork here is an inquiry and an homage to this constantly shifting landscape, both interior and exterior.” Indeed, from the large-scale commercial backdrops she paints in New York City to her intimate illustrations of flora and fauna close to home, Tyrol captures her subjects with both exacting realism and a sense of wonder. Of her paintings on view at Montpelier’s North Branch Nature Center, she writes, “I hope they impart a sense of the magic of our world — of what we look at every day and what blinks back at us.” at North Branch Nature Center in Montpelier.

    Indian miniature painting has changed a bit since it was inscribed on palm leaves in the eighth century. Then again, the art form is still miniature, colorful and symbolic. As a child, Sonja Olson fell in love with it. That passion inspired her to augment her printmaking major in college with South Asian studies, to learn to speak Hindi, and to travel to India to study with a master painter in Varanasi. Olson spent several decades as a professional printmaker but has now returned to her early interest and is making Hindu-style painting her own. at Norman Williams Public Library in Woodstock.

    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.
