    Through Jan. 20

    Seventy years ago, 16 young Québécois artists put forth “Le Refus global,” or “Total Refusal,” a cultural manifesto professing “an untamed need for liberation” and calling for “resplendent anarchy.” Today the document is considered a primary catalyst for Québécois social modernization. Among the signatories was Françoise Sullivan, an interdisciplinary artist whose decades of practice have spanned dance, performance art, painting and sculpture. This retrospective at the Montréal Museum of Contemporary Art familiarizes viewers with Sullivan’s oeuvre, paying homage to an artist integral to the development of Canadian culture in the 20th century. at Montréal Museum of Contemporary Art in Montréal.

    Tools

    Through Jan. 26

    BigTown Gallery in Rochester has previously shown the work of master collagist artist Varujan Boghosian; the current exhibit, titled simply “Late Work,” is his fourth solo show at the venue. The richly colored constructions and collages are visual delights, incorporating references to mythology, literature and, if you look closely, a whiff of political protest. The 92-year-old Hanover-based artist marries wit and whimsy with stunningly precise technique. An accompanying exhibition by Erick Hufschmid features 18 photographs taken in Boghosian’s studio in 2010, along with an essay by poet Charles Simic. Pictured: “Bonaparte’s March” by Boghosian. at BigTown Gallery in Rochester. Randolph/Royalton (map).

    'Mapping an Uneven Country: Bird’s Eye Views of Vermont'

    Tools

    Through March 3

    In the latter half of the 19th century, perspective paintings and the more common lithograph prints emerged as a way to depict human settlement. Though typically used to boost commercial investment in a nascent town, these as-seen-from-above images were also artistic panoramas that enabled residents to see their impact on the natural landscape — before there were airplanes and drones to help with that. Often created by itinerant “map men,” the artworks contributed to a sense of place. A current exhibit at the Shelburne Museum includes more than three dozen such drawings, paintings and prints that illustrate human-centric growth in the Green Mountain State. Writes curator Katie Wood Kirchhoff in exhibition notes, “The questions these views provoke — from ambivalence about burgeoning technologies to border relations between Vermont and Canada to changing perceptions of Vermont’s identity — are especially timely.” Map lovers in particular will enjoy trying to identify buildings and landmarks in this engaging collection.

    Through Feb. 10

    In her solo exhibit “To Another Place,” the 86-year-old abstract painter shows a whopping 50 paintings. Many of them have not appeared in public before. Mason lives and gardens in Brattleboro during the summer and spends the rest of the year in her native New York City. She grew up under the influence of her mother, Alice Trumbull Mason, who cofounded the American Abstract Artists group. And so Mason was literally born into what would become her métier: vibrant, luminous, lyrical abstractions on canvas. She studied at the Haystack Mountain School of Crafts in Maine and the Accademia di Belle Arti in Venice. While in Italy, Mason married fellow painter Wolf Kahn; in 1968, the couple purchased a farm in Brattleboro. Their part-time presence has long enhanced Vermont’s art community. “To Another Place,” on view through February 10, includes works from Mason’s Italian period and the six decades that followed. at Brattleboro Museum & Art Center in Brattleboro.
