    'Crash to Creativity: The New Deal in Vermont'

    'Crash to Creativity: The New Deal in Vermont'

    Tools

    Through Nov. 4

    “Depression? What Depression?” So went the joke during the Great Depression in Vermont, a place already known for ruggedness and extreme New England thrift. This new exhibition at the Bennington Museum sheds light on how creativity flourished from 1934 to 1944 in the Green Mountain State, as government-funded New Deal initiatives provided work across fields, from artists and architects to construction workers. After Social Security was established in 1935, it was a Vermonter — Ida May Fuller of Ludlow — who received check 00-000-001 for $22.54. While not a depiction of Fuller herself, “Social Security” by Francis Colburn (pictured) imagines the elderly recipient of these much-needed benefits. at Bennington Museum in Bennington.

    'Books: Matter And Magic'

    Tools

    Through Oct. 8

    Anyone familiar with Roald Dahl’s Matilda knows that books and magic are closely linked. This new exhibition at North Hero’s GreenTARA Space probes the connections between the content and form of the book, featuring Burlington artist and activist Genese Grill’s massive painted “Almandal Grimoire” and GreenTARA founder Diane Gayer’s Of Earth and Being. The latter features Gayer’s essays and photography contemplating intersections of humans and the natural world, and was printed on the Heidelberg Press at Milton’s Villanti Printers. “While very different in production and as finished entities,” the artists offer, “both books speak to the magical realms of existence.” at GreenTARA Space in North Hero.
