    'Conduits'

    'Conduits'

    Tools

    Through Oct. 31

    At the Vermont Arts Council’s Spotlight Gallery, works by three artists speak to the essence of art appreciation itself. Painters Richard Heller and Liz Hawkes deNiord and wet plate collodion print photographer Rachel Portesi “challenge the viewer to engage with the works, discovering connected meaning beyond what is seen,” according to a gallery statement. Heller’s paintings most literally hew to the theme with extraordinary spatial depth and infinite networks that seem equally rooted in mathematics and biology. Hawkes deNiord creates deeply layered paintings, allowing luminescence to peer through. Portesi uses an evocative 19th-century photographic technique that may inspire viewers to question their relationship to hair — and perhaps to pine for the heyday of analog photography. at Spotlight Gallery in Montpelier. Barre/Montpelier (map).

    Dana Simson

    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. Middlebury Area (map).

    '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).

    Galen Cheney & Tessa O'Brien

    Galen Cheney & Tessa O'Brien

    Tools

    Through Nov. 1

    Continuing an exploration she began during a 2015 residency in China, Cheney works accumulated papers — ticket stubs, receipts, fragments of old paintings — into multilayered constructions. In this way are her new works built from the past. Memories also inform O’Brien’s abstracted representational works, as she refers to photographs she’s taken to document places, times and moods. at T.W. Wood Gallery in Montpelier. Barre/Montpelier (map).
