    In its ongoing 35th anniversary celebration, the Bryan Memorial Gallery in Jeffersonville mounts the second of four themed exhibitions this year featuring works by the museum’s founder and namesake: Alden and Mary Bryan, respectively. The theme of this one: the American Southwest. When not in Vermont or Gloucester, Mass., the couple was fond of traveling to that part of the country and, as usual, setting up their easels. The 30 paintings on view, from the 1940s, include impressionistic watercolors by Mary and more structured oil-on-canvas works by Alden. at Bryan Memorial Gallery in Jeffersonville. Stowe/Smuggs (map).

    With an installation of five large murals and 11 tondos at Burlington’s Flynndog gallery, the Vermont artist expresses what some might consider defamatory political viewpoints. Even painted in subdued black/gray/white, the figurative paintings nearly explode with outrage at actions taken (or ignored) by the U.S. government — as well as capitalism writ large — over the past half century. In a style comparable to that of José Clemente Orozco or Diego Rivera, Salzman pushes all the buttons: racism, fascism, homelessness, immigration, gun violence. A former public school art teacher, Salzman has been spending his retirement years in activism through the brush, illustrating the ways in which the people are oppressed. But his focus on social justice does not obscure the fierce skill of the artwork itself. at Flynndog Gallery in Burlington (map).

    “Almost Forgotten: Exploring the Overlooked Through Line, Shape and Texture,” currently on view in the Vermont Arts Council’s Spotlight Gallery, is a particularly evocative exhibition. Burnim’s loosely representative paintings are “informed by the passage of time, and the echo of what has been, by what is revealed in the weathered surface,” as she writes on her website. Her works reflect an attraction to banal, liminal spaces in the built environment and suggest both reverence and sadness. Burtnett, a longtime photographer and land conservationist, has in recent years been shooting details that defy a viewer’s literal comprehension. He has also mixed photographic images with other mediums, but his newest, almost playfully abstract works favor ink, indigo, graphite and oil stick on paper or board. Both artists’ creations allow viewers to experience wonder and contemplate evanescence. at Spotlight Gallery in Montpelier. Barre/Montpelier (map).
