    'The Way We See It: Social [In]Justice'

    Through Feb. 23

    The exhibition space at Axel’s Frame Shop & Gallery is modest — just one wall opposite the framing area and displays devoted to local artisans. But a trip to the Waterbury venue will reward visitors, with or without framing needs, with compelling visual statements from four featured artists. Kate Longmaid, Ann Young, Jerry Ralya and Michelle Saffran pack a lot into that small space, responding to the theme of social injustice — racism, sexism, genocide and religious persecution — with evocative paintings, pastel drawings and photography. The works are as timely as they are cogent. at Axel's Gallery & Frame Shop in Waterbury. Mad River Valley/Waterbury (map).

    Talk about meta curation. For this exhibition at the Vermont Arts Council’s Spotlight Gallery, Vermont Art Guide editor Ric Kasini Kadour recruited nine other art professionals to each choose, in turn, an artist they deem “watchable.” Given the sheer quantity of capable artists in Vermont, the winnowing alone must have been challenging. In the end, the 10 chosen artists represent a diverse approach to contemporary art in a variety of mediums. They are: Sarah Amos, Clark Derbes, Hasso Ewing, Andrew Frost, Sally Gil, Sean Hunter Williams, Elizabeth Nagle, Andrew Orr, Rhonda Ratray and Jackson Tupper. at Spotlight Gallery in Montpelier.

    Michael Chaney is a professor of English and African American studies at Dartmouth College. His wife, Sarah Biggs Chaney, is a lecturer and administrator at the school, as well as a poet. Together they collaborate on mixed-media artworks that combine their visual and verbal skills “to record our experiences.” The Chaneys’ almanac series is represented in a current 26-artist exhibit at T.W. Wood Gallery in Montpelier. In fact, “Almanac 4” — inspired by Februa, the ancient season of midwinter — earned a people’s choice award. In addition to text and painting, the quilt-like piece repurposes cotton swabs, old newspapers, denim, birch bark, salt packets and metal spouts. at T.W. Wood Gallery in Montpelier.
