    '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).

    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).
