    'Travis Shilling: Tyrannosaurus Clan'

    'Travis Shilling: Tyrannosaurus Clan'

    Tools

    Through Feb. 8

    Shilling, a Canadian Ojibwe painter, filmmaker and playwright — the second artist son of Aboriginal painter Arthur Shilling — was born in Rama, Ontario, and maintains a studio in Toronto. His works in the Burlington gallery may be a revelation to local art viewers. Shilling’s visions frequently depict animals — painted Ojibwe style — at odds with humans who seem blithely bent on destruction. For example, an outsize bird perches on a backhoe that’s digging a channel for a pipeline; a fish hovers alongside an oil rig in the sea. Shilling’s juxtaposition of graphical, vibrant native symbology and darkly impressionistic scenes is jarring — in a good way. Trained in native and contemporary arts, he wields both to address some of the sad consequences of imbalance in the modern world. at BCA Center in Burlington (map).

    Through March 14

    Manchester’s stART Space has a new name — Ellenbogen Gallery, after owners Michael and Carolina Ellenbogen. The couple is marking the gallery’s reboot and second anniversary with an artist whose history is much longer. Richard Weis earned his MFA at American University in 1973, along with a prize for painting; he went on to teach at four colleges in as many states. Along the way he received three Fulbright awards and residencies in South Korea and Wales. In 1989, Weis arrived in Vermont to teach at Green Mountain College, which he did until 2010. In tandem with his academic career, Weis has continued to paint bold abstractions — for him a genre of endless potential. “The work often begins with a brief moment, an observation, a smell carried on the wind, a touch, an encounter, a special place, or a memory seemingly out of nowhere,” he writes in an artist statement. “The process of working in the studio allows me to recapture those moments, sparking memories and clarifying ideas.” at Ellenbogen Gallery in Manchester. Manchester/Bennington (map).
