    Thu., Feb. 21, 12 p.m.

    Most humans are familiar with the responsibilities and challenges of day-to-day life, such as childcare, illness, housekeeping and traffic jams. It may come as a surprise that ants — those six-legged creatures that creep into our kitchens in search of tasty treats — share many of the same concerns. An expert in social insect ecology, University of Vermont associate professor and Department of Biology chair Sara Helms Cahan is no stranger to the similarities and differences between ant and human behavior. In her talk “Life in the Little City,” the scholar examines how these industrious insects demonstrate universal truths about social life. at Fleming Museum of Art, University of Vermont in Burlington (map). Regular admission, $3-10; free for members, faculty, staff, students and kids 6 and under.

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

    Tools

    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.
