    Lake Champlain Chamber Music Festival

    Tools

    Through Aug. 25

    The theme of “Groundbreakers” is a guiding force behind the 11th annual Lake Champlain Chamber Music Festival. Nine days of programming spotlight trailblazing composers from the last 500 years — from Ludwig van Beethoven to Igor Stravinsky to John Cage — who challenged the conventions of their day. Talks, concerts, master classes and a children’s workshop engage classical music lovers and foster what festival artistic directors Gloria Chien and Soovin Kim describe as “a fresh appreciation for the specific ways each of these geniuses changed the world for future generations!” at Various Chittenden County locations in Burlington (map). $225 for grand festival pass; prices vary for individual events.

    Through Aug. 31

    Born in New York City, Andrew Marks graduated from Middlebury College in 1966, but the education didn’t exactly prepare him for a vocation. After running through a series of varied part-time jobs, he met a working artist and it essentially changed his life. Long a pipe aficionado, Marks returned to Vermont and set about carving, from a stash of briar burl, beautiful and sophisticated smoking pipes — for 40 years. His reputation for these carefully crafted items is international. But eventually Marks began to pursue additional artistic outlets; the Henry Sheldon Museum in Middlebury is now exhibiting a selection of his “fantasy creatures.” Also made from burl, and mounted on stone, the small animals were inspired by the fetish carvings of the Zuni tribe, who believe that all things are imbued with spirit. at Henry Sheldon Museum of Vermont History in Middlebury.

    Rose Umerlik

    Through Aug. 31

    A thought-provoking title on a work of art, or an entire exhibition, may cause viewers to look more closely and think more deeply. That is certainly the case with Rose Umerlik’s solo show of abstract paintings, collectively titled “The Human Experience,” at Northern Daughters in Vergennes. The vaguely organic shapes and flat planes of color, created with graphite and oil on panel, are by no means representational. Only the complex layering and subtle interactions of elements suggest the meaning Umerlik seems to intend. But the artist, who lives in Jeffersonville, gives us satisfying compositions of line and form regardless of connotation. at Northern Daughters in Vergennes. Middlebury Area (map).

    Through Aug. 31

    Lots of Vermonters have a summer camp by a lake, and plenty of flatlanders have second homes in Vermont. But local artist Rory Jackson spends his non-Vermont time in a more unexpected locale: Ghana. Specifically, the peninsula known as Cape Three Points. Whether surrounded by Addison County farmland or West African beaches, Jackson feels at home. at Edgewater Gallery on the Green in Middlebury. Middlebury Area (map).
