    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 Sept. 4

    With adult offspring living in Spain and Italy, the Montpelier photographer took the opportunity to travel to both countries, camera in hand. Here at home, Jermyn is keen on shooting “relics” — entropic barns, country roads, old glass and the like. “When you go to Europe,” he writes, “relic hunting takes on a whole new meaning when you are shooting a 900-year-old cathedral. It puts things in perspective.” Jermyn’s photo pilgrimage resulted in some 6,000 images. Some of his perspectives on antiquity can be seen at Salaam Boutique in Montpelier through September 4. at Salaam Boutique in Montpelier. Barre/Montpelier (map).
