    Through Nov. 20

    The Colorado-based artist’s current exhibition at Stowe’s West Branch Gallery & Sculpture Park is aptly named: “Moving Pictures.” The phrase recalls an old-fangled synonym for film, and Harris’ abstract paintings have a decidedly kinetic quality. According to her artist statement, she thinks of her gestural, layered works as maps or environments, “exploring the imperfect, fleeting changes between the natural and the man-made worlds we navigate on a daily basis.” Harris’ canvases invite the viewer to enter and have a look around. Pictured: “Did You Hear That.” at West Branch Gallery & Sculpture Park in Stowe. Stowe/Smuggs (map).

    Last year she won the “Labels for Libations” competition to create a Magic Hat Brewing Company beer label. Her delightful, whimsical illustrations of the natural world and the creatures that inhabit it adorn prints, greeting cards and small goods. Her work is carried at Vermont venues and select locations around the country. Polanshek’s drawings are realistic but imaginative: She puts bighorn sheep antlers on bears, bat wings on pigs, tortoise shells on bunnies. A selection of her delicately rendered fantasies from the wild is on view at Speeder & Earl’s Coffee. Pictured: “House of Fox.” at Speeder & Earl's Coffee in Burlington (map).

    “Nature is a haunted house,” said Emily Dickinson, “but art is a house that tries to be haunted.” This passage serves to introduce Moss’ solo exhibition, “Landscape Mysteries,” now on view at the BigTown Gallery in Rochester. Creating entirely from memory, the artist and Dartmouth College studio art professor channels experiences and impressions of the natural environment through paint. “My work is often generated out of a distant memory of a physical setting that becomes a metaphor for a personal truth,” he says. As meditations on both wild spaces and psyche, his paintings are doubly haunted. “It is clear that I am trying to hold/reflect the lost moment,” Moss says, “break through the fence of time and reclaim what was given to me as a child on a first-time basis.” at BigTown Gallery in Rochester. Randolph/Royalton (map).
