    Michael Chaney is a professor of English and African American studies at Dartmouth College. His wife, Sarah Biggs Chaney, is a lecturer and administrator at the school, as well as a poet. Together they collaborate on mixed-media artworks that combine their visual and verbal skills “to record our experiences.” The Chaneys’ almanac series is represented in a current 26-artist exhibit at T.W. Wood Gallery in Montpelier. In fact, “Almanac 4” — inspired by Februa, the ancient season of midwinter — earned a people’s choice award. In addition to text and painting, the quilt-like piece repurposes cotton swabs, old newspapers, denim, birch bark, salt packets and metal spouts. at T.W. Wood Gallery in Montpelier.

    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).

    'Elevation 4393'

    Tools

    Through March 31

    The Spruce Peak Performing Arts Center puts the “peak” in a current visual art exhibition. Though its title refers to the height in feet of Mount Mansfield, artists Trevor Corp, Daniel Schechner and Jackson Tupper were invited to respond to the concept of elevation far less literally. Curator Kelly Holt’s prompts included “an influencer of climate,” “how does pattern language enter the creative process?” and “ascend … form the angle … find the burn, and through it levitate.” The trio responded with photography, paintings, sculpture, prints, animation and collaborative works. at Spruce Peak Performing Arts Center, Stowe Mountain Resort in Stowe. Stowe/Smuggs (map).
