    Thu., April 26, 7 p.m.

    Music lovers: How far would you go to find the perfect record? Ollie, a jazz collector played by Rory Culkin in the 2017 film The Song of Sway Lake, is set on acquiring a rare album left behind by his deceased father. Ollie’s plan to steal the vinyl from his wealthy grandmother comes to a screeching halt when his accomplice, a Russian drifter played by Robert Sheehan, becomes infatuated with the matriarch. Shot on location in the Adirondack Mountains, the lush, dreamy and sometimes melancholy movie is shown by the Vermont International Film Festival as part of its Monthly Screenings series. at Film House, Main Street Landing Performing Arts Center in Burlington (map). $5-8; free for Vermont International Film Festival members.

    '10 Years: The Cameron Print Project'

    '10 Years: The Cameron Print Project'

    Tools

    Through April 29

    Collaborating with an established artist is a privilege not often afforded to students in undergraduate studio art courses. Thanks to a generous alumni contribution, however, the Cameron Print Project at Middlebury College has been pairing students in professor Hedya Klein’s printmaking classes with an exciting range of international contemporary artists since 2008. Offering up 29 prints made collectively by 140 students, this exhibition at the college art museum represents the fruits of the Renaissance-style apprenticeship model, with works made under the direction of artists including Derrick Adams, Mark Dion, Kati Heck, Tomas Vu, Rona Yefman and more. at Middlebury College Museum of Art in Middlebury.

    Betsey Garand

    Betsey Garand

    Tools

    Through June 15

    Sometimes airy to the point of sparseness, other times deeply dense and layered, the works of the longtime printmaker are playful and tactile. Garand, who teaches printmaking at Amherst College, blends techniques —woodcut, monotype, pochôir, spit-bite aquatint, lift-ground aquatint, and à la poupée — for richly textured biomorphic vignettes whose forms seem to fluctuate and float like pretty slide specimens. Reception and artist talk: Saturday, May 5, 4-6 p.m. at White River Gallery @ BALE in South Royalton. Randolph/Royalton (map).

    Nadia Myre

    Nadia Myre

    Tools

    Through May 27

    Part of the Montréal Museum of Fine Arts’ series focusing on indigenous female artists, “Scattered Remains” is the Québécois artist’s first solo museum show. As a member of the Algonquin First Nation tribe of Kitigan Zibi Anishinabeg, Myre has worked across mediums for nearly two decades creating a body of work that probes at questions of identity, memory and historical trauma. From 2005 to 2013, she invited visitors to sew their scars — of body or psyche — onto 10-inch squares of canvas; “The Scar Project” amassed some 1,400 works. Others reference traditional indigenous beadwork, such as the series “Indian Act,” in which Myre has modified the Canadian legislative document using tiny red and white beads. Most recently, in “Code Switching,” she re-presents the remains of pipes scavenged from the River Thames during a 2015 residency, toying with notions of the enigmatic artifact and authenticity. at Montréal Museum of Fine Arts in Montreal.
