    Shelburne Museum Classic Auto Festival

    Tools

    Sat., June 15, 10 a.m.-5 p.m. and Sun., June 16, 10 a.m.-5 p.m.

    As Father’s Day approaches, generous children ponder the perfect gift for dad. Local car connoisseurs may opt to treat family members to a day (or two) at the Shelburne Museum Classic Auto Festival. Vintage vehicles made in 1994 or earlier roll onto the museum grounds for this 16th annual cruise down memory lane, presented in collaboration with the Vermont Automobile Enthusiasts. Attendees may also steer toward games, hands-on activities and barbecue fare. This year’s fest features a special focus on trucks. at Shelburne Museum in Shelburne. Chittenden County (map). Regular admission, $8-65; free for members, active military and kids under 5.

    Rattling Brook Bluegrass Festival

    Rattling Brook Bluegrass Festival

    Tools

    Sat., June 15, 11 a.m.-8 p.m.

    “The people who migrated to America in the 1600s from Ireland, Scotland and England brought with them the basic styles of music that are generally considered to be the roots of bluegrass music as it is known today,” according to the Bluegrass Heritage Foundation. Centuries later, the genre is going strong, inspiring several annual festivals in Vermont alone, including the Rattling Brook Bluegrass Festival. From late morning into the night, area acts such as the VT Bluegrass Pioneers; Two Cents in the Till; and Beg, Steal or Borrow (pictured) serve up traditional and original tunes at this 35th annual string-music shindig. at Belvidere Recreational Field in Belvidere. Stowe/Smuggs (map). $20; free for kids under 12.

    'Chicago'

    'Chicago'

    Sat., June 15, 7 p.m.

    When film and theater fans think of Chicago, they may envision the 2002 movie starring Renée Zellweger or the long-running Broadway musical. In fact, the jazz-age story of Roxie Hart, a young wife on trial for murdering her older lover, first hit the silver screen in 1927. Based on a hit 1926 stage play, the silent film was thought to be lost, until 2006. Luckily for cinephiles, an original print turned up in the estate holdings of legendary director Cecil B. DeMille, who supervised the picture’s production. Local composer Jeff Rapsis provides a live score for a Brandon Town Hall silent film series screening. at Brandon Town Hall in Brandon.

    Peter Cunningham

    Peter Cunningham

    Tools

    Through June 15

    “All You See Is Glory; Big Stars and Maritime Moments” is the intriguing title of this photography exhibition. The part in front of the semicolon references a quote from singer-songwriter Janis Ian. The second part indicates the unconventional mixture of images currently on view at the White River Gallery in South Royalton. Photos of celebrities, including musicians, actors and writers, are paired with Cunningham’s scenes from Grand Manan Island in the Canadian Bay of Fundy. What they have in common is mortality. “Everywhere we turn, life we’ve known is disappearing before our eyes,” says Cunningham, who has been a professional photographer for four decades. He also teaches Photography as Zen Practice, which suggests a philosophical approach to the evanescence of life, even as his images capture it. at White River Gallery in South Royalton.

    Joseph Diggs

    Through June 16

    In powerful mixed-media works that combine action painting, photography, graffiti and collage, the Cape Cod artist explores what it means to be a black man in America. In his show “Proud 2 Be American,” at the Brattleboro Museum & Art Center, Diggs contrasts common imagery — baseball, the Fourth of July, the American flag — with reminders of African American realities, exposing the lies behind the rah-rah iconography. “To me painting is magic,” he writes on his website. “Images appear out of nothing, blobs of color transform themselves to a new meaning. … The process of making art has helped me emotionally by providing a physical escape.” at Brattleboro Museum & Art Center in Brattleboro.
