    'Conduits'

    'Conduits'

    Tools

    Through Oct. 31

    At the Vermont Arts Council’s Spotlight Gallery, works by three artists speak to the essence of art appreciation itself. Painters Richard Heller and Liz Hawkes deNiord and wet plate collodion print photographer Rachel Portesi “challenge the viewer to engage with the works, discovering connected meaning beyond what is seen,” according to a gallery statement. Heller’s paintings most literally hew to the theme with extraordinary spatial depth and infinite networks that seem equally rooted in mathematics and biology. Hawkes deNiord creates deeply layered paintings, allowing luminescence to peer through. Portesi uses an evocative 19th-century photographic technique that may inspire viewers to question their relationship to hair — and perhaps to pine for the heyday of analog photography. at Spotlight Gallery in Montpelier.

    Galen Cheney & Tessa O'Brien

    Galen Cheney & Tessa O'Brien

    Through Nov. 1

    Continuing an exploration she began during a 2015 residency in China, Cheney works accumulated papers — ticket stubs, receipts, fragments of old paintings — into multilayered constructions. In this way are her new works built from the past. Memories also inform O’Brien’s abstracted representational works, as she refers to photographs she’s taken to document places, times and moods. at T.W. Wood Gallery in Montpelier.

    'Pride and Prejudice'

    'Pride and Prejudice'

    Tools

    Sundays, 2 p.m. Continues through Oct. 20

    “Jane Austen was a radical,” writes Lost Nation Theater producing artistic director Kathleen Keenan in a press release for the Montpelier theater company’s production of Pride and Prejudice. “The fact that she wrote these stories, that they were completely from the feminine perspective … was radical.” For the final show of its 2019 season, LNT stages Austen’s beloved tale of the strong-willed Lizzy Bennet and the wealthy and enigmatic Mr. Darcy. Keenan directs a cast of Vermont and New York City actors in Kate Hamill’s lively theatrical adaptation that the Wall Street Journal says is “done over in the revved-up manner of a Hollywood screwball comedy.” at Lost Nation Theater, Montpelier City Hall in Montpelier. Barre/Montpelier (map). $10-30.
