    Peter Cunningham

    Peter Cunningham

    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.

    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.

    Through June 23

    In its ongoing 35th anniversary celebration, the Bryan Memorial Gallery in Jeffersonville mounts the second of four themed exhibitions this year featuring works by the museum’s founder and namesake: Alden and Mary Bryan, respectively. The theme of this one: the American Southwest. When not in Vermont or Gloucester, Mass., the couple was fond of traveling to that part of the country and, as usual, setting up their easels. The 30 paintings on view, from the 1940s, include impressionistic watercolors by Mary and more structured oil-on-canvas works by Alden. at Bryan Memorial Gallery in Jeffersonville. Stowe/Smuggs (map).

    Al Salzman

    Al Salzman

    Tools

    Through June 26

    With an installation of five large murals and 11 tondos at Burlington’s Flynndog gallery, the Vermont artist expresses what some might consider defamatory political viewpoints. Even painted in subdued black/gray/white, the figurative paintings nearly explode with outrage at actions taken (or ignored) by the U.S. government — as well as capitalism writ large — over the past half century. In a style comparable to that of José Clemente Orozco or Diego Rivera, Salzman pushes all the buttons: racism, fascism, homelessness, immigration, gun violence. A former public school art teacher, Salzman has been spending his retirement years in activism through the brush, illustrating the ways in which the people are oppressed. But his focus on social justice does not obscure the fierce skill of the artwork itself. at Flynndog Gallery in Burlington (map).
