    Through Aug. 31

    Born in New York City, Andrew Marks graduated from Middlebury College in 1966, but the education didn’t exactly prepare him for a vocation. After running through a series of varied part-time jobs, he met a working artist and it essentially changed his life. Long a pipe aficionado, Marks returned to Vermont and set about carving, from a stash of briar burl, beautiful and sophisticated smoking pipes — for 40 years. His reputation for these carefully crafted items is international. But eventually Marks began to pursue additional artistic outlets; the Henry Sheldon Museum in Middlebury is now exhibiting a selection of his “fantasy creatures.” Also made from burl, and mounted on stone, the small animals were inspired by the fetish carvings of the Zuni tribe, who believe that all things are imbued with spirit. at Henry Sheldon Museum of Vermont History in Middlebury.

    Through Aug. 24

    Based in Montpelier and Brooklyn, Spence is an equestrian who just two years ago began riding with Green Mountain Hounds in so-called drag hunts — in which mounted hunters chase the scent of a fox rather than the animal itself. She is also an artist who draws on the genteel world of fox hunting to express social commentary on gender, power, class and violence. A selection of her gestural, brushy figurative paintings is on view at Helen Day Art Center in Stowe through August 24, guest-curated by Amy Rahn. While equestrian sartorial trappings are recognizable in many of the works, Spence’s moody portraits and genre scenes hint at more universal psychological dramas. The exhibition’s title, “On the Hunt,” only reinforces dualities of rider and ridden, hunter and quarry. at Helen Day Art Center in Stowe. Stowe/Smuggs (map).
