    '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.

    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.
