    Through Dec. 5

    The Brooklyn-based artist calls the contents of her exhibit “paintings and comics.” And so they are. But that doesn’t really explain her unique combination of cartoon-y line drawing, acrylic paint and fabric-inspired backgrounds (specifically, William Morris textiles). With speech bubble overlays, the works are meme-ready. In “Say Nice Things to Me,” currently at Scavenger Gallery in White River Junction, Musgrove further explains in an artist statement that she explores memoir through various modes. Visitors to the petite jewelry shop and gallery can ponder paintings that the artist says dissect an affair “for the purpose of posterity, insight and reckoning.” at Scavenger Gallery in White River Junction.

    Ever wonder what’s happened to all those old telephone booths? Well, Studio Place Arts in Barre has repurposed one of them — sans phone — as a very tiny art venue. Named the “Quick Change Gallery” (presumably a reference to Clark Kent/Superman’s speedy switcheroo?), it’s clearly suitable for exhibitions of small works. Currently, that would be a dozen pencil drawings by Mark Heitzman. The central Vermont cardiologist and artist is noted for his minimalist but meticulous works; his phone booth show, titled simply “Graphite,” is no exception. at Studio Place Arts in Barre.

    Through Dec. 13

    It is a sad fact of human evolution that there are so many reasons to express resistance to one another. University of Vermont students in a 2018 art history class chose the timely topic, curating an exhibition at the Fleming Museum of Art with artworks and objects primarily drawn from the museum’s permanent collection. The show features the work “of historical and contemporary artists who have countered adversity and hardship with empowerment and expression,” explains exhibition text. The subjects range from racial violence to political suppression to the underrepresentation of women in the art world. at Fleming Museum of Art, University of Vermont in Burlington (map). Free with museum admission.

    “Breathe the Wind” at White River Gallery in South Royalton features the Norwich artist’s small gouache works on paper as well as larger oil paintings on panel and canvas. Perhaps it is Emlen’s background in graphic design that informs her cogent compositions, as well as the patchwork-like rearrangements of loosely rendered landscapes in some of her paintings. The latter are disconcerting, as if a portal to another world had opened up before our very eyes. Though taking her lead from observed reality, Emlen seems to suggest the not-seen quality of the natural world, and it is alluring. at White River Gallery in South Royalton. Randolph/Royalton (map).

    “Anatomy of a Pond” is an apt title for an exhibition of paintings by Adelaide Murphy Tyrol. The natural world — in this case a half-acre body of water on her Plainfield property — has long been a dominant inspiration. Her exhibition, which she calls a “visual biography,” explores the inhabitants of that pond, as well as how the light transforms it. She writes, “The artwork here is an inquiry and an homage to this constantly shifting landscape, both interior and exterior.” Indeed, from the large-scale commercial backdrops she paints in New York City to her intimate illustrations of flora and fauna close to home, Tyrol captures her subjects with both exacting realism and a sense of wonder. Of her paintings on view at Montpelier’s North Branch Nature Center, she writes, “I hope they impart a sense of the magic of our world — of what we look at every day and what blinks back at us.” at North Branch Nature Center in Montpelier.

    It’s increasingly common for artists to take up the cause of endangered species, and for good reason. But perhaps not many use the medium of ceramics. In an exhibition titled “the animals are innocent” at Middlebury’s Henry Sheldon Museum of Vermont History, Maryland artist, author and environmentalist Dana Simson presents ceramic boats as well as paintings featuring animals and a message. Unlike grim images of starving polar bears and plastic-entangled turtles, however, Simson’s works are gaily colorful and kind of adorable. But if her folk-art style is beguiling, her goal is serious: to show that animals are losing habitat and food resources, and suffering as a result of pollution and climate change. at Henry Sheldon Museum of Vermont History in Middlebury.
