    Mon., Jan. 21, 4:30 p.m.

    Author, social ethicist and religious scholar Jonathan L. Walton was raised to honor the mission of the civil rights movement. “It … was about how do you extend the legacy of service and commitment to something greater than yourself,” he explained in a 2013 Boston Globe interview. The Harvard University professor of religion and society shares his expertise in books such as 2009’s Watch This! The Ethics and Aesthetics of Black Televangelism and 2018’s A Lens of Love: Reading the Bible in Its World for Our World. His keynote address for the Saint Michael’s College Martin Luther King Jr. Convocation Week is “No One Is Free Until We Are All Free: The Centrality of Collective Liberation for an Inclusive Vision of the World.” at Chapel of Saint Michael the Archangel, Saint Michael's College in Colchester. Chittenden County (map). Free.

    Through Jan. 26

    BigTown Gallery in Rochester has previously shown the work of master collagist artist Varujan Boghosian; the current exhibit, titled simply “Late Work,” is his fourth solo show at the venue. The richly colored constructions and collages are visual delights, incorporating references to mythology, literature and, if you look closely, a whiff of political protest. The 92-year-old Hanover-based artist marries wit and whimsy with stunningly precise technique. An accompanying exhibition by Erick Hufschmid features 18 photographs taken in Boghosian’s studio in 2010, along with an essay by poet Charles Simic. Pictured: “Bonaparte’s March” by Boghosian. at BigTown Gallery in Rochester. Randolph/Royalton (map).

    In his newest exhibition, “As Not Seen” at the Center for Arts and Learning in Montpelier, James Secor explores a phenomenon in the built landscape that most of us probably give scant attention: storage units. Working in acrylics, the Vermont artist presents paintings about objects that “fall away as noise,” as he puts it. Secor admires the geometry and repetition in rows of storage units, which speak to excess and possibly hoarding. He even allows evanescent shadows their own planes of brilliant color, as much a part of the scene as the pitched-roof units. Perhaps only in paintings — that is, in an artist’s eye — do these caches of consumerism convey “a formal, minimalist beauty,” as Secor would have it. Pictured: “Units M-Q (Mickey D’s).” at Center for Arts and Learning in Montpelier. Barre/Montpelier (map).

    Through Jan. 26

    “Cute + Deadly” is a perfect characterization for Hull’s work. Without committing fully to either, she invents a union of macabre and adorable. In her imagination, a kitty is dressed as the Grim Reaper, a red bunny looks like a punkish devil with a tiny pitchfork, and a hunk of cheese reclines in a bordello with a come-hither look. Other works are just plain funny. In one new image posted on Hull’s website, she shows us how Santa gets into your house if you don’t have a chimney. The Burlington artist also notes, “I love petting zoos, rainbows, spiders, cheese and contemplating the end of the world.” That explains a lot. at The Daily Planet in Burlington (map).

    Through Feb. 10

    In her solo exhibit “To Another Place,” the 86-year-old abstract painter shows a whopping 50 paintings. Many of them have not appeared in public before. Mason lives and gardens in Brattleboro during the summer and spends the rest of the year in her native New York City. She grew up under the influence of her mother, Alice Trumbull Mason, who cofounded the American Abstract Artists group. And so Mason was literally born into what would become her métier: vibrant, luminous, lyrical abstractions on canvas. She studied at the Haystack Mountain School of Crafts in Maine and the Accademia di Belle Arti in Venice. While in Italy, Mason married fellow painter Wolf Kahn; in 1968, the couple purchased a farm in Brattleboro. Their part-time presence has long enhanced Vermont’s art community. “To Another Place,” on view through February 10, includes works from Mason’s Italian period and the six decades that followed. at Brattleboro Museum & Art Center in Brattleboro.
