    Women's Wave Montpelier

    Tools

    Sat., Jan. 19, 10 a.m.-12 p.m.

    Following a wave of women elected to Congress in the 2018 midterm elections, Women’s March Vermont presents Women’s Wave Montpelier, a rally on the Vermont Statehouse lawn held in conjunction with sister marches and rallies around the world. “We’ve been organizing locally to advocate for the policies that matter to us and impact women’s lives,” says WMV cochair Kristen Vrancken. Activists hear from speakers such as former member of the Vermont House of Representatives Kiah Morris and former governor Madeleine Kunin. Folks can also expect the announcement of a women’s agenda that includes federal policy demands and highlights local progressive legislative initiatives. at Vermont Statehouse lawn in Montpelier.

    James Secor

    James Secor

    Tools

    Through Jan. 26

    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).
