    Fri., Jan. 18, 7:30-9:30 p.m.

    Vermont classical music lovers may be familiar with British pianist Paul Lewis, who has become a Middlebury College Performing Arts Series audience favorite over the years. For the first concert of 2019, the award-winning instrumentalist shares the stage with compatriot tenor Mark Padmore. The pair presents a recital of German lieder, songs written for piano and voice that typically reflect the mood of a poem. Described by the New York Times as an art song “dream team,” Padmore and Lewis breathe life into works by Johannes Brahms, Gustav Mahler and Robert Schumann. at Robison Hall, Mahaney Arts Center, Middlebury College in Middlebury.

Activists hear from speakers such as former member of the Vermont House of Representatives Kiah Morris and former governor Madeleine Kunin.

    Sat., Jan. 19, 8 p.m.

    Johnny A. is a world-class, Boston-based guitarist. In fact, his skills are so legendary that both Gibson and Epiphone named custom guitars after the instrumentalist. Recently, he played a three-year stint with the latest formation of British blues-rock band the Yardbirds, which spawned guitar heroes Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck and Jimmy Page. For this performance, dubbed “Just Me … and My Guitars,” the singer-songwriter explores all the nooks and crannies of the 1960s’ Great British Songbook. He’ll also tell formative tales about his storied career. Catch Johnny A. on Saturday, January 19, at the Higher Ground Showcase Lounge in South Burlington. at Higher Ground Showcase Lounge in South Burlington. Chittenden County (map). $25/30.

    Varujan Boghosian

    Varujan Boghosian

    Tools

    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).

    James Secor

    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).

    Martha Hull

    Tools

    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).
