    Through Aug. 4

    Simply brushing paint on paper apparently isn’t challenging enough for Bristol artist Karla Van Vliet. She’s developed a way of turning paintings into etchings — or at least they look that way. First she scores the surface; then she applies and removes paint, over and over. The paint fills in the lines to create form. And then, according to a description from Middlebury’s Jackson Gallery, Van Vliet “works with several recurring patterns and images that resonate in her.” As an artist and poet, she holds open lines of communication with the unconscious. A cofounder and editor of deLuge Journal, Van Vliet has published two books of poems and paintings; a new collection of her asemic writing is forthcoming from Shanti Arts Publishing in 2020. at Jackson Gallery, Town Hall Theater in Middlebury.

    Through Aug. 31

    Born in New York City, Andrew Marks graduated from Middlebury College in 1966, but the education didn’t exactly prepare him for a vocation. After running through a series of varied part-time jobs, he met a working artist and it essentially changed his life. Long a pipe aficionado, Marks returned to Vermont and set about carving, from a stash of briar burl, beautiful and sophisticated smoking pipes — for 40 years. His reputation for these carefully crafted items is international. But eventually Marks began to pursue additional artistic outlets; the Henry Sheldon Museum in Middlebury is now exhibiting a selection of his “fantasy creatures.” Also made from burl, and mounted on stone, the small animals were inspired by the fetish carvings of the Zuni tribe, who believe that all things are imbued with spirit. at Henry Sheldon Museum of Vermont History in Middlebury.
