    Sat., July 20, 10 a.m.-4 p.m.

    Those interested in hard-hitting topics such as science, politics, history and health care don’t necessarily have to turn to heavy tomes or lengthy academic articles for information. “Cartooning has exploded as a legitimate medium for exploring nonfiction topics and the textures of lived experiences,” reads the Vermont Folklife Center website. The center celebrates the genre with the third annual Nonfiction Comics Mini-Fest, held at the Saint Albans Museum. This one-day event spotlights Vermont and regional cartoonists, including Marek Bennett, Glynnis Fawkes, Kurt Shaffert and Sarah Yahm, who present on their work and craft. at Saint Albans Museum in St. Albans.

    More and more frequently in the 21st century, intrepid bands like Toronto’s Bernice blur the lines between genres. Led by formally trained jazz musician Robin Dann, the Canadian ensemble wields a magnetic sound defined by an eclectic set of familiar yet disparate characteristics. Moody atmospherics blend with R&B-inspired vocals and quirky electronica architecture. Its most recent release, the off-kilter Persefony Songs, is an enigmatic collection of hallucinatory, experimental tunes strung together like a series of vivid interconnected dreams. Catch Bernice on Saturday, July 20, at ArtsRiot in Burlington. Y La Bamba open, and locals Julia Caesar add support. at ArtsRiot in Burlington (map). $10.

    Through July 23

    Furchgott Sourdiffe Gallery is currently exhibiting 18 artists whose styles and mediums vary significantly. What they have in common, according to the gallery, is an “intense focus on their subject matter.” Though that quality would seem like a given — all artists are focused on their work, no? — calling it out does pique one’s curiosity. Visitors to the Shelburne gallery can experience this creative intensity firsthand, whether it’s expressed as sunlight in a landscape, an interior fantasy or a particularly meditative abstraction. at Furchgott Sourdiffe Gallery in Shelburne.
