    Mark Padmore & Paul Lewis

    Tools

    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. Middlebury Area (map). $6-30.

    Fri., Jan. 18, 7 p.m. and Sat., Jan. 19, 7:50 a.m.

    The sixth annual Vermont Burlesque Festival cranks up the heat with four nights of sizzling entertainment. For the first time, the steamy soirée incorporates film, kicking off with a screening of the indie drama Becoming Burlesque, in which a modern Muslim girl experiences the world of cabaret. Throughout the fest, more than 120 comedians, musicians, variety acts and, of course, burlesque performers sashay across stages in Burlington and Barre. Among the can’t-miss talent is the so-called Boss of Burlesque, Foxy Tann of Minneapolis (pictured), who emcees Friday’s Granite City Showcase. Festival proceeds support the Pride Center of Vermont and the University of Vermont Cancer Center. at Various Barre and Burlington locations in Burlington (map). $15-172.

    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).

    Varujan Boghosian

    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).

    Martha Hull

    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).

    Emily Mason

    Emily Mason

    Tools

    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.
