    Sat., Nov. 23, 8 p.m. and Sun., Nov. 24, 2 & 7 p.m.

    What if the ancient myth of the goddess Persephone took place in modern times? Greek deities get a glamorous makeover for Mythic, Marcus Stevens and Oran Eldor’s new pop-rock musical. It follows the eventual queen of the underworld on a journey of self-discovery in a world where gods take the form of rock stars, politicians and socialites. The offspring of a boho-chic Demeter encounters her all-powerful father Zeus, bad boy Hades and the Britney Spears-esque goddess of love Aphrodite, played by Jessica Gallant (pictured). The Segal Centre for Performing Arts presents the North American premiere of the immortal musical propelled by epic anthems and the complexity of the mother-daughter relationship. at Sylvan Adams Theatre, Segal Centre for Performing Arts in Montréal. Outside Vermont (map). $53-67.

    Vermont artists Arista Alanis, Mary Brevda, Rory Jackson, Joseph Salerno and Homer Wells are featured in this show at Spruce Peak Performing Arts Center, curated by Kelly Holt. Their works respond to the physicality of mountainous landscapes, from Vermont to Patagonia, in a variety of mediums. “Mountain air has a sensory effect like none other; it is home,” Jackson writes in an artist statement. “It is the clean breath that sweeps through the lungs of the hillside.” at Spruce Peak Performing Arts Center, Stowe Mountain Resort in Stowe.

    The Brooklyn-based artist calls the contents of her exhibit “paintings and comics.” And so they are. But that doesn’t really explain her unique combination of cartoon-y line drawing, acrylic paint and fabric-inspired backgrounds (specifically, William Morris textiles). With speech bubble overlays, the works are meme-ready. In “Say Nice Things to Me,” currently at Scavenger Gallery in White River Junction, Musgrove further explains in an artist statement that she explores memoir through various modes. Visitors to the petite jewelry shop and gallery can ponder paintings that the artist says dissect an affair “for the purpose of posterity, insight and reckoning.” at Scavenger Gallery in White River Junction.

    Ever wonder what’s happened to all those old telephone booths? Well, Studio Place Arts in Barre has repurposed one of them — sans phone — as a very tiny art venue. Named the “Quick Change Gallery” (presumably a reference to Clark Kent/Superman’s speedy switcheroo?), it’s clearly suitable for exhibitions of small works. Currently, that would be a dozen pencil drawings by Mark Heitzman. The central Vermont cardiologist and artist is noted for his minimalist but meticulous works; his phone booth show, titled simply “Graphite,” is no exception. at Studio Place Arts in Barre.

    Through Dec. 13

    It is a sad fact of human evolution that there are so many reasons to express resistance to one another. University of Vermont students in a 2018 art history class chose the timely topic, curating an exhibition at the Fleming Museum of Art with artworks and objects primarily drawn from the museum’s permanent collection. The show features the work “of historical and contemporary artists who have countered adversity and hardship with empowerment and expression,” explains exhibition text. The subjects range from racial violence to political suppression to the underrepresentation of women in the art world. at Fleming Museum of Art, University of Vermont in Burlington (map). Free with museum admission.

    'Travis Shilling: Tyrannosaurus Clan'

    'Travis Shilling: Tyrannosaurus Clan'

    Through Feb. 8, 2020

    Shilling, a Canadian Ojibwe painter, filmmaker and playwright — the second artist son of Aboriginal painter Arthur Shilling — was born in Rama, Ontario, and maintains a studio in Toronto. His works in the Burlington gallery may be a revelation to local art viewers. Shilling’s visions frequently depict animals — painted Ojibwe style — at odds with humans who seem blithely bent on destruction. For example, an outsize bird perches on a backhoe that’s digging a channel for a pipeline; a fish hovers alongside an oil rig in the sea. Shilling’s juxtaposition of graphical, vibrant native symbology and darkly impressionistic scenes is jarring — in a good way. Trained in native and contemporary arts, he wields both to address some of the sad consequences of imbalance in the modern world. at BCA Center in Burlington (map).

    Through Jan. 11, 2020

    As everyone knows, you really can’t start too early on your Halloween, um, celebrations — especially when real life is scaring the bejesus out of you. Middlebury’s Henry Sheldon Museum of Vermont History is totally down with this, offering not just an exhibition titled “Conjuring the Dead” but a related series of spook-minded speakers. On view are photographs and original artworks acquired by Solomon Wright Jewett (1808-94), a Vermont farmer and legislator who claimed a special superpower: curing ailments and bringing the deceased back to life. Other artifacts in the show provide context for the rise of 19th-century spiritualism. See website for schedule. at Henry Sheldon Museum of Vermont History in Middlebury. Middlebury Area (map).
