At the Museums

Calendar At the Museums Bennington Center for the Arts 44 Gypsy Lane, Bennington⌦10am to 5pm, Tues.-Sun. (Closed Mondays) benningtoncenterforthearts.org. 802 442-7158Ongoing: Discover the history and legends of Vermont’s covered bridges in the world’s only museum dedicated to their preservation. Explore the exhibits on engineering, construction, tools, and creators. Bennington Museum 75 Main Street, Rte. 9, Bennington⌦10am to 5pm (Closed Wednesdays) benningtonmuseum.org, 802 477-1571Feb. 1-April 25: “Vermont Impressions.” Drawn from the museum’s permanent collection, this exhibition will feature paintings in the impressionist vein dating largely from 1900-1950, including work by artists such as Clifford A Bayard, Horace Brown, Edwin B. Child and more. ■ May 22-Oct. 31: “State of Craft.” State of Craft is a landmark exhibition examining the evolution of the contemporary studio craft movement in Vermont. Brattleboro Museum & Art Center 10 Vernon Street, Brattleboro 11am to 5pm (Closed Tuesdays) brattleboromuseum.org, 802 257-0124Through Feb. 21: Drawing Itself: A Survey of Contemporary Practice. Drawing Itself offers viewers the rare pleasure of exploring the frequently overlooked art form of drawing. ■ Back Through Black: Marcy Hermansader. Hermansader has constructed a series of collages inspired by and about darkness, giving us much to ponder: darkness as protective but menacing, providing cover but full of dangers. ■ Eric Aho: Ice Box. Aho’s work is a perfect synthesis of abstraction and representation, the general and the particular, process and memory. It is both original and a précis of contemporary and art historical influences. ■ Bill Long: Through The View. Bill Long’s illustrated book Through the View consists of a series of 32 colorful oil paintings that explore the idea of careful observation — with regard not only to what we as viewers see, but also to what the characters that “people” the pictures are looking at. ■  Joseph Fichter: Clarion Call. Joseph Fichter’s horse sculptures are more than descriptions of living animals: they are dynamic depictions of energy in motion. ■ March 28–July 11: Oblique, Acute and Sidelong.
