Visual arts and shows

PUTNEY Susan Breareys Unique Depiction of Animals: Painter Susan Brearey, an art teacher at the Putney School, has pursued elusive images of animals in nature for many years. Her primal, totemic images take the place of the photo-realistic visual details found in some other works of wildlife art. Animals become primeval shapes, rudimentary, and almost featureless set against abstract surfaces. Her evocative approach was inspired in large part by the cave paintings in Lascaux, France. . Through Thursday, January 31. Free. Putney Public Library, 55 Main St. Information: 802-387-4407; Click for more info on Web in new window.
