Visual arts and shows

BRATTLEBORO Vaune Trachtman's "Now is Always" is Vermont Center of Photography's Reopening Exhibit: Trachtman's work reveals a collaboration across time between her father and herself. Using her father's 90-year-old negatives from the Great Depression in Philadelphia and her own cell phone images shot from windows and moving vehicles, Trachtman "creates a feeling of collapsed yet-expanded time." . 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Wed.-Sun. Trachtman is a photographer and printmaker whose work honors the methods and tones of historic processes but without the toxic chemicals. Formerly a master printer of silver gelatin prints and asphaltum-based photogravures, she began to feel that her immune system was being compromised by those processes. She now makes gravures with little more than light and water. Her images explore the evanescence of dreams and memory. (Also see 9/18). Through Sunday, October 31. Free. Vermont Center for Photography, 10 Green St., (right side of the 22 High St. building). Information: www.vcphoto.org, 802-251-6051.

Kids and families

BRATTLEBORO Taking Steps Brattleboro: Being an Executor - What You Need to Know : Have you been asked by a family member or friend to be the executor of their estate and are wondering what is involved? Or perhaps you are considering asking someone to take on this role for you? As an executor, you are the personal representative for someone who has died. You ensure that taxes and debts of the estate are paid off and what is left is dispersed to those designated in the will. The role can be fulfilling and helpful, as well as complicated and time consuming. 4 - 5:30 p.m. Presentation by Amelia Darrow, Esq. and Robert Szpila. Free. Brattleboro Museum & Art Center, 28 Vernon St. Information: 802-257-0124; Click for more info on Web in new window.

Community building

MARLBORO Democratic Town Committee Reorganization (In Person and/or Zoom): This month, Democrats are reorganizing their town committees in all 22 towns of Windham County. We're seeing a pattern of behavior from extreme right-wing groups using anger and conspiracy to dominate the civil discourse in our local and state government. Even if you cannot join the reorganization meeting, please sign up to be a member for your town's committee. 7 p.m. This reorganization occurs every two years. This year it is especially important for voters to join their town's committee. Democratic town committees provide us opportunity to organize in support of candidates and policies that are committed to a Vermont that serves all Vermonters. Marlboro Community Center, 524 South Rd. Information: John Hagen: windhamcountydemocratsvt@gmail.com.
