Visual arts and shows

BRATTLEBORO March Featured Artist: Dante Corsano: Dante has been woodworking since 1973 when he began making drums and instruments which he sold out of his truck in Brooklyn, NY. His craft evolved to making furniture using Japanese hand planing and joinery techniques and turn-of-the- century carving methods. His designs are understated and highlight the natural beauty of the carefully chosen wood being shaped. His latest pieces, available exclusively at Gallery in the Woods, are made with woods such as Cherry, Walnut, Mahogany, Birds Eye Maple and End Grain Larch. 11 a.m.-5:30 p.m. Mon.-Sat; 12 noon-5 p.m. Sun. Through Wednesday, March 30. Free. Gallery in the Woods, 145 Main St. Information: 802-257-4777; Click for more info on Web in new window.

Ideas and education

GRAFTON "Hyenas, Carnivores and the Ecosystem" (In-person/Zoom): Large carnivores play critical roles in ecosystems around the world; they are mammals with unique connections to the land. Join Dr. Jaime Tanner for her talk about one of the most least appreciated but legendary carnivores – the spotted hyena. As the most abundant large carnivore in sub-Saharan Africa, the spotted hyena plays an integral role in the predator-prey dynamics of the Serengeti ecosystem. The patterns of rainfall as well as the variation in soil and vegetation in the Serengeti drives the movements of large herbivores that, in turn, sustain large carnivore populations. 7:30-8:30 p.m. Offered by The Nature Museum of Grafton. Tanner's research focuses on the relationship between feeding behavior and skull morphology, primarily in carnivorous mammals. This work takes an integrative approach, combining behavioral field work, performance data and work with museum collections to understand the shifting relationship between form and function throughout development and in response to environmental changes. $5 to $40 sliding scale (check website). Grafton Community Church, 55 Main St. Information: Register for Zoom link: Recording available afterward if you aren't able to join us.
