Jeremy Mackenzie: Hidden Blueprints. Jeremy Mackenzie is a Champlain College student who turned to his particular art, wood scrollwork, after being incarcerated at the Lee Adjustment Center in Beattyville, Kentucky. While in prison, Mackenzie drew the “blueprints” for the intricate carvings he planned to create upon his release. These drawings, comprised of many sheets of paper taped together, had to be kept secret or they would have been confiscated. He successfully kept the drawings hidden for years and began his scrollwork following his release. Mackenzie documented his progress as he worked, which was done in a sweltering attic. Mackenzie is currently a fulltime cinematography student at Champlain College. Runs through Nov. 28. Amy Tarrant Gallery, Burlington. Gallery Hours: Saturdays, 11 a.m. -4 p.m. Information:
