CHAMPAIGN, Ill. — Two new exhibitions will be on view March 3 through April 8 at I space, the Chicago gallery of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
• “Immanent Light: Architectural Photographs of Henry Plummer” emphasizes the importance of light as a creative tool in architecture. The photographs, which include single images, diptychs and triptychs, represent light-handling traditions handed down from varied cultures and eras, as well as recent experimental work with light by architects from different parts of the world. Plummer is a professor of architecture at the Urbana campus.
• “Strands: A British Exchange Exhibition With Helen Baker Alder, Knighton Hosking and Gordon Senior” showcases works on paper by this trio of artists. The exhibition is the second phase of an exchange, which began last year when works by six art and design professors from the Urbana campus were exhibited in England. The British artists hail from universities that participate in a study-abroad exchange for UI and British students. Alder is head of fine art at the University of Northumbria at Newcastle; Hosking heads the painting program at the University of Wolverhampton’s School of Art and Design; and Senior is course leader of the graduate program at the Norwich School of Art and Design in Norfolk.
An opening reception for both exhibitions is scheduled for 5 to 7 p.m. March 3 at the gallery, 230 W. Superior St., Chicago.
I space gallery hours are Tuesday through Saturday, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
