Ten artists infuse architectural and spatial studies with personal perspective in the exhibition Plane and Elevation. Derived from architectural terms referring to the conceptual rendering and the physical realization of a building, Plane and Elevation includes drawings, sculptures, installations, and video works that manipulate perceptions of scale, perspective, and space. These are renderings invested with personal narrative and collective history. The selected artists include: Clare Churchouse; Terence Gower; Nicolas Guagnini; Colin Keefe; Jeff Preiss; Ryan Reggiani; Karin Schneider; Katrin Sigurdardottir; Mike Peter Smith; and Sarah E. Wood

As part of Plane and Elevation, Terence Gower’s installation in Art in General’s street-level Project Space Color/Plane Study II is on view 24 hours a day. An eight by twelve-foot wall drawing shows the Art in General Project Space in axonometric form–a scale rendering, like a floor-plan, that shows the space’s volume in three-dimensions as well. The drawing shows a pristine version of the Project Space, stripped of all its architectural details (door, column, paneling) and divided into three distinct planes: red, gray, and a photographic image.

Art in General, founded by artists in 1981, is a non-profit arts organization that has exhibited the work of nearly 4,000 artists working across a wide range of media. Many of its exhibitions, such as Plane and Elevation, include the work of artists selected from a regular open submissions process.
