CHAMPAIGN, Ill. — Painting, printmaking and architectural drawings and models are featured in three new exhibitions on view Nov. 22 through Dec. 21 at I space, the Chicago gallery of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

"I space: 1992-2002" features works by four faculty members – past and present – in Illinois’ College of Fine and Applied Arts, and was organized as a continuation of the gallery’s 10th anniversary-year celebration. The exhibition includes architecture professor Jeff Poss’ sketches, digital images and models of proposed war memorials for the university and the state of Illinois, and two large-scale paintings by retired art and design professor Jerry Savage.

The show also features six new monoprints on wallpaper by art and design professor Dan Socha, and 20 architectural drawings representing travel sketches from Europe by Hub White, a retired professor of architecture who now lives and teaches in Ann Arbor, Mich.

"Race at the Subdivide: Todd Allison" consists of 12 oil and alkyd paintings on panels by the Texas-based artist, who received his master of fine arts degree from Illinois in 1999. In creating the works in this series, Allison began with images collected from satellite photography.

"Split Fractions: Macyn Bolt" features recent oil paintings by the New York artist, who received his master of fine arts degree from Syracuse University. Bolt has exhibited his work extensively in New York, as well as nationally.

An opening reception is scheduled from 5-7 p.m. Nov. 22 at the gallery, 230 S. Superior St., Chicago.

I space gallery hours are Tuesday through Saturday, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
