Moving Pictures: Terry Plater / New Work 
Gallery Night: Friday, January 3, 5pm to 8pm

The paintings, drawings, and photographs in "Moving Pictures: Terry Plater / New Work" are based on Plater's travels in Europe over the past few years, and primarily in 2019 when she undertook an extensive trip to see the work of certain painters firsthand.  

More than just stock motif renderings of "pretty landscapes," these paintings riff on the many ways in which landscape --the land-- works as and opportunity for thise passing through to imagine, to understand, and to project. In this scenario, "landscape" represents the unknown, something which conceals as much as it reveals if we look deep enough.

The CAP ArtSpace installation is conceived as a way for the viewer to observe the process of seeing and thinking which artists rely on in the process of artmaking. Consequently, rough drawings, preparatory sketches, and multiple views of repeating images in different media are displayed. The project, consistent with the imperatives of travel itself, is a work in progress.


Thank you to our 2019 ArtSpace sponsor.
