Maps Contemporary Art Space: Saturday, 4 August 2007

Patrick Hunt, Dave Johnson, Jamie Kreher: "Prescribed Environments"

"Prescribed Environments" will open Saturday, August 4th from 6-10 pm, and will be on view from August 4th-September 1st, 2007. After the opening gallery hours are by appointment only, please call (618)334-4347 or e-mail us to schedule an appointment.

By emphasizing the mundane details present in the pocket cultures of middle-class, suburban America, these artists bring to light the evolutionary shift in the manner of which we construct our private and public environments. Whether it be a parking lot island, interior office space, or suburbia under construction, the images presented in "Prescribed Environments" provide a tragic and at times sarcastic glimpse into the monotonous organization of the landscape of middle America.
