Maggie Evans exhibition: 'Status'

Savannah, Georgia-based artist Maggie Evans (M.F.A., painting, 2008) creates paintings and drawings that depict uniform rows of chairs and nondescript apartment buildings. Her work explores cultural hierarchies and the human desire to be a part of, or detached from, class systems. The absence of the human figure in her work, coupled with unspecified municipal locations, allows the viewer to reflect on the inescapable task of finding one's place within any given society.

Evans is an award-winning artist who divides her time between Savannah and Hangzhou, China. A SCAD alumna and adjunct professor, she has exhibited extensively in the U.S. and abroad.
