at his latest exhibition, Unscripted
, at the Saint Louis University Museum of Art (3663 Lindell Boulevard; 314-977-2666 or www.sluma.slu.edu
). The St. Louis native's drawings, paintings and sculptural creations are based on a personal mythology that resonates with his love of desert environments, and also reflects concerns about our own ties to the land. James M. Smith: Unscripted
opens with a free public reception from 5:30 to 8 p.m. Friday, June 28. The work remains up through Sunday, August 25, and the gallery is open Wednesday through Sunday.
