Jon Witzky’s solo show “No Strange Land” is on view from September 5 to November 5 at the Averitt Center for the Arts in Statesboro. A closing reception will be held Thursday, November 5 from 5-7 p.m. Witzky teaches foundations and painting at Georgia Southern. His work expresses the essence of places as refracted through memory. It explores the contrast between the mysterious and the familiar, the twilight of the magic hour, or the moment between waking and sleep. Witzky’s current paintings are populated with ghostly figures and landscapes with powerful auras. Created in Makanda, Illinois, and Savannah these works aim to express the mysteries inherent in these places, to suggest possibilities of what lies beyond the shadows, to explore the nightside of the city and the country.

Reception will be socially-distanced. Masks Required.
