John  Givens is a self-taught artist who lives and paints in Statesboro. He has developed a sophistication of form, composition, and use of materials that rivals early 20th century artists. He prefers to draw with French crayons, Conte', and pastels but he is also facile with watercolor and acrylic. His preferred references are old civil rights photographs in journals and scenes from cataclysmic occurrences in the Southern communities near his birthplace. This is his first one-person exhibition.

Located in Rosengart Gallery
