JONATHAN WITZKY EXHIBITION
Reception: September 10, 2020 | 5:30 p.m.
Jon Witzky is a painter living in Savannah, Georgia and teaching at Georgia Southern University. Jon’s 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. Jon’s current paintings are populated with ghostly figures and landscapes with powerful auras. Created in Makanda, Illinois and Savannah, Georgia, 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. Jon can often be found working in his studio at Sulfur Studios in Savannah.
