CRITIC’S PICK: The work of two innovative Georgia artists comes to Whitespace in January. Benjamin Jones’s second solo show at the venue, “Welcome to the Theater,” features mixed media and new sculptures. It’s said to “mix whimsy with fear, demons with compassion, joy with despair,” reflecting “the pain, isolation, loneliness, and human vulnerability, experienced during the pandemic and the subsequent hopelessness that followed as the world dissolved into political and social upheaval.”

“Act 1: From Dust” by Shawn Campbell, represents the myth of the American cowboy, “cultivated from dust, pushed west and back east,” a press release states. “Cowboys have been recorded on the pages of novels, projected on silver screens, and broadcasted across radio waves, all while being consumed, sold, and romanticized.” Campbell’s work focuses on mythology, propaganda, consumerism, and social class.

There will be an opening reception on Sat., Jan. 13, from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. — Kevin C. Madigan
