About the show

Columbus Nocturnes by Jessica Wojtasek opens October 5 at Studios on High Gallery and continues through October 31. The show highlights neighborhoods from around Columbus including the Short North, German Village, Bexley, Downtown and Clintonville. 

Jessica Wojtasek is an urban landscape painter. Her show ‘Columbus Nocturnes’ is a visual narrative of different Columbus neighborhoods at dusk.  Living in cities can be unremarkable at times. For ‘Columbus Nocturnes’ the artist sought out these familiar settings and focused on their uniqueness. She highlights the subtle qualities that sometimes go unnoticed; the simple beauty of how a cool streetlight reflects over pavement in the rain.  

Wojtasek’s nocturne paintings balance realism with abstraction to create an illusion of reflectivity, placing the viewer directly in the scene. These works depict the city of Columbus with drama, mood and personality. 

Columbus Nocturnes runs from October 5 – 31, 2019 

The artist will be present during gallery hop on Saturday October 5 from 6-9pm, or by private appointment upon request.
