The Mission of Averitt Center for the Arts is to provide quality arts opportunities for our community and serve as a centerpiece for a vibrant historic downtown. It is housed in the 1891 Bank of Statesboro building; the bank closed in 1932 and the City of Statesboro eventually bought it in 1997 to house the David H. Averitt Center for the Arts. The former Georgia Theater building is now the Emma Kelly Theater. Today, the arts center stages theater, musical and dance performances and other events.

    Carolyn Morgan: Tapestries on Canvas

    03/08/2018 - 04/21/2018

    Carolyn Morgan has won the coveted Roxie Remley Award three times over the past five years in the Statesboro Regional Art Association (SRAA) Annual Juried Competition. Highly imaginative, her imagery often takes on the spiritual feeling of stained glass windows. She states, "Using strong composition, visual texture and bold use of color, I trust my intuition to take me on my art and soul journey. With my paintings, I wish to take the viewer on a journey that points out the beautiful complexit... read more

    Odd Couple, Female Version

    04/19/2018 - 04/21/2018

Neil Simon's mismatched couple is butting heads again, but with a new twist: the females run the show in this contemporary comic classic, The Female Odd Couple. This hilarious, fast-paced story focuses on the friendship of two women, messy Olive Madison and neat freak Florence Unger-opposites in every way. Devastated when her husband asks for a divorce, Florence goes missing for an entire day. Worried about her friend, Olive convinces ... read more

    Mary Margaret Duncan Jones: Pushing Boundaries

    04/26/2018 - 07/02/2018

    Mary Margaret Duncan Jones' vibrant patterned work appears on the surface to be happily carefree but under the joyful lyricism of line and color a darker humor is apparent. Her abstract compositions frequently set linear boundaries, many with warning signs, to contain the images within. These images are often not content to be bounded. Her work has a personal, symbolic, psychologically driven narrative much like Arshille Gorky's abstract expressionism. Jones studied at Furman University and a... read more

    Joe Alterman

    05/10/2018 - 05/10/2018

    Pianist Joe Alterman will perform on Thursday, May 10, 2018, at Averitt Center for the Arts. In an age when pianists try to leave no key untouched, Alterman's musical affinities run to spare, single-note gems, a la Horace Silver, or block-chord excursions in the mode of Red Garland. New York is all about the leading edge, but the Atlanta native says his heroes were players who leaned toward the blues. After graduating from NYU, Alterman went on to perform with Houston Person, Les McCann, and ... read more

    The acclaimed Hot Club of San Francisco and the popular French vocalist Isabelle Fontaine have created Meet Me in Paris, a charming concert invoking an unforgettable Parisian experience. Love songs and driving gypsy jazz are a combination made famous during the 20's and 30's in Paris by the legendary Hot Club de France, Django Reinhardt, and Stephane Grappelli. After World War I, the city became a gathering place for artists from around the world and The Hot Club's unique sound of gyps... read more
