Joel Holub, William Crow @ Go North, Opening February 3



So Lone Sunshine

William Crow
Joel Holub
February 3rd – February 25th, 2007


GO NORTH – A Space for Contemporary Art is please to announce the opening of
“So Lone Sunshine“ painting, sculpture, and drawings, by New York City based
artists Joel Holub and William Crow. The exhibition runs from February 9th
through February 25th. There will be a reception for the artists on February
3rd, from 6 – 9pm.

Joel Holub makes small scaled sculptural work and watercolor paintings made
from memory. His watercolor paintings are based on roadside landscapes. They
are mind shots caught by slow absorption over time (multiple views) or
fleeting glimpses from a car window. No notes or drawings are made on site;
a minimum of 3 hours is allowed to pass before any writing or sketches are
made. The medium of watercolor lends itself perfectly to the hazy and
unfocused aspects of recollection and the imagined. His sculptural pieces
are portraits of strangers that he sees on the street or in the subway. Also
from memory, they consist of heads made out of Sculpey clay and added to
supports of discarded/used containers and found materials.

William Crow makes paintings of common camping tents that he captures while
on his many camping trips around New York State. Small and intimate, the
paintings are done in a loose expressionistic style maintaining a straight
forward composition. The paintings are derived from drawings made on site
that he later translates into oil paintings.


Hours: Friday through Saturday 12 to 6pm and by appointment.


“So Lone Sunshine” will be on view at Go North – A Space for Contemporary
Art 469 Main Street, Beacon, NY from February 3rd through February 25th,
2007. Please contact Karlos Carcamo or Gregory Slick at
