Thomas Egan, "Pool Moles," 2006.

GO NORTH – A Space for Contemporary Art is pleased to announce Thomas Egan’s first solo show with the gallery. “Night Shift” is a selection of Egan’s nocturnal photographs taken in and around seemingly uninhabited urban and suburban areas, including parks, pools, railroad overpasses, and piers. Although devoid of people, these images abound with the ghosts of various daytime human activities, or seem to anticipate the stirrings of the waking world. In the case of Egan’s lush and gently seductive images of trees and leaves, nighttime flora either coyly shrink from our view, filtering harsh streetlight through lacy screens, or stand starkly illuminated as if by police searchlights. Egan’s colors are often strange, subterranean and electric, and tend to render the familiar unfamiliar.

“Night Shift” runs from November 11 through December 3, 2006. On Saturday, November 11, there will be a reception for the artist from 6 to 9 pm.

GO NORTH is the latest addition to the Hudson River towns’ vibrant art scene, which includes such notable venues as Dia:Beacon, Van Brunt Gallery, Max Protetch, BAU, and Yellow Bird Gallery. The gallery's aim is to further enhance the cultural life of Beacon through group exhibitions, individual artist projects, and site-specific installations.

Hours: Friday to Sunday 12 to 6 pm, and by appointment.
