Joel Holub

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

William Crow makes oil paintings of common camping tents he sees while on his many camping trips around New York State. The paintings are derived from drawings made on site. Small and intimate, they are done in a loose, expressionistic style that maintains a straightforward composition.

Joel Holub creates small-scale sculptures and watercolors made from memory. His watercolors are based on roadside landscapes, and are mind shots caught by slow absorption over time (multiple views) or fleeting glimpses from a car window. 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 mounted on discarded/used containers and found materials.
