The Chicago Cultural Center proudly presents the work Sandra Holubow. Her paintings and collages remind us to treasure what we have now, because our cities seem disposable in our cultural pursuit of the New. The 28 works on exhibit are dynamic images of urban density and energy. Her ordinary landmarks become iconic: Trains and tracks are reminders of a journey we all must take, dark nights with bright lights become beacons of hope, and telephone poles connect us through communication. Holubow infuses these subjects with strength, rendered caringly and compassionately. In cherishing the present - the here and now - we are re-assured of the continuum and continuity of life. By idealizing city life and the ties that bind, Holubow reveals the courage and adaptability of the human spirit. In the wisdom of her observations we cannot help but ask, “What will we as individuals and as a people leave behind?” This show is exquisitely set in the Renaissance Court Gallery, which is reserved for masters and doyennes age 55 and older. Enjoy!
