About the Gallery //

Haven Gallery is run by Erica Berkowitz and Joseph Weinreb. The gallery first opened in 2015 in the Carriage House of historic Northport, NY. Within two years, the gallery doubled in size and expanded into the entire Carriage House building. Through their successful in-house exhibitions and presentations at art fairs both domestic and international, Haven opened a secondary location at 90 Main St., in 2020, during the height of the Covid pandemic. It was at that point, that Erica and Joseph knew it was time to find a permanent location for their artists. In January of 2022, they bought the building at 50 Main st., and opened its doors as Haven Gallery’s perennial home.

Haven Gallery’s focus is on exhibiting emotionally, intellectually and imaginatively driven, representational artwork that connects the audience and artist with universal axioms and passions. We work with both emerging and established artists who transcend their medium and subjects by exploring the world around them as well as the one within themselves.

Kukula, The Zohar

Artist Statement //

This new collection is indirectly inspired by the Zohar, a Jewish middle ages mystical theory from The Kabbalah, which in Hebrew means “Splendor and Radiance”. The inspiration took me to a non-religious path in observing life and its meaning, and questioning if there even is one. There is beauty in the acceptance of the sequel of one’s life. The story that is being told through pain and joy, with the fragile and flitting existence of moments and memories (like the love your baby-turned child-turned adult, akin to a floating balloon that you try to hold tight, so it would not slip out of your hands and disappear into the sky forever. 

The balloon is an important symbol in my work- the innocence, the fragility, the fun and the loss – the essence of life itself in one cheap but wonderful mass produced plastic waste which can bring a room to life, or a child’s day into a celebration and later on, into a tragedy in its ending. 

This collection is about observing your story, all while knowing that the main character would eventually die in the end of it, yet, is it a tragedy or a celebration?

About Craww //

Living on the edge of the Peak District in the UK and surrounded by hills, woods and open moorland, Craww’ss work reflects an ongoing fascination with the natural world, and the relationships we have with it. His work creates narratives that are drawn from the beauty to be found in contradictions and ambiguity – life and death, beauty and decay, strength, fragility, the interplay between conflicting and complementing forces of nature and the constructs that mark our passing.  

Each piece is a story, or an aspect of an unfolding story that writes itself as he works on it. As his muses pass through time and place they are accompanied in their journey by birds and animals. Often framed by classical and historical reference points and surrounded by flowing lines and natural forms, Craww works to uncover their ambiguous connections and hidden narratives and explore how the passage of time shapes the relationship between ourselves and nature. With successful shows in the UK and US, he has found collectors and fans around the world.
