The Opera Gallery in New York is pleased to announce an upcoming group exhibition titled Made in New York, featuring works by Andy Warhol, Jean Michel Basquiat, Lori Earley, Roy Lichtenstein, Keith Haring, Ron English, and more. Opening Friday, April 4th, Made in New York will remain on view thru April 25th.
While we’re on the topic of Lori Earley, we’re happy to announce that the thief responsible for stealing not one, but two of Earley’s drawings has been caught! The thief, Mikel Lemoine, 35, from the Rockaways, was arrested last week and charged with grand larceny after ripping off five other art galleries! Unfortunately, the two pieces still remain missing. We have to admit, Mr Lemoine has good taste, but hey, at least Lemoine got what was coming to him. Details at loriearley.com.
