The Collisions tonight at the Stand

Lori Der Hagopian, the proprietor of The Stand, the gallery kiosk on East Seventh Street at Avenue C (a former newsstand), is hosting her first opening here tonight... she is presenting work by Brennan Cavanaugh...

The Collisions are collages made from one edition of The New York Times. Per Lori: "Images from that day's paper are chosen and re-assembled, with x-acto knife and gluestick, to create a personal and surreal revisioning of the day's news."

The opening starts at 7 p.m. The exhibit is up through Sept. 30.

We wrote about The Stand back in May. You can find that post here.

Thanks for sharing Grieve. This exhibit sounds interesting.

The headline had me thinking this was a show by some hot new young rock band. Call me a throwback but I miss the days when there were more than a handful of music venues around here and checking out bands (and hell even playing your own shitty gigs with your wannabe band) was a fun thing to do. Does anybody remember...Brownie's?

Kudos to Lori for bringing art into such a great space at accessible neighborhood times! We had fun at the opening and bought a beautiful painting at street art prices. Lucky on 7th St.
