On October 1st, Last Rites Gallery in New York will be opening the latest solo exhibition from Laurie Lipton. Entitled The Carnival Of Death, this now show features 19 graphite drawings, and on October 2nd from 4 – 6 PM, the gallery will host Looking Lightly On Death, an art discussion and book signing. Laurie will go over her new show, drawing techniques, and thoughts on the afterlife all while patrons enjoy some tea and prepare questions for the artist. She will also be signing copies of her book Extraordinary Drawings, which will be available at the gallery. I’ve only been able to see Laurie’s work in person a few times, but I can assure you that it is work the trip. It’s not often you get to see graphite works of this scale and precision; the content alone makes this is a must see show.
