Laurie Lipton:Carnival Of Death
Opening Reception: Saturday, October 1st, 7-11pm
Last Rites Gallery presents Carnival Of Death, new works by Laurie Lipton, in what will be her first solo show at the gallery. A master of graphite, Laurie Lipton’s detailed drawings explore the passages of life and the portal into death. With technical prowess, she approaches her subject matter with a unique blend of both elegance and dark humor. Influenced by Dia de los Muertos iconography, this exhibit runs just prior to The Day Of The Dead, commemorating the holiday by which it was inspired…

Friday, September 30 @ The Bell House 7pm and 9pm show
Born in 1967, Louis CK got his start in comedy after moving to New York City in 1989 and appearing on as many of the numerous televised comedy programs being shot in the city as possible. Soon making short films and touring the country on the comedy circuit, CK got his start in television as one of the original writers for the wildly irreverent Conan O’Brien Show when it premiered in 1993. Masterminding such long-running skits as the “Staring Contest” and “Actual Items” (some of which continued to appear regularly, years after his departure), CK continued to make short films as he later worked for The Late Show with David Letterman and The Dana Carvey Show, all the while gaining popularity as a talented comedian.
