EXCLUSIVE PICS: Gallery Opening And After-Party for Hot Artist BRIAN KENNY


Where: The 5+5 Gallery in Dumbo, Brooklyn

What: Last night's opening of "Targets & Etchings," artist Brian Kenny's first-ever solo show in New York City.  (He and his boyfriend Slava Mogutin also create art together as SUPERM.)  The show includes old police-shooting targets that Brian and collaborators have wildly transformed with their own illustrations of weapons, body parts, bling and much more.
