The artist’s name may ring a bell: Koren has contributed close to a thousand cartoons to the New Yorker since 1962, featuring a lovably shaggy cast of characters, which one wag described as “Muppets on Rogaine.” This five-decade survey features original drawings for Koren’s cartoons and illustrated books, and also débuts a quartet of panoramic drawings, inspired by the dioramas at the American Museum of Natural History. A public reception, from 5 to 7, celebrates the show’s opening. (A related exhibition is installed at the Luise Ross gallery, in Chelsea, where a reception will be held on May 1, from 3 to 5.) Opens April 27.
