By the end of the day, the young Brooklyn-based artist Eric Doeringer was packing up his sidewalk display on West 24th Street. Doeringer has already made a name for himself among regular gallery-goes for selling "bootlegs," or small replicas of works by successful contemporary artists, made by mounting color printouts of the artworks on canvas and covering the whole thing with gel. Prices start at $40 dollars, and they "do quite well," says the artist -- who opens a show of the works at Caren Golden Gallery on June 15, 2002.
