“This summer, Andes is a destination for Beatles memorabilia. A collection of 23 never-before-published images of John Lennon and Yoko Ono in their West Village apartment in New York City are displayed at Andes Art & Antiques. Merna Popper owns the gallery, which is in a barn attached to the back of her house on Main Street in the Delaware County town. Popper’s life has revolved around art. She grew up surrounded by art in New York City, graduated from Sarah Lawrence college with a degree in art and has spent most of her life as an art collector and dealer.When the opportunity came to purchase the rights to the 23 negatives of Lennon and Ono, she was intrigued.”
