As a complement to the other exhibits in St. Nicholas Park this weekend, we stumbled upon the Harlem Needle Arts exhibition called “The Blossom of Fiber Art.” The exhibition showcased soft sculptured plant life and floral arrangements created through the mediums of crochet, knit, quilt, felt, and weave. Artists with pieces on display included Denise Bradley, Sahara Briscoe, Lisa Daehlin, Gail Edwards, Laura R. Gadson, Deborah Gray, Ife Felix and Shimoda.

In case you missed the exhibition in the park, you can catch “The Blossom of Fiber Art and Portraits in Quilt” by Laura R. Gadson next month. The Walking Artist Tour will be on Thursday, July 8, 2010 at 7PM at Strivers Garden Gallery. There will be two additional Sunday viewings on July 11 and 18, 2010 from 2:00-5:00PM.
