One of our very good friends referred this event (Free!), which is surely a different thing to do in NYC this weekend!
“Arrivals Gate – Unexpected Cashmere is Adriana Lerner Adelson's mission to use her creativity while opening borders bringing traditional handmade shawls into modern life. Adriana envisions, curates and distributes high-quality native handicrafts from Kathmandu, Nepal and other communities in developing countries.
She expanded on her experience in the global business world to engage with communities while creating art.
Her creations explore the individuals’ desire to be unique. As a result, what could seem to be only an "accessory", reveals itself to be what we are in the choices we make as individuals.
All pieces achieve unexpected visual similarities, although exploring their amazing different textures. Adriana's creations express, inspire, surprise and connect … the cashmere way.
During her talk, the artist will explain her inspiration process to create the Unexpected Cashmere series, the social project through Arrivals Gate that supports the cashmere factory in Kathmandu, the shawls creation and what is Cashmere, where it comes from, care and usage questions.”
