arts council hosts hand embroidery show

 A show of Indian Hand Embroidery by Usha Shah is being held in the Spotlight Gallery @ The ARTS, 32 West Market Street Corning, New York running through September.. 
Usha's embroidery is intricate and sophisticated combining simple patterns, which sometimes overlap in elaborate designs, with rich colors on vibrant silk, chiffon and linen from India. Usha uses traditional designs, as well as patterns that she has designed herself, to decorate traditional Indian clothing.
