6/15 Green has partnered with two longtime artists to display garden-related art along 15th street during the
Spring Festival. Both are members of the Park Slope Windsor Terrace Artists group. Carol Adams is a
potter who has been creating planters, and will set up shop next to the plant sale. Linda Schneider is a
talented painter specializing in our landscape. She has many bright paintings of the Vermont countryside,
but for this garden fence exhibition she’ll feature luscious Brooklyn scenes. Both – along with dozens of
other ArtsPSWT artists – are showing all weekend (and next!) at their annual spring salon at Ossam Gallery
on 7th Street. Local artist and garden member Rich Garr is facilitating the curation. Additional artists
exhibiting include Jane Lavaud, who will be exhibiting and selling crocheted hats, zippered purses and
photography. Sandrine Gigon will be displaying etchings. The Open Space Gallery will also be on display
on the other side of the garden, near the barbeque and picnic table.
