World Amigurumi Exhibition
Now through Saturday, February 28, 2015
RESOBOX Gallery – 41-26 27th Street, Long Island City
Amigurumi is the Japanese art of crocheting or knitting stuffed toys, and thousands of such creatures have filled RESOBOX Gallery in Long Island City.
Four thousand amigurumi from more than 140 artists in 32 countries are on display. This is a unique exhibition in that it’s not highlighting an individual artist, but a concept. The concept, amigurumi, is a culture that began in Japan, but is now cherished by crocheters and knitters all over the world. RESOBOX Gallery was so inspired by the amount of amigurumi artists out there that they decided to embark on a journey to create an exhibition showcasing the united, global love of this cute craft.
As an added bonus, all of these wonderful handmade amigurumi will be for sale! Great for Christmas, New Year’s, and Valentine’s Day gifts for all ages.
