The Claire Oliver Gallery - Harlem, NYC: On the first day of Spring, I traveled to Harlem to check out the group exhibition, Love Letters for Harlem at the cozy gallery. The features by four Harlem-based photographers: John Pinderhughes, Ruben Natal-San Miguel, Jeffrey Henson Scales and Shawn Walker who capture the lives and culture of Harlem.

It's a small yet dense exhibit with a variety. John Pinderhughes represents Harlem with monotonous stills, Henson Scales focuses on a barbershop, Ruben Natal-San Miguel presents vivid women portraits while Shawn Walker delivers vibrant, multicolored, abstract works.

After leaving the gallery, I took a stroll through Harlem passing the amazing brownstones, window shopping across 135th Street and people watching down 125th Street. After living the quarantine life during a snowy February, I was in desperate need of some fresh air, warm weather and bright sun. So, if you are experiencing cabin fever and are looking for something to do, I highly recommend checking out this exhibit and then afterwards go shop and support some local Harlem businesses!
