    New York's famous Greenwhich Village, traditionally a Nucleus for American creativity, was the appropriate setting on Saturday (9 September) for an open-air exhibition of work by a group of painters and sculptors.

    A well-known character around Greenwhich Village, eighty-year-old artist Mrs. Woo, has a prominent place for her work in the exhibition.
