Art Exhibition: Olga Chnara and Allie Bartlett

to March 13. Olga Chnara’s Abstract Art painting is distinguished for the shaping of the forms and the accentuated deformities, the dreamy atmosphere, the problematic area, the interior of the color and the completeness of the line. Despite her contacts with the achievements of several authors of Abstract Art, she manages to acquire a more personal expressive language.

Allie Bartlett works as a curatorial assistant at a local museum. She started shooting film after moving to Boston to attend art school at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts at Tufts. She develops her own film in her bathroom and is working on the darkroom she has set up in her apartment. Outside of the darkroom, Bartlett spends her free time beachcombing and hiking with her ever-growing collection of film cameras.
