The fordPROJECT gallery held an opening Tuesday night for “Form and Fancy,” a solo exhibition of Chinese ink paintings on paper by Russian-born artist Valentina Battler. The self taught painter—who is also a classically trained concert pianist—was on hand for the showing of the Asian-themed artworks, whose subjects varied from dueling beasts and Samurai warriors to tranquil landscapes and delicate figures.
