Energy of Nature by Lara Chkhetiani at Tivoli Artist Co-op in May

TIVOLI—Barrytown resident, Lara Chkhetiani (pr: Chech-ee-ah-nee) of
the Republic of Georgia (formerly part of the Soviet Union) will be
exhibiting her abstract paintings in a one-woman show at the Tivoli
Artist Coop, Broadway, Tivoli, NY, May 4th through May 27th, 2007
with an opening reception Saturday, May 5th from 6-8pm.

The show, entitled Energy of Nature, showcases Chkhetiani’s innate
ability to manifest the life energy of nature in her abstract
images by using layers of paint, paper, and color to capture the
emotion and texture of nature.

Chkhetiani is an energy healer, trained in Moscow. Her unique
talent to channel energy and release it through her hands is an
inherent part of her painting. Her new body of work, which
includes large pieces (6’x 6’) fairly glows with her intensity.

For more information on the Tivoli Artists Coop or for directions,
call 845-758-4342 or visit Chkhetiani’s website at


Editor’s note: Photographs of Chkhetiani or her paintings are
available on her website. Lara is a good subject for a human
interest story and can be photographed in her studio in the quaint
hamlet of Barrytown, NY which is located on the Hudson River.
