On August 16 in the Central City Library named after M.L. Kropyvnytskyi a personal exhibition of book graphics "Sketches" by artist from Bashtanka, Alla Bondareva, was opened.
The exhibition included 17 paintings. The presented monochrome drawings were created for the design of books by Ukrainian writers, in order to maximally enhance the perception of poetic lines about bright moments of human life. Also the exhibition included works of painting on glass, which the artist became fond of not so long ago.
During the war, Alla Bondareva continued to work creatively, joined the volunteer activities of the Association "Art-Spokusa" and made illustrations for two books by I. Kozak, "Bridges of Love" and "Billberry Name Day".
