Illinois native Mark Lavatelli has exhibited widely in Western New York for the past thirty years. Professor of Art at Medaille College, he is known for encaustic painting, often using images of trees. He has participated in numerous artist residencies and writes art criticism.
Mark’s artworks feature encaustic monotype prints of tree images cut out and layered on top of other prints, emphasizing trunk and branch structures. Also included are small collages made with cut out monotype fragments and one large four-part encaustic monotype incorporating words identifying environmental threats.
This exhibition is on view from April 19 to May 18.
