“The action of applying paint to a surface, whatever the intended outcome, is enjoyable and addictive”
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 and collaged prints, emphasizing the beauty of tree structures, trunks, branches and the realities of environmental threats the trees encounter.
Building on a legacy since 1891, we embrace visual exploration as critical to the voice of our time.
