CEPA Gallery is pleased to announce a new exhibition of works by Mark Lavatelli entitled TreeHistoric. Lavatelli will expand on his practice by presenting a site specific installation alongside a selection of his paintings made over the past 35 years.
Mark Lavatelli is a Buffalo-based painter who works primarily with an antiquated beeswax technique called encaustic. This technique is rarely utilized today, which makes Lavatelli’s paintings extremely unique. In addition to having exhibited in solo and group shows all over the United States, his work in this medium has won him many different awards, grants, and commissions.
An opening reception will take place Saturday, September 13th from 8-11pm. The exhibition will run through Sunday, October 26th, 2014. As always, our exhibitions are free and open to the public.
