Opening Reception June 5th, 5-8pm; Partial proceeds to benefit TAPAS program in Asheville Schools and is open to the public.

Mark’s paintings are a synthesis of color, line, texture and form. He applies multiple layers of oil paint mixed with cold wax medium, then cut, scratch and smooth with great energy to let the painting evolve into an abstract interpretation of these elements. He paints in his open studio/gallery on the second floor of the Wedge Studios in the River Arts District.mark Bettis

Part of the proceeds from sales during the exhibit will benefit TAPAS (Teaching Artists Presenting in Asheville Schools), a collaboration between the Asheville City Schools Foundation, LEAF in Streets and Schools, and The University of North Carolina, Asheville’s Craft Studies program. TAPAS connects students with practicing local poets, dancers, potters, and visual artists to be inspired, and touched by opportunities to learn about and create art.

And don’t forget to wish him a Happy Birthday. Cheers! Troy
