The LAVA Center at 324 Main St. will display a new art exhibit, “Viscera,” by local artist Gyuri Képes throughout August.
An opening reception will be held Saturday, Aug. 5, from noon to 3 p.m. The exhibit can also be viewed during gallery hours (Mondays and Wednesdays from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., Thursdays from 5 to 8 p.m. and Saturdays from noon to 3 p.m.) as well as during special events (see the events calendar on the website for details).
Screen printing, acrylic, graphite, digital illustration and collage are some of the mediums that Képes uses, often in combination and assembled onto a mix of materials such as paper, plywood, canvas, plastic and epoxy resin. Several designs were created more than a decade ago and were later refined, repurposed and superimposed.
Képes is a longtime resident of western Massachusetts and a graduate of the University of Massachusetts Amherst.
