For Immediate Release

LaVere Media is pleased to announce an open house and artist reception for painter Lisa Waters at the LaVere Media Studio at 111 North Main Street in Elmira NY on Thursday, December 12 from 5PM to 9PM.

The reception is part of LaVere Media’s “Second Thursday” series, which seeks to promote local artists through exposure in a non-traditional venue. A selection of Ms. Waters’ works, curated by Rich LaVere and the artist, will be made available for public viewing during regular business hours during the months of December and January, and the first week of February.

“We’re thrilled to have an artist of Lisa’s caliber exhibiting here,” Rich LaVere, owner of LaVere Media, said. We’re excited to bring her work to the growing downtown community, and hope that people will take this opportunity to stop by and enjoy some exceptional artwork.

Tours will be given of the LaVere Media studio, and light snacks and refreshments will be served.

Lisa Michelle Waters embarked on her illustrious artistic journey at the tender age of 6 at St. Mary Our Mother School. It was there that she was often in the limelight (and Principals office) for drawing on desks, floors, and walls- much to the consternation of Sister Rita. At the insistence of Sister Matilda and Father O’Brien, she left Catholic school at the end of 1st grade, thus setting her on her journey, with Art and Religion the entwined snakes that would inform and taint all she touched.

As an adult, she studied painting, life, and the fine art of cigars and brandy under the tutelage of friends and mentors Thomas S. Buechner and Marty Poole. She has taught painting at 171 Cedar Arts Center, and her work has been displayed at West End Gallery, both in Corning NY.

Lisa is a native of Horseheads, works as a hair stylist, and holds a B.A. in Classical Studies from Elmira College. She “paints as God sees fit”.

LaVere Media is a full-service video and photography studio in the heart of Elmira NYs downtown business district. LaVere Media serves both consumers and businesses of all sizes in the Elmira, Horseheads, Corning Watkins Glen and Southern Tier Region of Upstate NY with quality, affordable photography and video production services, as well as a full range of video transfer services (film and video to DVD).
