RANGELY — The Rangeley Friends of the Arts is hosting an opening reception for an exhibit featuring the work of photographer Rex Holsapple, from 5 to 7 p.m. Wednesday, June 28, at the new Lakeside Contemporary Art Gallery, located in the lobby of the RFA Lakeside Theater, 2493 Main St.
 
The exhibit will be open to the public from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday through Thursday, as well as when the theater is open for events, through July 23.
 
Holsapple has been a student, teacher, manager of foreign exchange risk, chief investment officer and consultant. Through all of this, photography was a hobby. A few years ago, he realized that if he wanted his photographs to be good, he needed to spend more than one day a week on them. He now makes a full time commitment of emotional, intellectual, and physical energy to photography. He has studied privately with Paul Caponigro, and has attended workshops conducted by Ansel Adams and by John Sexton.
 
Holsapple has exhibited his work for the past six years, mostly at juried art festivals in the northeast United States. Nine separate pieces of his photography have been recognized for outstanding work at these venues. Originally from Texas, Holsapple has been a resident of Mount Vernon, Maine, for 15 years.
 

“Rocks Near Shore, Holeb Pond, Maine,” – Silver Gelatin Print – will be one of the haunting images on display during the exhibit of Rex Holsapple, photographer, at the Lakeside Contemporary Art Gallery, June 28 to July 23. An opening reception for the artist will be held on June 28 from 5 to 7 p.m., at the gallery located in the lobby of the RFA Lakeside Theater, 2493 Main St. in Rangeley.
