RANGELEY — The Rangeley Friends of the Arts (RFA) and the Lakeside Contemporary Art Gallery will host an opening reception for their newest exhibition, “Rick Osterhout – Sculpture,” from 5:30 to 7 p.m. Friday, May 24, at the RFA Lakeside Theater’s gallery on Main Street.

Complimentary light appetizers and cash bar (beer/wine) will be available. The exhibit continues through July 1; the reception and exhibition are free and open to the public.

“Wall Whale” is one of the images included in “Rick Osterhout – Sculpture,” a new exhibit at the Lakeside Contemporary Art Gallery, on display through June 1.


Osterhout states, “My sculpture is multi-faceted and varied. All of it starts conceptually and some of it stays there, but throughout I want my work to be pleasing to the eye, well put together and have good composition.”

He passionately loves the natural world and tries to tread lightly on it. The materials he works with are often recycled, from trees he’s selectively cut, from one of the barns he’s saved from the landfill or rocks he has found. He also enjoys using his mind, hands and skills to creatively express thoughts or pay homage.

The gallery’s hours of operation are 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday through Friday.
