The Lakeside Contemporary Art Gallery, located in the lobby of the RFA Lakeside Theater, is open all summer, Mondays-Saturdays from 10 – 2, with a full roster of exhibits including artists Jud Pealer, Sonja Johnson, David Tibbetts, the Rangeley Angling Art Show and the Western Mountain Photography Show.

Movies and live theater are on hold until state restrictions are lifted. We have some creative people with ideas for live events that can be put together on short notice, such as a one-act play festival and a story-telling event, and our Indie Film Series and first-run movies will return as soon as the state allows.
