Elizabeth Hunter and Melissa Shea, fiber artists, will be featured in an exhibit May 24-June 26 at The RFA and the Lakeside Contemporary Art Gallery, 2493 Main St. in Rangeley. An artist’s reception will be held from 5 to 7 p.m. Thursday, May 24.

Hunter’s asymmetrical, one-of-a-kind rugs are often likened to abstract landscapes. She incorporates the traditional elements of Nordic design into her technically expert, finely crafted rugs. Hunter also will exhibit pillows in this show.

Inspired by her conservationist ideals, Shea’s baskets are original designs using organic materials and found objects. Repurposed to represent her vision of form meeting function, these works are skillful and elegant in their execution. Shea will be exhibiting a variety of her unique baskets.
