An opening reception for Pamela Jo Ellis: “Works on Paper,” is scheduled for 6-8 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 4, at the Lakeside Contemportary Gallery, located inside RFA Lakeside Theater, 2493 Main St. in Rangeley.

The free reception will include light appetizers and cash bar. The exhibit will continue through Sept. 15.

Ellis is an award-winning local artist working in watercolor, pastel and gouache for more than 40 years. Her traditional imagery includes small-scale, highly detailed images of local scenery in all seasons as well as realistic figure work of children being children under the summer sun. Ellis also is a dancer and dance instructor, and as such is a student of the human figure in movement.

This exhibit will premiere many recent works including experimental pieces of more immediacy which combine her interests in allegorical figures and in depicting flowing movement with influences including Maxfield Parrish, Tiepolo, and the firm belief that there is more to this physical world than what appears to the eye.

The show will be host by the Rangeley Friends of the Arts and the gallery. Gallery hours are 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday through Saturday, as well as when the theater is open for events.
