Embellished Moose Antler Auction
The RFA has commissioned local artists to transform mounted moose antlers into unique works of art as a fundraiser to support arts programming in Rangeley. The antlers will be revealed to the public during the first Opening of the Lakeside Contemporary Art Gallery on Saturday, May 27th from 5-7 PM in the Lobby of the RFA Lakeside Theater, 2493 Main Street in Rangeley, and will remain on display in the lobby through June 26. Shown here is a work in progress – the Starry Night antlers by Valerie Zapolsky.
The Rangeley Inn donated seven pairs of antlers to the RFA that have given to local artists to “embellish.” Not only painting, but carving, adding objects, mosaic embellishment, sculptural treatment of any kind… some still look like antlers and some have been transformed into something unique.
We plan to auction them off this summer in an on-line format. There will be minimum bids and perhaps “Buy it now!” amounts. We will promote the Auction/Fundraiser on Facebook, on our website and other publicity outlets. More information will be available about the auction after the antlers have been received from the artists.
