Huntington artist Caitlyn Shea presented her self-portrait, ‘Elusive,’ a work in acrylic, spray paint and charcoal, before the opening of her show and gallery talk at Rivehead Free Library’s Elizabeth Overton Gallery last week.

In her talk, Ms. Shea discussed the challenges she faced after a fire at her home damaged some of her work. An art auction event for her benefit is planned for July 10. Her paintings will be on view at the library through July 24.

Ms. Shea was one of the artists who participated in the East End Arts’ JumpstART program last year and is a mentor in it this year.
