In celebration of our 25th anniversary, Richard Levy Gallery is pleased to present Unstructured Merriment, a group show that highlights the gallery’s distinctive history. In the1970s Richard Levy moved to Albuquerque and studied the history of photography with Beaumont Newhall at the University of New Mexico. An avid collector and purveyor, Levy had an antique store in Nob Hill that sold old photographs, vintage postcards, and silkscreen posters, among other things. In 1991 he opened the gallery at 514 Central Avenue SW and co-founded 21 Steps Editions, which produced waterless lithographs by leading contemporary artists. Showing work by local, national, and international artists, Richard Levy has created one of the top contemporary galleries in New Mexico. With a wide variety of mediums, Unstructured Merriment includes works by John Baldessari, Jeff Kellar, Sol LeWitt and Sachiko Cho, Ed Ruscha and Albuquerque artists Thomas Barrow, Beau Carey, Jenna Kuiper, Leigh Anne Langwell, Earl McBride, Emi Ozawa, Mary Tsiongas, and Tom Waldron. Ephemera that Levy has collected throughout the years will be on display, as well as his handmade hooked rug of the Albuquerque Isotopes baseball stadium. As a silver anniversary gift to our friends and community, we are hosting a 25th anniversary celebration and fundraiser to benefit We Are This City (WATC), an organization that supports local artists and Albuquerque community art projects.
