Press Release

Richard Levy Gallery is pleased to present Made in ABQ, a 30th–anniversary celebration that showcases artworks by gallery artists living and working in our city. Curated by Sallie Scheufler, this exhibition offers a sampling of the cutting–edge contemporary work being made in Albuquerque, where the gallery first opened its doors in 1991.

Made in ABQ includes a broad range of mediums and concepts that create a sense of place through local visual culture. Drawing attention to Albuquerque’s diverse ecology, Mary Tsiongas’s video illuminates the endangerment of silvery minnows, and Sean Hudson’s metaphysical router painting depicts cactus as an emblem for desert survival. Invented landscapes by Beau Carey, Jennifer Nehrbass, and Karsten Creightney provide their personal perspectives on the environment, while works by Mick Burson and Emi Ozawa explore play through elements of design. Powerful brushstrokes are central to abstract paintings by Raychael Stine and Earl McBrideSallie Scheufler’s staged portrait will have you staring into the eyes of the artist and her sisters. Mural artist Noé Barnett has made a colorful shaped painting with a message. You’ll have to figure out the message in Thomas Barrow’s experimental photograph. Made in ABQ is a celebration not only of our 30th anniversary but also of the vibrant and diverse art community in our city.

This exhibition is presented online and by appointment from June 2 to July 10.
