This Saturday, June 4 from 6:30 - 8:30 pm - the 20th anniversary celebration! To commemorate our 20 years in Albuquerque, we are hosting a benefit auction of photographs from What I Saw, by Richard Levy. Proceeds benefit local arts non-profit 516 ARTS and Seed2Need -a great organization that provides fresh produce to local food pantries. Please join us for this event, celebrate 20 years of Richard Levy Gallery, and give back to our community!

Guests will also be treated to The Postcard Show, which includes hundreds of vintage postcards from Richard Levy's own collection (many of which came from his days on skates at the Silver Sunbeam). The exhibit spans from turn of the century to contemporary, including a large assortment from vintage Albuquerque, linen advertising, photographic, photo-manipulations, chromes, hand painted, airbrushed and countless other gems. Richard Levy began developing one of the most extensive postcard collections in the Southwest in the early 70's as postcard dealer and owner of The Silver Sunbeam. The Postcard Show is an experience that any New Mexico history fan or postcard aficionado won't want to miss!!
