The historic Riva Yares Gallery is pleased to present the work of artist Rick Levinson. The exhibition, "A Collection", runs from February 16th to March 6th, 2019. The gallery, located at 3625 Bishop Lane in Scottsdale, will host an opening reception from noon to 4pm on February 16th.
Works on paper and large scale works on raw linen will be shown, as well as a light interactive metal, sculptural wall piece.
Shown internationally since the 1990's, this will be the first solo installation of Levinson's work in Arizona. Prior solo installations have included the Museo Nacional de la Estampa in Mexico City, Lehigh University Art Museum in Pennsylvania, the Yves Klein Archive in Paris, Gallery 44 and Galerie Splettstoesser in Kaarst, and the Luxe Gallery, Robert Miller Gallery, and Marc Straus Gallery in New York City.
"I am deeply honored to have the opportunity to be shown in this beautiful and distinguished setting," said Levinson, who works primarily from his studio in Tempe, Arizona. "I am eager to tell my stories."
Rick Levinson is an artist and a pulmonary/critical care physician. He has been a medical school faculty member at the University of Pennsylvania, and he has served as the medical director of the intensive care unit at the Honor Health Osborn Medical Center. His work often reflects these parallel, intense life journeys. The intensity and the nature of his medical career serve as origination points for his deeply personal works.
"I have often been asked whether I wanted to make a choice between my art career and my medical practice. In point of fact, I believe that my medical experience is the well from which I draw the water."
