Opening Receptions for Manjari Sharma and Amie LeGette

June 3 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm MDT


Manjari Sharma • Surface Tension
Amie LeGette • Shifting Pitch
June 6–July 15
Reception: Saturday, June 3, 6–8 pm

Richard Levy Gallery is pleased to present Surface Tension, an exhibition of photographs by Manjari Sharma. The exhibition features images of people swimming under water from above the pool’s surface. In the project room the gallery is showing new abstract landscapes by Amie LeGette.

Manjari Sharma investigates the relationship between figure and water in Surface Tension. In her images, bodies are broken apart by refracted light and the rippled surfaces of the pool. Legs become fins, limbs are elongated, and identities unknowable as figures morph into new forms. Born and raised in Mumbai, India, much of her practice is inspired by the cultural belief that water is holy.

Manjari Sharma’s projects have been featured in the New York Times, the Los Angeles Times, CNN World, NPR, Life Magazine, and Forbes India, among others. She has received numerous awards including the First Place Curator’s Choice award from CENTER in Santa Fe. In 2022, Sharma was a Pollock-Krasner Foundation grant nominee and had a solo exhibition at the Birmingham Museum of Art, Alabama which was extended to May of this year. Sharma currently lives and works in Los Angeles.

In the project room is Shifting Pitch, a selection of new atmospheric landscapes by Amie LeGette. LeGette layers painted silks and watercolors on paper. The translucent layers create ambient compositions that play with perception and depth of field and reflect the transience of the natural world. Amie LeGette’s work had been reviewed in Southwest Contemporary, Pasatiempo in the Santa Fe New Mexican, and Travel Portland, among others. LeGette received her MFA from the University of New Mexico in 2021. She lives and works in Santa Fe, NM.
