Opening Reception: Pilgrimage is an exhibition of large-scale paintings by Albuquerque artist Beau Carey and a collaboration of poetry on glass by Santa Fe based artist Joanne Lefrak and Albuquerque poet Hakim Bellamy The artworks included in Pilgrimage are inspired by mountain ranges around the globe.

The gallery reception is Saturday, August 11 from 6:00 to 8:30 pm and includes a reading of poems from Prayer Flags by Hakim Bellamy at 7:00. Copies of Prayer Flags and collaborative limited edition screen prints produced onsite by T-Shirt Lab are available for sale during the reception. This event coincides with the opening reception for Puerto Rico: Defying Darkness next door at 516 ARTS.

Individual landscape paintings are often about specific places. Beau Carey’s new paintings comprise multiple geographies. He paints each invented landscape from memory, plein-air studies, and photographs. Mountain ranges from Norway, Alaska, and Colorado are compressed and layered into single compositions. Carey has traveled to remote areas including Denali National Park and the Arctic Circle to paint.

Joanne Lefrak and Hakim Bellamy traveled together to visit Nepal’s sacred sites and trek through the Himalayas. From this experience, Bellamy wrote a book of poetry entitled Prayer Flags about the pilgrimage, mountains, and people of Nepal. Lefrak selected excerpts from these poems and fused the text into glass by pressing glass powder through a silkscreen before firing in a kiln.

Carey’s work has been published on Blouin Artinfo, Artsy, Sotheby's, and He is an instructor in the Art Department at the The University of New Mexico — UNM.

Lefrak’s work has been exhibited at MASS MoCA, the Albuquerque Museum and the New Mexico Museum of Art, among others. She is the director of education and the curator of public practice at SITE Santa Fe.

Bellamy was Albuquerque’s Poet Laureate from 2012 to 2014 and is the newly appointed Deputy Director of Cultural Services. He is also a 2018 The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts Citizen Artist Fellow.
