In her current exhibition Double Takes she shows large, vivid oil paintings and the small studies that inspired them. You will see the dramatic way scale and composition alter the nature of the images, as work done in haste to capture a beam of sunlight or to survive the Montana winter is reconsidered in the warmth and deliberation of her studio. Levey's bold translations transform her impressions into a colorful window into a moment in her world.

Her impressionistic view of landscapes, buildings and figures come to life in those fleeting moments poured into her paintings, reflecting her experiences growing up in New York State and the Adirondack Mountains, as well as her current local landscapes and those she paints in Maine, Montana and Maryland.

The Foundry Gallery was established in 1971 by four students of well-known Washington, D.C. painter Gene Davis. With 23 current members at the Foundry, it represent the best and the brightest established and emerging artists in the Washington, D.C. area.
