As mentioned earlier, I was invited to create a set of coasters for La Luz de Jesus Gallery’s 2nd Annual Coaster Show. My coasters are finished and currently at the gallery, awaiting the opening on September 5th. They are 4″ tondo coasters, acrylic on cardstock, and $100 each- top row from the left- Intertwined and Whole; bottom row from left- Union and Connected. The exhibit runs September 5-28, with an opening reception on the 5th from 8-11pm. In the meantime, view the coasters online here: http://amyguidry.com/coaster.html.
Here is a sneak preview of what I’ve been working on for the upcoming 2nd Annual Coaster Show at La Luz de Jesus Gallery in Los Angeles, CA. On the left is my sketch on the actual coaster after applying gesso and the sketches on the right are for other coasters. I’ll be posting more photos here soon. The Coaster Show takes place at La Luz de Jesus starting September 5th (with an opening reception from 8-11pm) through September 28th.
More good press this week- I had a nice surprise this morning when I discovered my painting for “The Great West Coast Migration” traveling exhibit is featured on Hi-Fructose. Over 100 artists have come together to support PangeaSeed’s conservation and preservation efforts for sharks and oceans in Japan and beyond. The exhibit will travel to galleries along the West Coast starting this Friday (the 13th- eek!) at Roq la Rue in Seattle. For the tour schedule and to check out some of the featured works (including my own!) visit this direct link: http://hifructose.com/2012/07/04/the-great-west-coast-migration-pangeaseed-benefit-art-tour/.
I have recently been invited to participate in The Great West Coast Migration, a touring art exhibition, organized by PangeaSeed in an effort to benefit sharks and oceans in Japan and beyond. According to PangeaSeed, “We are very excited to showcase a robust fund-raising art collection featuring works contributed by more than 100 internationally renowned artists, graphic designers, filmmakers and photographers. Almost all of our globally-based artist friends will be premiering their works for the first time ever in the United States. Also a percentage of the proceeds from the summer exhibitions will also help in aiding the startup of PangeaSeed’s inaugural west coast chapter whose mission and efforts will help further fundraising to keep sharks afloat on the west coast and around the world.”

I’ll be posting my finished piece for the exhibit here (and the links below) so be on the lookout.
I have two shows coming up, well, one is this weekend (!!) and the other will be next month. I was delighted to know that my work was selected for The Black Plague exhibit at The Congregation Gallery in Los Angeles, CA. There is a rather impressive line-up of artists including Chris Peters, Buddy Nestor, and Karl Persson. The show opens this Saturday, July 24th at The Congregation Gallery from 9-12pm.
Next month’s show will be at the Alexandria Museum of Art. I submitted for their 23rd September Competition and just received the good news yesterday. The juror for this year’s event is Kelli Scott Kelley. Ms. Kelley is an accomplished artist (I’m a fan of hers, so I really wanted to enter this show!) and a professor at LSU, Louisiana State University. There will be an opening reception and juror’s talk on August 27th from 6:30-8:30pm. The exhibit will be up through October 2nd.
