The “Feast” exhibit is currently on display at Wally Workman Gallery in Austin, TX. My painting, “Food or Pet? How Do You Decide?” is featured in the window of the gallery and was used as the image for the show. It was also selected for the upcoming event, “Edible Austin,” in which chefs will create their culinary interpretations of my painting. I hope they realize you can do a lot with tofu…
I was at the opening reception last weekend and have a few photos to share. The entire album will be posted on my website soon (www.AmyGuidry.com), so be on the lookout.
On the upstairs level of the gallery, various works by the gallery’s represented artists were also on display. I took the opportunity to pose with my painting, “Acceptance” from my New Realm series.
I’ve recently sold another painting from my New Realm series. This one is titled “Boarfish” and was recently on exhibit at Galerie Lafayette in Lafayette, LA. I wanted to spotlight this character from a larger piece I had done titled “Acceptance.” BTW, “Acceptance” is now at Wally Workman Gallery in Austin, TX, so if you’re in the area, you should stop by to see it in person. It’s definitely a conversation starter to say the least. And since many people ask, here’s something educational for you (see, you can actually LEARN things on my blog…you’ll thank me later when this comes up on Jeopardy). According to Wikipedia, Boarfish is the common name of two unrelated groups of fishes: All fish of the family Caproidae are called boarfish. Some fish of the family Pentacerotidae are called boarfish. For the record, I knew nothing of this when I came up with my paintings, I just like boars and fish a lot. So I combined the two to create a friendly “beast” for my surreal fairytale. And if you’d like to see more of this series, be sure to visit my website at www.AmyGuidry.com
