Given that it is September, I think just by the title alone everyone can surmise that I am a little late in posting this. Nevertheless, I wanted to share some photos from the closing reception of the 47th National Juried Exhibition- “The Summer Show” held by the St. Tammany Art Association at The Art House in Covington, LA. It was a really strong show, saw several pieces I’d like to own, and a nice turnout. The show was juried by Miranda Lash, Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art for the New Orleans Museum of Art.

I received some great news recently that my painting The Pack was selected for inclusion in the STAA 47th National Juried Exhibition- The Summer Show.

My portrait work will be featured in an invitational exhibit called “The Many Faces of Portraiture” opening this month. The show will be held in Covington at the Art House on N. Columbia Street, which also serves at the St. Tammany Art Association Building. For those of you who don’t know, you may want to bring your scuba gear when heading over to Louisiana, thanks to Hurricane Gustav. (Actually, it wasn’t that bad, but right now we are still getting major thunderstorms and tornado warnings.) Anyway, the show must go on!
The opening will be September 13th (yes, I have a lot of openings revolving around this date- see previous posts) from 6-9pm at the Art House. There are some other artists in the show which you may recognize from the New Orleans/Northshore area. They include Katherine Buchanan, Adrian Deckbar, Alan Flattmann, Peggy Hesse, Bernard Klichman, Isoko Onodera, Lyn Taylor, Alexander Stolin, Elise Toups, and of course, me! (If you haven’t figured it out by now, or are new to this blog- welcome!- I’m Amy Guidry). The show is curated by Robin Hamaker of the Brunner Gallery in Covington.
If you are in the area, feel free to stop by and see what should be a fantastic exhibit. If not, you can certainly view my entire body of work online at www.AmyGuidry.com.
I have completed several small paintings from my New Realm series. You can view the pieces at www.AmyGuidry.com under the 5” x 5” series.
The New Realm series will be featured at Henri & Odette (formerly Jennifer Marie Gallery) in Las Vegas, NV. The opening reception will be September 12th from 6-8pm. The gallery has moved to a larger location so the show was rescheduled to September. The exhibit will run through the end of October.
I will be exhibiting my work in “Ameri-Dreaming: Art & American Culture.” The show is scheduled for October 8- 31, 2008 in the Claypool-Young Art Gallery at Morehead State University in Morehead, KY.
I will also participate in “Circus Show and Other Atrocities” this coming September. My work will be featured among 60 other invited artists from the US, UK, and Canada. The show will be held at A Bitchin’ Space in Sacramento, CA.
In addition, my work has been selected for the Ohr National Challenge juried exhibition. The show will be on display at the Ohr-O’Keefe Museum of Art in Biloxi, MS from September 19th through November 10th.
Also, I have been invited to show in the Many Faces of Portraiture invitational exhibition. The show will open September 13th at the Art House in Covington, LA.
I have recently attained gallery representation in Austin, TX. The Wally Workman gallery will now represent me exclusively in the Austin area. Their website is www.wallyworkmangallery.com
My work has been selected for the fall edition of Studio Visit Magazine to be published this year. The juror was Carl Belz, Director Emeritus of The Rose Art Museum of Brandeis University. The magazine is scheduled to be available in October and is published by The Open Studios Press.
I am featured in Issue 8 of Indie Arts- The DVD Magazine as one of their four gallery artists. You can see more at www.IndieArtsDVD.com
Alas, MTV’s Real World Season 20 Hollywood has come to an end. If you missed the show, you can still see my painting “United Isolation” in photo stills from the show at www.amyguidry.com/press03.html. Video footage coming soon!
