I recently attended the opening reception for an exhibition I am in titled “The August Five.” The opening was held during Second Saturday Artwalk at Gallery 549 in downtown Lafayette, Louisiana. The exhibition is open now through September 6th.
I’ve been busy to the point of nearly forgetting to announce an exhibition opening I have this weekend. Hard to believe I forgot to write about it sooner since I’ve been prepping for it for quite some time. So here are the details: I will be showing several new works from my In Our Veins series at Gallery 549 in downtown Lafayette, LA as part of a group exhibition of local artists. The opening reception will be this Saturday, November 12th from 6-8pm and the show will be up through December 1st. Also of note, the opening this weekend is also in conjunction with Second Saturday Artwalk, so there are many galleries open late with some great exhibits. Speaking of which, here is a schedule of what to expect:

Main Gallery: Prospect.2– Ragnar Kjartanssn, Bruce Davenport Jr., Dawn Dedeaux, Willie Birch, Regina Scully, Jonathan Hicks and Tameka Norris

I thought I would share some photos from the opening I had the other night for the 6@549 show. The opening was a big hit at Gallery 549 during the Second Saturday Artwalk for March. The gallery was literally packed with people the entire time. Which is great, of course, but sometimes you can’t get a good view of the art when there’s such a large crowd. So, hopefully this will remind everyone to go by and see the show while it’s still up for the next couple of weeks.
More photos will be posted on my website soon, so check out www.AmyGuidry.com. And if you are in the area, be sure to check out the show. This is a great opportunity to see the work in person. Artists featured are myself (Amy Guidry), Deborah Norsworthy, Diane Pecnik, Lisa Ayres, Marie DesJardins, and Mary Attwood.
