Quick post today: As you may know, the Hilliard Museum exhibit that I will be in opens on the evening of the 14th. There is a press release online which gives a bit more information about the artists and the show itself which I thought everyone might enjoy. You can read the article at: http://museum.louisiana.edu/news/Louisiana-Voices-Six-Artists-Speak-to-Us. The exhibition runs September 15th through December 8th at the Paul & Lulu Hilliard University Art Museum in Lafayette, LA.
This weekend’s 2nd Saturday Artwalk for the month of September (Saturday, Sept. 11th) honors Elemore Morgan, Jr. The State of Louisiana has declared September 18th, Elemore Morgan, Jr. Day and will be commemorating this special designation with grants awarded by the Elemore Morgan, Jr. Visual Arts Endowment and a special reception during the Fall Fest event on September 11th’s Artwalk.

As promised, here is my second post for the day. I was recently at the Wally Workman Gallery 30th Anniversary exhibit opening. It was packed, to say the least. Luckily, there were a few moments to get some photos (you pretty much have to wait until the crowd clears and then jump in with the camera). So here are a few photos for those of you that couldn’t make it. (Though there is still ample time since the exhibit is up through September 4th.) Actually, I would recommend that anyone at the opening come back for a second look. It is very difficult to get a good view of the art when it’s that crowded. One woman told me she felt claustrophobic! All in all, great show and should not be missed.
Oh, and for more photos from the 30th Anniversary exhibit, check out Michael Barnes’s post on Austin360.com. I am featured in one of the photos from the opening- here is the direct link- www.Austin360.com. And to view more of my work, visit www.AmyGuidry.com.
The book that I recently blogged about, “Dimensions of Disclosure,” will be available on Amazon in early September! Yea! The initial printings will go to galleries. I should be receiving my copy soon and will post photos on my website, etc. So be on the lookout.
If you are not already familiar, “Dimensions of Disclosure” is an art book featuring self-portraiture from artists around the country. It’s published by New Art Review and edited by K. Augustine. My painting, “Adaptation,” will be included, in addition to my bio and contact information, in a full-page layout. “Adaptation” is from my New Realm series and is currently at Wally Workman Gallery in Austin, TX.
Artists included are: Laura Abramson, Kathy Augustine, Joanna Bavero, Bobbi Bennett, Benita Brewer, Carrie A. S. Caldwell, Ryan Carr, Jan Cheney, Stephanie Dana, Michael Diven, Viviana Florea, Amy Guidry, Robert Hacunda, Kathy Iwanowski, Case Jernigan, Ileana M. Johnson, Brooke LaBrie, Lacresha A. Lincoln, Ron E A Powell (REAP13), Jeanna Ragsdale, Laurie T. Seamons, Lauren Sudbrink, Andrew Toth, Kathleen Tumey, Paula Visnoski, Peter Wallis, and Patrick Wise.
If you’d like to see more of my work, be sure to visit my website at www.AmyGuidry.com. In addition to my paintings, you’ll find photos from exhibits, press information, and a signup page for my email newsletter.
Okay, that was a play on V for Vendetta… I’m running out of catchy titles. Anyway, you should remember the 13th of September, this Saturday, because it’s the opening of my New Realm solo exhibit at Henri & Odette! This will be the debut of my series in Las Vegas! So if you live in Vegas, are going to Vegas, or know anyone in Vegas, be sure to check out my show. This work has had a lot of buzz, so come see what it’s all about.
The opening reception is from 6-8pm at Henri & Odette on the 13th. The show will be on display through October 22nd, so if you can’t make it (and why not?) you can still catch the show later. The gallery is located at 124 South Sixth Street, Suite 130, in Las Vegas, Nevada of course.
