A painting from one of my earlier series, Beneath the Surface, has found a new home. This piece is titled Bon Appetit and is an acrylic on canvas, 30″ wide by 40″ high. Much of this series has sold but there are a few still available. View Bon Appetit and the remaining paintings online here: http://amyguidry.com/bon_appetit.html.

My work was recently selected for inclusion in The Fletcher Exhibit: Social and Politically Engaged Art to be held at the Tipton Gallery in Johnson City, Tennessee. The exhibit is run by East Tennessee State University in memory of one of their students, Fletcher Dyer, in an effort to continue and advance his endeavor for politically and socially motivated art. The juror is Michael Aurbach, an artist and professor of sculpture and drawing at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee. The exhibit runs November 1st through the 27th, with an opening reception on November 1st, from 6-8pm at Tipton Gallery.
Just found a new home for another painting! This piece is “And Justice for All. Void Where Prohibited.” I recently exhibited it in the Forum for Equality “Fight for Your Rights” exhibit at The Alamo in Lafayette, LA. It’s a large painting- 40 inches tall by 30 inches wide and an acrylic on canvas. I’ve included a couple of detail shots since a lot is lost in a small jpeg of such a big piece. Just click on the images for the full view. There are other paintings from this series that are available, so be sure to check them out on my website. Several series are featured in my gallery, but the direct link to this particular group is www.amyguidry.com/anti-aging.html.
Upon the start of the Surreal Salon exhibit at the Baton Rouge Gallery Center for Contemporary Art, my painting “Complacent” has sold. The exhibit will be up through the 28th of January, so if you haven’t seen this piece in person, now is your last chance. It’s fairly large- 48″ across by 24″ high, so there’s a lot that can’t be captured in a jpeg on the internet. This painting was an image that came to me, but I sketched it out and waited to use it later when the time was right. It fit perfectly with the social commentary series I was working on at that time.
Also of note, Robin Miller’s recent article in The Advocate (the Baton Rouge, LA newspaper) about the Surreal Salon. My painting was also featured with the article, so I was happy to find that out as well. You can read it under the Press Section of my website at http://www.amyguidry.com/press.html.
I’m going out with a bang this year… just when I thought it was calming down. Ha! I will have work in two upcoming exhibits- the opening reception for both is on the same night. First, I am one of the invited artists in the Wally Workman Gallery exhibition, “Feast.” The title of the show does not necessarily pertain to food, so feast is open to interpretation. There is a preview of the show on December 3rd, from 6-8pm as part of their First Thursday Artwalk. The actual opening reception will be December 5th, from 6-8pm. In addition, they are hosting FINE FOOD ART NIGHT on December 10th 6-8pm. Edible Austin magazine will also be there for an evening of fine food and fine art. Local food tastings provided by the Austin chapter of Les Dames de Escoffier and local catering companies will be creating their culinary interpretations of pieces from the show. A portion of the proceeds will go to Urban Roots, a youth development program that uses sustainable agriculture as a means to transform the lives of young people and to increase the access of healthy food in Austin.
In addition, I will be participating in an art auction during Le Feu et l’Eau Rural Arts Celebration. Also known as the Fire and Water Festival. The Fire and Water Festival has a “warmup” event on December 4th from 7-11pm. The schedule has not been announced yet, but I can tell you it will most certainly involve lots of live music and lots of food. The actual event and auction will take place on December 5th from 11am-11pm.
So if you’ll be in Austin, TX, be sure to check out Wally Workman’s exhibit. And if you’e in Arnaudville, LA, check out the Fire and Water Festival. And if you’re able to teleport, do both. And if you can’t make it to either one, there’s always www.AmyGuidry.com
As I wait for my brother to get me a few copies of the New Orleans Gambit, I checked it out online today knowing that the review of the 13th Annual NO DEAD ARTISTS would be there. I was happy to see that my work was mentioned first in addition to the fact that I was one of a handful of artists that were mentioned from the show. What a nice surprise! The review was written by D. Eric Bookhardt and titled “Triskaidekafolio.” I had no idea if that was even a word, so thanks to the internet I found out this was Mr. Bookhardt’s take on triskaidekaphobia, which is an irrational fear of the number 13. You can read the entire article online at http://bestofneworleans.com/gyrobase/Content?oid=oid%3A60495.
Be sure to visit the opening reception if you are in the New Orleans area this weekend! The show is at Jonathan Ferrara Gallery on Julia Street and will open from 6-9pm, Saturday, September 5th. But if you can’t make it and you’d like to see some of the work I have in this exhibit, including other series, visit my website at www.AmyGuidry.com.
