I’ve been away for a little while from my blog. Hopefully you’ve noticed. 😉 I’m working on a new body of work and am deeply involved in sketching out all the new ideas I have. Okay, so enough excuses. Here’s one new piece of information. If you haven’t read about it by now, my work has been featured in three volumes of Studio Visit Magazine. Studio Visit is the sister publication to New American Paintings and is published by The Open Studios Press. So now in addition to having my work in their publication, they have also featured me on their website. All past volumes of Studio Visit Magazine are now shown on the website and the winning artists from each issue are listed as well. In addition, those artists that have websites have a link to their site via StudioVisitMagazine.com. So if you’d like to check out the volumes that I’m in, go to www.studiovisitmagazine.com/volumes.html and click on an issue to see the artists. And if you’d like to view more of my work, be sure to check out my website at www.AmyGuidry.com.
My work is currently showing in the “Hope” exhibit at R. Coury Fine Art Gallery in Savage, MD as part of Pinkapalooza. This event benefits the Blossoms of Hope Foundation which helps families coping with cancer. Half of the proceeds are donated to the Blossoms of Hope Foundation.

The next edition of Studio Visit Magazine will feature my work in early 2009. My paintings were selected by Michael Klein, curator and private art dealer. He is also the former Director of the International Sculpture Center and former Curator of the Microsoft Collection. The magazine is scheduled for shipment April 15th, and should be in stores by April 30th.
I have been recently selected for the 2010 publication in Marquis Who’s Who in America. The next edition will be published in October of 2009.
Well it’s FINALLY here! Studio Visit Magazine arrived the other day. Apparently I was the last to receive a copy since mine got lost in the mail. (Hope my mail carrier is enjoying it…) So I just got my replacement copy. So here it is, I know you’ve been waiting forever. I know I have. My work is featured in Volume 3, the Fall 2008 issue. (Too bad I received it in 2009…)
As in the first issue, they split the accepted submissions into two volumes. Close to 1,000 entries were received and about 300 artists were accepted. And as with New American Paintings, the sister publication by The Open Studios Press, this is a juried competition. The juror was Carl Belz, Director Emeritus, The Rose Art Museum of Brandeis University. However, Studio Visit is an international competition, whereas New American Paintings is by region.
Both paintings I submitted were selected, so I have a two-page spread in this issue. Yea! They are from my New Realm series, which is my latest series. “Adaptation” is 48″ x 36″ and “Metamorphosis” is 40″ x 30.”
Both are currently at Wally Workman Gallery in Austin, TX. If you’d like to see larger images of these paintings, or the rest of my work, you can go to my website www.AmyGuidry.com.
My “New Realm” series will be featured at the Schepis Museum in Columbia, LA in the Spring of 2009. This will be a solo exhibit and will be on display as of March 3rd and will run through the end of April.
On December 10th, my work will be featured in the “Learn Promote Defend” exhibit and silent auction. The event is sponsored by the Center for Civil and Human Rights in conjunction with a 10-day program, “60 Years of Progress…10 Days of Recognition.” The exhibit will be held at Mason Murer Fine Art in Atlanta, GA.
As mentioned in previous blogs, I was asked to participate in “Twelve,” a group show of twelve artists represented by Wally Workman Gallery in Austin, TX. The show will open Saturday, December 6th, 2008 with an opening reception from 6-8pm.
Also at Wally Workman Gallery is the upcoming group exhibition, “Grand Affair.” I will also be showing as part of the represented artists. The exhibit will open in January 2009. More details soon.
I will be showing at Galerie Lafayette in Lafayette, LA for a second solo exhibit. My show in 2007 was a huge success, and now I will be showing my “New Realm” series there for the first time at that venue. The show is scheduled for the month of October in 2009. More details to follow.
As part of my recent attainment of representation by the Wally Workman Gallery in Austin, TX, my work will be featured in the upcoming edition of “Art Galleries & Artists of the South” Magazine.
My work was recently selected for the fall edition of “Studio Visit” Magazine. The juror was Carl Belz, Director Emeritus of The Rose Art Museum of Brandeis University. The magazine will be on newsstands later this month and is published by The Open Studios Press. The first copies are being sent to the publisher’s mailing list of national galleries and museums this week!
The winter edition of “Studio Visit” Magazine will also feature my work in early 2009. I was selected by Michael Klein, curator and private art dealer. He is also the former Director of the International Sculpture Center and former Curator of the Microsoft Collection. I received notification yesterday that the magazine is slated to be out mid-March of 2009. So be on the lookout.
If you’d like to see more of my work, aside from this blog, you can check out my online gallery at www.AmyGuidry.com. You can also find my work at www.WallyWorkmanGallery.com. To get monthly updates and show invitations, sign up for my newsletter under the contact page of my website.
Well, I must be on a roll- I received another acceptance letter for Studio Visit Magazine! This will be the third installment in the new publication, due out early 2009. And this will be the third (!) time I’ve been featured in it. Maybe this is some type of delayed karmic action taking place decades after always being picked last for everything in P.E. class. I don’t know…but I like it.
The juror is Michael Klein. Mr. Klein was the curator of the Microsoft Collection and is now an independent curator and private dealer, and he was the director of the International Sculpture Center.
Another plus to being in this magazine is the fact that they send it out to thousands of people- galleries, museums, collectors, etc. Anyone who’s anyone is on their mailing list. So it’s always nice to know that these people will be perusing the magazine. Unless, of course, they just stick it under an unbalanced table leg or line their hamster cage with it. Again, I hope not.
So if this has piqued your interest in my work, you can see more on my website. www.AmyGuidry.com. And be on the lookout for me in Studio Visit…
I have completed my newest painting “Wisdom” from my New Realm series. You can view the piece at http://www.amyguidry.com/wisdom.html.
I have been invited to exhibit 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.
My painting “Cedric” is now in the permanent collection of the Zigler Art Museum in Jennings, LA. “Cedric” is part of the Louisiana artists collection, which will be a traveling collection, and includes work by renowned artists Clementine Hunter and William Tolliver. The piece is from my portrait series and features local Grammy-nominated musician Cedric Watson.
I was also selected for inclusion in the Art Melt 2008. The juror is Sean Ulmer, curator of the Cedar Rapids Museum of Art. The show will be held from July 11- July 22nd at the Brunner Gallery in the Shaw Center for the Arts in Baton Rouge, LA. The opening reception will be held Friday, July 11th from 6:30 to 10pm.
Be sure to check out my piece in the Southern Open Juried Exhibit at the Acadiana Center for the Arts in downtown Lafayette, LA. “Anti-Aging” was selected by juror Peter Frank, an art critic and art historian, who frequently writes for LA Weekly. My work was one of 105 selected from over 770 entries across five Gulf states. You can view photos from the opening reception at http://AmyGuidry.com/slideshow.htm
My New Realm series will be featured at the Jennifer Marie Gallery in Las Vegas, NV. The solo exhibition will be on display this coming September. The opening reception will be Friday, September 12th, from 6-8pm.
My work is featured in Volume I of the premier issue of Studio Visit Magazine. Photos of my selected paintings and information about the publication can be seen under the Press section of the Amy’s website.
In addition, my work was selected for the fall edition of Studio Visit Magazine to be published this year as well. The juror was Carl Belz, Director Emeritus of The Rose Art Museum of Brandeis University.
I have recently been selected for inclusion in Marquis Who’s Who of American Women. My biographical information has also been updated in Marquis Whos’ Who in the World for the upcoming 26th edition.
Issue 8 of Indie Arts- The DVD Magazine features me as one of their four gallery artists. You can see more at http://www.IndieArtsDVD.com.
If you’ve been watching MTV’s Real World Season 20 Hollywood, you’ve probably noticed my work in the background. My painting “United Isolation” can be seen outside the “telephone room” where the houseguests make their scandalous calls. And take a look at the bathroom mirror reflection because you’ll see it in there as well. You can view new photos from the show at http://www.AmyGuidry.com/press.htm
The premier issue of Studio Visit Magazine has arrived…finally! After a three month delay, the copies I had pre-ordered arrived on my doorstep. My paintings “Out For a Run” and “Girl on Campus” were selected by juror Michael Lash, former director of the public art program for the City of Chicago. As I had stated a few posts ago, this is the first issue of Studio Visit, a new magazine produced by The Open Studios Press of New American Paintings fame. This time the competition was held across the country, not by region, and the work could be 2-D or 3-D, as opposed to ‘NAP’s’ 2-D-work-only policy.
I have yet to venture out to the bookstore, but Studio Visit should be on the magazine racks by now. There are two volumes since they decided not to make one super-huge issue. I think splitting it in two is good for those with a short attention span anyway. I am featured in Volume I (see photos above). What’s nice is they are in a large paperback format, so it’s not so much a magazine as a good quality paperback. Overall I was impressed with the work featured. Of course there were a few I had to scratch my head over, but that’s to be expected. In general, I think this is a great start for a new publication. And might I also add that this is being sent out to their prestigious list of galleries, museums, and collectors.
I had also contacted one of the writers for the Times of Acadiana about this boon to our local art community. Ashley Flanagan wrote a great piece concerning Studio Visit and the five Acadiana artists featured. You can read it online at http://www.timesofacadiana.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20080430/NEWS01/804300307/1002/NEWS01. I will also be posting photos online from my spread in Studio Visit on my website www.AmyGuidry.com so be sure to look for those soon.
