89.9 WWNO’s Inside the Arts program recently did an interview with curators Christy Wood and Jordan Blanton about the Ouroboros exhibit currently open at LeMieux Galleries in New Orleans. Diane Mack conducts the interview in which they discuss several works from the exhibit (including mine) and the concept of the show itself. You can listen to the interview online (about 15 minutes into the program is the Ouroboros interview): http://wwno.org/post/inside-arts-yotam-habers-torus-ouroboros-exhibit-celebrates-rebirth.
I’ve made a lot of progress on my latest painting in the In Our Veins series. You may recall seeing the very early stages of this painting from a previous post. The horses are now finished and I am currently building the layers of the landscape, adding fine detail work along the way. The size is 20″ wide by 10″ high, acrylic on canvas. I’ll post the finished painting as soon as it is complete, in the meantime, check out the series it comes from here: http://amyguidry.com/wild_west.html and here: http://amyguidry.com/wolfpack.html.
I have two shows coming up- one in New York and one in New Orleans. “(Ouroboros)” is a group exhibition opening at LeMieux Galleries in New Orleans, June 6th through July 25th. The other exhibit is called “Reinventing the Helm” and will open at Sara Nightingale Gallery in the Hamptons, June 6th through August 3rd.
“(Ouroboros)” opens with a reception on June 6th, 6-9pm, in conjunction with the Julia Street Artwalk in New Orleans. “Reinventing the Helm” opens June 6th as well, 6-8pm.
I am honored and excited to announce that my painting Passage has been selected for the cover of the latest book of poetry by Larissa Szporluk. The book is titled “Startle Pattern” and is now currently in print and available online here: http://sites.ewu.edu/wseditions/recent-publications/.
I have a new painting currently in progress. These are a couple of photos of the sketch on canvas and the beginning stages of painting. The size is 20 inches wide by 10 inches high, acrylic on canvas. More photos to be posted soon. In the meantime, the series this piece comes from can be viewed here: http://amyguidry.com/wild_west.html and here: http://amyguidry.com/wolfpack.html.

The second painting is titled Veil, also an acrylic on canvas, 6″ by 6.” View the paintings online here http://amyguidry.com/expatriate.html and here http://amyguidry.com/veil.html.
Something you may not know about me:
I like to work in my studio alone. It helps me focus, especially when I’m working on a more challenging aspect of a painting. I do have “roommates,” though, and occasionally a cat will be asleep on my lap while I paint. These moments are short, as cats tend to change their sleeping areas throughout the day, but has become an almost daily occurrence. So this is a photo from my vantage point behind the easel.
