I’m excited to announce that my work is featured in the new October issue of American Art Collector Magazine. The article is a preview of my upcoming exhibition with Jessica Goldfinch at Barrister’s Gallery in New Orleans this October. The show opens with a reception on October 11th, from 6-9pm in conjunction with the St. Claude Arts District Artwalk.
My work is currently featured on Romanian art site re:art. Editor Andreea Cazan writes, “The paintings of Louisiana-based artist Amy Guidry offer a powerful visual experience, revealing a mature and complex vision of what exists beyond physical reality, into the mind.” Read the feature online here: http://thereart.ro/amy-guidry-in-our-veins/.
