Here is a sneak preview of what I’ve been working on for the upcoming 2nd Annual Coaster Show at La Luz de Jesus Gallery in Los Angeles, CA. On the left is my sketch on the actual coaster after applying gesso and the sketches on the right are for other coasters. I’ll be posting more photos here soon. The Coaster Show takes place at La Luz de Jesus starting September 5th (with an opening reception from 8-11pm) through September 28th.
I’ve recently finished a new painting in my In Our Veins series and it has already found a new home. It was featured in my July newsletter which just came out the other day (see link below to receive a copy). The title is Clan and it is an acrylic on canvas, 6″ x 6.” View the painting online here: http://amyguidry.com/clan.html.
My new postcards are in! The painting featured on the front is Exposed, an acrylic on canvas, 8″ wide by 10″h (it is currently featured at Wally Workman Gallery in Austin- www.wallyworkmangallery.com/amy_guidry.lasso).

One of my paintings from the In Our Veins series has found a new home. Harmony is one of the more recent paintings from the series and is an acrylic on canvas, 6″ wide by 4″ high. There is currently one remaining 6″x4″ in the series, Resilient, which can be viewed here: http://amyguidry.com/resilient.html.
I recently received news that my work has been selected for the 2014 Art Melt to be held at Capitol Park Museum (formerly Louisiana State Museum) in Baton Rouge. Surprisingly, I think this may be the 10th time my work has been in the Art Melt (all but the very first). This year’s jurors are Ben Thompson, Curator at the Museum of Contemporary Art Jacksonville; Katie Pfohl, Curator at LSU Museum of Art; and Eric Robert Dallimore, co-owner of the Leon Gallery, Denver, Colorado.
The Preview Party will be held July 18th from 7-10pm. The official opening (free to the public) will be July 19th from 5-9pm.
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.
When it comes to hanging art on my wall, I personally like to just go with what looks right to me. Then again, I am an artist so that may be a little easier to do than for others. So with that in mind, I’ve found a few short, visual, and helpful articles online to give you some help on how to hang your art, where to hang it, how to arrange it with other art, and how to light it. The visuals alone are great ideas.
