My painting The Pack will be on view starting tomorrow in Austin, Texas. It was selected to be a part of “Good Mourning Tis of Thee,” a conceptual group exhibition curated by Alyssa Taylor Wendt and Sean Gaulager. Funded by a generous grant from the city of Austin and the Cultural Arts Division, this exhibit will cover such themes as death and transformation, in which death is a catalyst for positive change. The show runs October 13th through November 2nd, 2017 at Co-Lab Projects’ DEMO Gallery in Austin, TX. There will be an opening reception tomorrow, October 13th from 7-11pm.
In anticipation of the exhibition I have coming up, I’m sharing my finished painting, Transformation.

In the meantime, view the painting online here: https://amyguidry.com/transformation.html. Email sales(at)wowxwow(dot)com with any inquiries.
I’m excited to announce that I’ve been invited to participate in the upcoming “Room of a Thousand Doors” exhibit being held by Wow X Wow. I’ve been working on a new painting for this show, taking it in a slightly different direction (inspired by the theme of many paths to take). The intense, dark leafy background is a new approach for me. This is a progress shot of my painting- I’ll be revealing more over the next couple of weeks. It’s an acrylic on canvas, 6″ x .6″ The exhibit will be held online via Wow X Wow, opening September 1st 7pm BST.

Progress shot of my painting for the upcoming Coaster Show 2017 at La Luz de Jesus Gallery in Los Angeles. Now that I can officially announce it, this will be one of the pieces I have in the exhibit.

These are a few photos from opening night for the “Face to Face” exhibition at LeMieux Galleries in New Orleans. Artists represented by the gallery as well as a few new artists have created their own interpretation of portraiture, ranging from the traditional to the abstract. The show is up now through July 29th, so there’s still time to see the exhibit.
I’ve just finished both paintings previously featured while in progress. Pervasive and Sentiencewill both be on exhibit for the opening at LeMieux Galleries in New Orleans tomorrow (June 3, 2017). Pervasive has been a long time in the making. I’m sometimes asked if living in Louisiana affects my work. Given that my work deals with the welfare of our planet, many of the issues that Louisiana faces (habitat loss, flooding, BP oil spill, hurricanes) are something that I cover but on more of a global scale. Pervasive is one of the most direct pieces I’ve done, focusing on the conservation of Louisiana wildlife and wetlands. The BP oil spill not only affected the wildlife of Louisiana, but it continues to affect the wildlife of rest of the world to this day as bird and sea animals continue to migrate. It may be asking a lot of a painting, but I hope that it has a big impact.
Sentience was specifically created for the “Face to Face” exhibit opening at LeMieux Galleries. The exhibit features a range of interpretations of portraiture. In Sentience, the butterflies represent the beauty and fragility of life, while the third eye represents enlightenment. The eye is a human eye, referring to the fact that we are all members of the animal kingdom, and can see a bit of ourselves in the personalities of other animals. Sentience is an acrylic on canvas, 6″wide by 6″high.
Both paintings will be on view tomorrow, June 3rd for the opening reception from 6-8pm. The exhibit will remain up through July 29th, 2017.

I’m excited to reveal my painting for the upcoming “Lover’s Eye” exhibit at Modern Eden Gallery in San Francisco, CA. I was invited to create a piece for this show as a modern take on the late 17th Century practice of painting the eye of a loved one to wear as jewelry.
