New Work:

I have completed several small paintings from my New Realm series. You can view the pieces at under the 5” x 5” series.


The New Realm series will be featured at Henri & Odette (formerly Jennifer Marie Gallery) in Las Vegas, NV. The opening reception will be September 12th from 6-8pm. The gallery has moved to a larger location so the show was rescheduled to September. The exhibit will run through the end of October.

I will be exhibiting 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.

In addition, my work has been selected for the Ohr National Challenge juried exhibition. The show will be on display at the Ohr-O’Keefe Museum of Art in Biloxi, MS from September 19th through November 10th.

Also, I have been invited to show in the Many Faces of Portraiture invitational exhibition. The show will open September 13th at the Art House in Covington, LA.


I have recently attained gallery representation in Austin, TX. The Wally Workman gallery will now represent me exclusively in the Austin area. Their website is

“Party Like it’s…2008?”

"Adaptation" by Amy Guidry; From the New Realm series. Copyright Amy Guidry 2008

I’m really not a party person, although I’m learning to get over that if I plan on furthering my art career. So tomorrow evening, I’m putting on my party dress and marching on over to the Art Melt Preview Party. The show doesn’t open until Friday, July 11th, so you’re welcome to join us then. The Art Melt is held at the Brunner Gallery in the Shaw Center for the Arts in downtown Baton Rouge, LA. (Yes, our capital, for all you geography nerds.) The show is a mixed media exhibit juried by Sean Ulmer, curator of the Cedar Rapids Museum of Art. Awards will be announced at the Preview Party.

The show consists of work by all Louisiana artists. Some are from my residence- Lafayette, most are from Baton Rouge, a couple from New Orleans, and a few from cities I’ve never heard of. (For the record, Acadiana consists of so many small cities that if you blink, you’ll miss them. Not to mention, I’m not originally from here, so cut me some slack.) I did have my own preview, minus the party, when I dropped off my painting, “Adaptation,” (it’s about time I mentioned the title) and observed some of the other works that were awaiting installation. There were some strong contenders there, I will say that. It would be nice to see more Lafayette artists in the show. This is the first time I have exhibited in the Art Melt, myself, so maybe it has yet to catch on over here.

So if you’re looking for a huge opening reception to attend, Friday night from 6:30 to 10, come to the Art Melt. And if you can’t see my work in person, you can always see it online at

Are You Up For “The Challenge?”

"Choices" by Amy Guidry; Copyright Amy Guidry 2008

I received some great news today- I was selected for inclusion in the George E. Ohr National Arts Challenge at the Ohr-O’Keefe Museum of Art! Two of my paintings were chosen, “Choices,” and “Food or Pet? How Do You Decide?” The juror for the show is artist Ron Pokrasso. The show will run from September 19th through November 10th at the Ohr-O’Keefe Museum in Biloxi, MS.

So who knows? Maybe my work will receive an award while it’s there. We won’t know until the awards ceremony at 7 pm on September 19th. I am hoping to attend the reception even though I will be at the opening of my New Realm exhibit in Vegas the week before. Whew. Yes, that’s a lot of traveling. But I’m up for it.
