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.
Progress shot of a new small painting I have in the works. This is a new addition to my In Our Veins series, part of the small works within the series. It is an acrylic on canvas, 4″ by 4.” The finished piece will be posted soon. In the meantime, the rest of the series can be viewed here: https://amyguidry.com/gallery.html.
While working on my pelican painting, I had another project come up. Here is a sneak peek of the work in progress- more will be revealed soon. It is an acrylic on canvas, 6″ wide by 6″ high. In the meantime, check out more paintings from this series here: https://amyguidry.com/gallery.html.
I’ve just added a new painting to my In Our Veins series. The title is Adpectus, which is Latin for vision, and it is an acrylic on canvas, 4″ wide by 4″ high. This piece continues with the theme of organs on the outside of the body as a reminder of our shared biology. It was featured in my April newsletter that went out yesterday, so it is already on its way to its new home in Israel. View the painting online here: https://amyguidry.com/adspectus.html.
On another note, there is a current special offer on Life Force. This piece is originally $200 and is now $150. It is an acrylic on canvas, 6″ wide by 4″ high. This offer expires May 14, 2017 (Mother’s Day). View the painting online here: https://amyguidry.com/life-force.html and mention this offer.
I’m happy to be able to announce that an interview I did with The Advocate is out now. Patricia Gannon wrote the feature discussing my current series, In Our Veins, and the message behind it. I’m going to quote myself right now, but I think it’s an important point to get across: “We’re capable of destruction but also absolutely amazing things. We can live in harmony in a responsible manner.” I create these paintings to provide a visual of what is going on with our planet, as well as what could be, as a reminder that we are all connected and should all do our part to preserve nature.

I’m happy to announce that my painting, Exposed, is featured on the cover of the latest issue of VEGAN Magazine out of the Netherlands. In addition, there is an interview featured along with more of my paintings inside. I’ve included images for those that can read Dutch.
Another painting in progress. Forced to take a break from my larger pelican painting courtesy of my easel. It decided to break (while in the middle of painting), so I am currently waiting on the replacement part to come in. So in the meantime, I decided to work on a small painting I’ve been wanting to do anyway. This piece is in keeping with my Cor and Corporis paintings, featuring rabbits with exposed organs or bones as a reminder that animals are all living, sentient beings. It is an acrylic on canvas, 4″ by 4.”
