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.

A few photos of my current painting in progress. I have not decided on a title yet, but can say that it is an acrylic on canvas, 10″ wide by 20″ high. These are a few shots of the beginning stages taking it from a sketch on paper to the first few layers of paint, focusing on the sky.
I’ve recently finished two new paintings in my In Our Veins series. Encroach is an acrylic on canvas, 6″ by 6.” It serves as a subtle commentary on human intervention in nature while illustrating the connection of the natural world to all life. Reciprocal is the latest addition to the smaller series of paintings within In Our Veins. It is also an acrylic on canvas, 4″ by 4.” Reciprocal conveys the connection to nature by linking flora and fauna and uses the ribbon to continue the recent theme exploring anonymity versus connection.
As mentioned before, I will be showing as part of the “Menagerie” group exhibition at the Amelia Center Gallery at Gulf Coast State College. The show’s opening is just around the corner- this Friday, February 3rd, 5-7pm. I’m honored to be among such a great group of artists and their unique approach to animals in art.
The exhibit will be on display at at Gulf Coast State College in Panama City, Florida from February 3 – March 3, 2017. Artists featured are: Adam Doyle, Katherine Gallagher, Amy Guidry, Laurie Hogin, Gabriel Lovejoy, Chris Musina, and Kevin Taylor.
I’m happy to say that I’ve just finished Indispensable (the large painting of the horse). This piece has been in the works for a few months, granted I had a couple of projects pop up as I was invited to do them, but this is one of my larger paintings. It is an acrylic on canvas, 20″ wide by 10″ high. Indispensable connects a mountain landscape with a horse, representing the connection of all life while keeping with a recent theme exploring the question of anonymity versus connection. View it online here: https://amyguidry.com/indispensable.html.
I also finished a couple of small paintings I’d been wanting to do. Cor and Corporis (Latin for heart and body, respectively) are acrylic on canvas, 4″ x 4.” Both feature rabbits and are complimentary paintings that work as a pair or as individual pieces, both using ribbon to connect to either the ribcage or the heart. Seeing these organs and bones serves as a reminder of the biological similarities of all sentient beings. View them online here: https://amyguidry.com/corporis.html and here: https://amyguidry.com/cor.html.
I’m happy to announce that I was recently invited to participate in an upcoming exhibit at the Amelia Center Gallery at Gulf Coast State College in Panama City, Florida. The exhibition is titled “Menagerie” and it focuses on animals, covering a wide range of topics from environmental concerns, to societal constructs, to self-examination, to the pure celebration of nature. It will run from Feb. 3- March 3rd, 2017.
I will have work in the upcoming “Emerging to Established” group exhibition at Krause Gallery in New York, NY in January 2017. The exhibit opens January 7th, 2017 with a reception from 6-8pm and will remain up through January 31st.
Several of the small paintings from my In Our Veins series are now $100 for the month of December. There are a few 4″ x 4″ paintings still available as well, so I’ve included them in this group since they are also $100. This offer is available through December 31st, so there’s time for those looking to get something for the holidays or to get a piece they’ve been eyeing for their own walls.
