Face to Face

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.

Opening / New Work

“Sentience” by Amy Guidry; Acrylic on canvas; 6″ x 6″; (c) Amy Guidry 2017

I’ve just finished both paintings previously featured while in progress.  Pervasive and Sentience will 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’ve made some more progress on my latest painting.  I’m in the home stretch on this one.  At 10″ wide by 20″ high, this is a large size given all the detail work (and that yet to be done!).  It’s coming along slowly but surely.  This is a close-up of one of the pelicans I recently finished.  I’ll be revealing the entire finished piece soon.

Apocalypse Now

“Apocalypse Now- Amy Guidry’s Art Speaks of Her Fears for the Planet” by Patricia Gannon, The Advocate, April 2017

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.  Read the interview here: http://www.theadvocate.com/acadiana/entertainment_life/patricia_gannon/article_f57aa1b8-0f15-11e7-8675-3f9ca702e2f4.html.
