549 in April

"Synergy" by Amy Guidry, acrylic on canvas, 8" x 10", (c) Amy Guidry 2011 If you live in Lafayette, Louisiana, or even in the Acadiana area, you are probably familiar with Gallery 549. Gallery 549 is one of several gallery hot-spots during Artwalk in downtown Lafayette, and one of my personal favorites to visit. So I’m happy to say that I will be showing there next month as part of the annual Spring group exhibition. I’ll be showing works from my “In Our Veins” series, all new and not previously exhibited- so this will be their debut! If you are in the area, this is your chance to see my work in person. I show all over the country, so I really love it when I have the opportunity to show in a local venue so that friends and family can attend. The opening reception will be held during the Second Saturday Artwalk in April (which will be April 9th) from 6-8pm. Hope to see you there!

Oh, and for those of you who are out of area, you can visit my work virtually at www.AmyGuidry.com.

Party Pics

I wanted to share some photos from my night at the Forum for Equality exhibit.  The Lafayette chapter of the Forum for Equality held a group exhibition- “Fight for Your Rights” at The Alamo.  I was honored to be invited to participate for such a great cause.  The exhibit coincided with the Forum’s event to get the public involved in the fight for equal rights and support the LGBT community.  For more information on the Forum for Equality, visit their website at www.ForumforEquality.com.  There was a great turnout for the show, lots of support, and a lot of fun.  I have a few photos posted here but more can be found under the events section of my website at www.AmyGuidry.com.
