Ho’olaule’a

“Hope” by Amy Guidry; Acrylic on canvas; 4″w x 6″h; SOLD; (c) Amy Guidry 2018

I was recently invited to create a piece for the upcoming “Ho’olaule’a” exhibition opening at Cactus Gallery in Los Angeles.  The exhibit celebrates endangered species (Ho’olaule’a is Hawaiian for celebration), and I chose to paint the Ethiopian wolf.  Ethiopian wolves are the only wolf found in Africa.  They are the rarest species of dog in the world and the rarest carnivore in Africa.  There are less than 450 left in the wild.  They live in close-knit packs of 3-13 adults, but unusually for wolves, they hunt alone.  One of their biggest threats comes from habitat loss due to agriculture.

The title of my painting is Hope and it is an acrylic on canvas, 4″ wide by 6″ high.  The human third eye refers to our connection with nature: the we see ourselves in animals as well as seeing the world through their eyes.  The rainbow is a symbol of hope, hence the title, and serves to inspire us all to keep working towards a better future for all of nature.

The “Ho’olaule’a” exhibition opens this Saturday, May 12th, 6-9pm and will remain up through June 2nd.  More details here: https://cactusgalleryla.com/.  For pre-sales, contact Sandra at sandra@cactusgalleryla.com.

This week is the last week of my exhibit at LeMieux Galleries in New Orleans.  My series, In Our Veins, is on view in the Main Gallery of LeMieux now through September 24th.  You can also catch Lee Deigaard’s series, Near and Far.

I’ve had some great response to this body of work, including a feature in American Art Collector Magazine’s September 2016 issue.  And Paul Bentley of the New Orleans magazine, Where Y’At, gave me a great review stating: “…Her dreamlike landscapes with animal, human, and natural forms mixing and dancing with each other create beautiful images that seem to be more than just a mere neo-surrealist tribute to Dali or O’Keefe.  Her paintings create a dialogue with her obvious predecessors and influences, but they retain an original, calming, eerie, and downright intelligent attitude to them.

More information on this exhibit can be found on LeMieux’s website.

Coming up this October, I will be showing as part of the “Apocalypse Now” exhibit at the Acadiana Center for the Arts in Lafayette, Louisiana.  The exhibit starts October 10th, with an opening reception that evening from 6-9pm (in conjunction with Second Saturday Artwalk).  The exhibit will remain up through January 6, 2016 so there will be plenty of time to check it out.

89.9 WWNO’s Inside the Arts program recently did an interview with curators Christy Wood and Jordan Blanton about the Ouroboros exhibit currently open at LeMieux Galleries in New Orleans.  Diane Mack conducts the interview in which they discuss several works from the exhibit (including mine) and the concept of the show itself.  You can listen to the interview online (about 15 minutes into the program is the Ouroboros interview): http://wwno.org/post/inside-arts-yotam-habers-torus-ouroboros-exhibit-celebrates-rebirth.
