The “Feast” exhibit is currently on display at Wally Workman Gallery in Austin, TX. My painting, “Food or Pet? How Do You Decide?” is featured in the window of the gallery and was used as the image for the show. It was also selected for the upcoming event, “Edible Austin,” in which chefs will create their culinary interpretations of my painting. I hope they realize you can do a lot with tofu…
I was at the opening reception last weekend and have a few photos to share. The entire album will be posted on my website soon (www.AmyGuidry.com), so be on the lookout.
On the upstairs level of the gallery, various works by the gallery’s represented artists were also on display. I took the opportunity to pose with my painting, “Acceptance” from my New Realm series.
I’m going out with a bang this year… just when I thought it was calming down. Ha! I will have work in two upcoming exhibits- the opening reception for both is on the same night. First, I am one of the invited artists in the Wally Workman Gallery exhibition, “Feast.” The title of the show does not necessarily pertain to food, so feast is open to interpretation. There is a preview of the show on December 3rd, from 6-8pm as part of their First Thursday Artwalk. The actual opening reception will be December 5th, from 6-8pm. In addition, they are hosting FINE FOOD ART NIGHT on December 10th 6-8pm. Edible Austin magazine will also be there for an evening of fine food and fine art. Local food tastings provided by the Austin chapter of Les Dames de Escoffier and local catering companies will be creating their culinary interpretations of pieces from the show. A portion of the proceeds will go to Urban Roots, a youth development program that uses sustainable agriculture as a means to transform the lives of young people and to increase the access of healthy food in Austin.
In addition, I will be participating in an art auction during Le Feu et l’Eau Rural Arts Celebration. Also known as the Fire and Water Festival. The Fire and Water Festival has a “warmup” event on December 4th from 7-11pm. The schedule has not been announced yet, but I can tell you it will most certainly involve lots of live music and lots of food. The actual event and auction will take place on December 5th from 11am-11pm.
So if you’ll be in Austin, TX, be sure to check out Wally Workman’s exhibit. And if you’e in Arnaudville, LA, check out the Fire and Water Festival. And if you’re able to teleport, do both. And if you can’t make it to either one, there’s always www.AmyGuidry.com
