Best of Show

"Symbiotic" by Amy Guidry; acrylic on canvas; 11"w x 14"h; (c) Amy Guidry 2010

I had a nice surprise this weekend when I found out my painting Symbiotic received “Best of Show” in the Surreal Salon IV.  As a result, Symbiotic will be featured in ads in future issues of both Juxtapoz and Hi-Fructose magazine as the winner of the Surreal Salon.  I was excited just to have been accepted into the exhibit since these types of competitions receive hundreds of entries from all over the country.  The fact that two of the paintings I entered were selected was big for me, so winning the Best of Show award is beyond words.  It means a lot, especially in such a subjective field, and if I were a writer perhaps I could better explain this, but those of you who are artists know what I mean.  If you have not seen the show, there is still time as it will be up through the 26th (Thursday!) at the Baton Rouge Gallery – Center for Contemporary Art in Baton Rouge, LA.  Both my paintings The Pack and Symbiotic are featured and can be found on my website at as well as in the online catalog of the entire show at
