Yes, I know that titling this “Homecoming” conjures up thoughts of football and brightly colored taffeta. However, that’s not the type of homecoming I’m referring to. I’m exhibiting in the “Where Are They Now” exhibit at the Slidell Cultural Center at City Hall in Slidell, Louisiana. I was a student in the Talented Art Program during my junior high and high school days in St. Tammany Parish, so as an arts professional, I have been invited back to take part of their exhibit. The Times Picayune recently posted an article about the show, featuring one of my paintings- the direct link – www.nola.com. (Though it was too late to correct this for the papers, my work was featured on MTV’s Real World: Hollywood, not New Orleans.) Opening night will be this Friday- August 27th from 7-9pm. The exhibit will remain up through September 25th at City Hall.
I also found out that the Slidell Commission on the Arts has selected my work to be featured in a solo exhibition in the 2011-2012 cultural season. The exhibit will take place at the Slidell Cultural Center at City Hall. I’ll be sure to post more details closer to time. More information regarding shows can be found at www.AmyGuidry.com.
