I am honored and excited to announce that my painting Passage has been selected for the cover of the latest book of poetry by Larissa Szporluk. The book is titled “Startle Pattern” and is now currently in print and available online here: http://sites.ewu.edu/wseditions/recent-publications/.
If you’ve been following along, you probably know by now that I had an opening last weekend. I’m sure many of my blog readers were not in the vicinity of Hammond, LA… what are the odds, really? So, I’ve posted just a few photos from the show. (You can see more where that came from in my Events section on my website, so here’s the link: www.AmyGuidry.com/events.html.) There were a lot of people in attendance, especially since the opening was held during “Hot August Night,” which is an annual art & music festival. My painting, “Cocoon,” sold during opening night. The show received a highly positive response from those in attendance. I ran out of business cards before the night was over! Note to self: bring a backup stash of cards in a ziplock bag and cram into teeny tiny purse.
So if you haven’t seen the show and are in Louisiana, you can still check out my work! My New Realm series is on display at the Oak Street Gallery in Hammond, LA at 111 North Oak St. (go figure). And for a virtual show experience, go to my website at www.AmyGuidry.com.
Lots going on this week, so I am posting yet again. Making up for lost time, right? I have a new painting finished. It is from the New Realm series. It’s called “Renewal” and it is 48″ x 24.” This will be in my upcoming solo exhibition at the Schepis Museum in Columbia, LA.
The piece features the heroine of the series as well as the butterflies, albeit in their cocoon stage. One of the butterflies does break free from the cocoon. Dew drops are interspersed on the branch as well. The cocoons and the dew drops represent morning, or renewal, the start of a something new.
