I’ve had a lot of interest in Studio Visit Magazine as of late. Hopefully most of you have found your answers in some of my recent posts. So low and behold, I received an acceptance letter (and email!) from Studio Visit Magazine. My work was selected for inclusion in the Summer 2010 edition. So this will be Volume…10? Not sure, but I think there’s a Winter edition about to come out…then the Summer edition. The juror for this volume was Dina Deitsch, Assistant Curator of Contemporary Art, deCordova Sculpture Park + Museum in Lincoln, MA. For those who don’t know, Studio Visit is published by The Open Studios Press and is the sister publication to New American Paintings. It is a nationally conducted juried competition featuring 2D and 3D work. Oh, and in case you haven’t seen it- the painting that will be in the magazine is “The Wild West” which I’ve included a small image of here. There’s a closeup of it on my website www.AmyGuidry.com
Wow, seems I’m going to be on the eastern side of Louisiana yet again. I currently have a solo exhibit up at the Oak Street Gallery in Hammond, LA (which opens this Friday!) and now I will have a show in New Orleans coming up next month. Lots of driving is on my future agenda… I found out today that my work was selected for inclusion in “No Dead Artists,” which is a juried exhibition held annually at Jonathan Ferrara Gallery in New Orleans. Jurors for this year’s show were Miranda Lash, Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art at the New Orleans Museum of Art; Charles Whited, New Orleans, LA; and John Kemp, writer, ARTNews, Art & Antiquities, American Artist, Louisiana Life, and editor of LA Cultural Vistas.
Selected artists are: May Babcock, Mary Beyt, Gabrielle A. Chapin, Yvette Creel, Amy Guidry, Erin Haldrup, Stephen Hoskins, Eleanor Owen Kerr, Katie Knoeringer, Adam Mysock, Jonathan Pellitteri, Dan Rule, Paige Valente, Ryan Watkins-Hughes, and Sara White.
The exhibit will be on display from September 2nd- September 26th. The opening will be September 5th from 6-9pm. And for those of you in the Hammond area, don’t forget the opening reception for my New Realm exhibit will be from 6-10pm this Friday (August 21st) at the Oak Street Gallery. It will be held in conjunction with “Hot August Night” so parking will be limited. If you can’t make either show or if you just can’t wait, you can also view my work online at www.AmyGuidry.com
The latest volume of Studio Visit Magazine has arrived! I just got my copy the other day. It’s Volume 5, the Spring 2009 edition. My work was selected (again…yea!) for inclusion. My painting, “Adaptation,” from my “New Realm” series is featured.
The juror for the Spring 2009 issue was Michael Klein, an independent curator and private art dealer. He was the former Director of the International Sculpture Center and former Curator of the Microsoft Art Collection. Studio Visit is published by the Open Studios Press.
Studio Visit is the new sister publication to New American Paintings. In contrast to New American Paintings, Studio Visit Magazine is an internationally juried publication featuring 2-D and 3-D artwork. Featured jurors are internationally recognized professionals in the art industry.
My painting “Adaptation” was accepted for inclusion. (See photo on the top right.) It is from my “New Realm” series and is currently at Wally Workman Gallery in Austin, TX, which is one of my representing galleries.

As part of my recent attainment of representation by the Wally Workman Gallery in Austin, TX, my work will be featured in the upcoming edition of “Art Galleries & Artists of the South” Magazine.

If you’d like to see more of my work, aside from this blog, you can check out my online gallery at www.AmyGuidry.com. You can also find my work at www.WallyWorkmanGallery.com. To get monthly updates and show invitations, sign up for my newsletter under the contact page of my website.
Weird title for my post, right? It’s actually the title of an exhibition that my work will be in next month. I just got the great news this weekend. I submitted my work back in September and just hoped for the best. Apparently it worked… Anyway, the show is called Learn Promote Defend and is sponsored by the Center for Civil and Human Rights. That’s a mouthful, so I’ll go by CCHR for short. The CCHR is located in Atlanta, GA and is having the exhibition in conjunction with a 10-day program called 60 Years of Progress…10 Days of Recognition.
Learn Promote Defend will take place on December 10th at 7 pm at Mason Murer Fine Art in Atlanta. All three of my paintings (which is the max submission limit!) will be in the show. The jury selecting works consisted of Sylvie Fortin, Executive Director/Editor of Art Papers magazine; Christopher Hauck, Atlanta-based painter, installation and multi-media artist; Jodi Hauptman, Curator of Drawings of the Museum of Modern Art (MOMA), and Louise E. Shaw, Curator of the Global Health Museum, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
The paintings that I will be exhibiting are: Choices, Everything’s Coming Up Roses, and And Justice For All.Void Where Prohibited. These paintings are from my Beneath the Surface series. All three relate to different articles in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Some of them overlap and relate to more than one article, but all three had to relate to the UDHR in at least one article.
If you’d like to get a better look at these paintings (aside from attending the exhibit), you can also view them on my website www.AmyGuidry.com.
By the way, two of these paintings may look familiar to you… they were also featured on Juxtapoz Art and Culture’s website. You can find out more under the Press section of my website.
Well, I must be on a roll- I received another acceptance letter for Studio Visit Magazine! This will be the third installment in the new publication, due out early 2009. And this will be the third (!) time I’ve been featured in it. Maybe this is some type of delayed karmic action taking place decades after always being picked last for everything in P.E. class. I don’t know…but I like it.
The juror is Michael Klein. Mr. Klein was the curator of the Microsoft Collection and is now an independent curator and private dealer, and he was the director of the International Sculpture Center.
Another plus to being in this magazine is the fact that they send it out to thousands of people- galleries, museums, collectors, etc. Anyone who’s anyone is on their mailing list. So it’s always nice to know that these people will be perusing the magazine. Unless, of course, they just stick it under an unbalanced table leg or line their hamster cage with it. Again, I hope not.
So if this has piqued your interest in my work, you can see more on my website. www.AmyGuidry.com. And be on the lookout for me in Studio Visit…
