I will be participating in the LPB Art and Travel Auction, which supports Louisiana Public Broadcasting. I was asked to participate as a representing artist for the Oak Street Gallery in Hammond, LA. So I did a small piece, 6″ x 6″, wood-cradled panel, titled “Transcendence.” This piece is an extension of my New Realm series and features the red and black butterflies seen throughout the series. I also added some of the flowers and blue swirls seen in a few of the other paintings in New Realm.
Aside from being part of the live auction on LPB during primetime, my painting is included in an exhibition of all the art up for auction at the Louisiana State Museum in Baton Rouge. The exhibit will be on display through May 18th. On-air coverage will be during primetime on June 7th at 6pm. You can also bid online at http://auction.lpb.org/. Just look under Gallery 17 Oak Street and you’ll find my work listed there!

Well, I did not post anything last week given I was in Austin recently. I had planned a trip anyway, but while I was there I brought my work to Wally Workman Gallery. They are now representing me in Austin, TX. I’m thrilled because some of the artists I admire show there, and it’s just a nice space. So I’m in really good company, and happy to have my work in their venue. You can check out my work on their website at http://www.wallyworkmangallery.com/amy_guidry.lasso. In addition, my entire body of work can be seen on my website, www.AmyGuidry.com.
The painting featured in this post is titled “Wisdom.” This is one of the pieces currently at Wally Workman Gallery. It is one of the newest pieces from my New Realm series. The title is in reference to the wisdom that is gained from life experiences and journeys. The butterflies and feathers above the stag’s head symbolize thought and creativity. Hence the woman taking the butterfly, thus taking wisdom.
