I am excited to announce that a lecture on my work will be given by Dr. Lee Gray at the Hilliard Museum’s Hays Town Building. There will be an audience Q&A and reception afterward. The Paul and Lulu Hilliard University Art Museum is located in Lafayette, Louisiana. More details soon.

I wanted to share a few photos from the panel discussion the other day. Artists from the “Louisiana Voices: Six Artists Speak to Us” exhibition were invited to hold a panel discussion at the Paul & Lulu Hilliard University Art Museum. Five of the artists were present: Melissa Bonin, Linda Trappey Dautreuil, Troy Dugas, Amy Guidry, and Lisa Osborn. The exhibition is currently open at the Hilliard now through December 8th, so be sure to check it out while you are in Lafayette.
I still can’t get over the amazing turnout at the Hilliard Museum the other night. The opening reception for Louisiana Voices: Six Artists Speak to Us was this past Friday. The exhibit looks great and I will be going back just to finish looking at everything. It was so busy and packed that I did not get to check out all the art. I do have photos to share of the event opening and will be posting more to my website soon. The exhibit is up now through December 8th at the Paul & Lulu Hilliard University Art Museum in Lafayette, LA. Also of note: an exhibition panel discussion will be held on September 29th from 2-4pm.
Quick post today: As you may know, the Hilliard Museum exhibit that I will be in opens on the evening of the 14th. There is a press release online which gives a bit more information about the artists and the show itself which I thought everyone might enjoy. You can read the article at: http://museum.louisiana.edu/news/Louisiana-Voices-Six-Artists-Speak-to-Us. The exhibition runs September 15th through December 8th at the Paul & Lulu Hilliard University Art Museum in Lafayette, LA.
You may recall awhile back my mention of this upcoming exhibition. It has been scheduled for close to a year and now the opening is right around the corner! Louisiana Voices: Six Artists Speak to Us will be held at the Paul and Lulu Hilliard University Art Museum in Lafayette, LA as part of the Louisiana Bicentennial. A couple of artists have been added since that early post so the featured artists are Melissa Bonin, Linda Trappey Dautreuil, Troy Dugas, Amy Guidry, Lisa Osborn, and Marjorie Pierson. The exhibition will open September 15th with a reception the night before on September 14th from 6-8pm.
The exhibition will remain up through December 8th, so there will be plenty of opportunity to see the exhibit even if you miss the opening reception. I should mention there will also be an exhibition panel discussion on September 29th at 2pm. For more information about the exhibit visit: http://museum.louisiana.edu/exhibitions.
I have some exciting news to share even though this event is still a little ways away. I have been invited to be one of four featured artists during the Louisiana Bicentennial at the Paul and Lulu Hilliard University Art Museum. The exhibition is scheduled for the Fall of 2012 and will feature works by Melissa Bonin, Linda Trappey Dautreuil, Troy Dugas, and myself (Amy Guidry). As I mentioned, the exhibit will be during the Louisiana Bicentennial, which marks the 200th anniversary of Louisiana’s attainment of statehood as the 18th state in the Union, and is celebrated with events throughout the state. I will be posting more information closer to time- the exhibit will be held in Fall 2012 at the Hilliard Museum in Lafayette, LA.
