Well, I received a copy a little late, but my New Realm series received mention in Art Business News magazine. The August issue featured photos and a blurb about my work featured at the Zigler Art Museum in Jennings, LA. The show has come and gone, but it’s nice to know it’s still getting some exposure. One of the photos features me with Troy Broussard, PR rep for the museum. The painting featured is “Release.” The other published photo is an installation shot of my work in the museum.
To see more of my work, in addition to the entire New Realm series, go to my website at www.AmyGuidry.com.
My New Realm solo exhibition opened September 13th at Henri & Odette (formerly Jennifer Marie Gallery) in Las Vegas, NV. The show has already received a great review in Las Vegas CityLife Magazine. The exhibition runs through October 22nd.
My work was recently selected for the juried competition, The Ohr National Challenge at The Ohr-O’Keefe Museum of Art in Biloxi, MS. The opening and awards announcements will be September 19th . The exhibit runs through November 10th.
Another exhibit that opened on September 13th is the Circus Show and Other Atrocities. I was invited among 100 artists across the US, Canada, and the UK to participate. My painting can be seen online at www.AmyGuidry.com. The show runs through October 11th at the Verge Gallery in Sacramento, CA.
Also open is the Many Faces of Portraiture invitational exhibition. The show opened September 13th at the Art House in Covington, LA and will run through September 30th. I was invited to show my portraits in addition to works by noted artists as Adrian Deckbar and Alan Flattmann.
I was asked to participate in “Twelve,” a group show of twelve artists represented by Wally Workman Gallery in Austin, TX. The show will open this coming December. More details to follow.

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.
My work has been selected for the fall edition of Studio Visit Magazine. The juror was Carl Belz, Director Emeritus of The Rose Art Museum of Brandeis University. The magazine is scheduled to be available in October and is published by The Open Studios Press.
The New Realm series also received mention in Art Business News. The magazine featured my works from my recent exhibit at the Zigler Art Museum in Jennings, LA. More details will be added to the website soon.
For those of you who read the newspaper, perhaps you saw the article in yesterday’s Daily Advertiser about my painting at the Zigler Museum. Herman Fuselier interviewed me last week about my “Cedric” painting which is now in the permanent collection of the Zigler Art Museum in Jennings, LA. Even if you didn’t catch the article, you can still read it in the virtual world at http://www.theadvertiser.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20080624/LIFESTYLE/806240306.
As mentioned in a previous blog, my painting is now part of the Louisiana collection of the Zigler. It is among other Louisiana artists, such as heavy-hitters Clementine Hunter and William Tolliver. The intention is for this expanding collection to travel to other museums and art institutions in the near future.
Given the fact that my painting is of Cedric Watson, a Grammy-nominated musician and a favorite of the locals in Acadiana, I thought it was the perfect fit for the Zigler’s collection. Not to mention the museum was pretty keen on it as well. In addition, Cedric and the rest of his group, The Pine Leaf Boys, are scheduled to play at a museum event later this fall.
Check out my painting on my website www.AmyGuidry.com. While you are there, you can see the rest of my portrait series in addition to the new work that I’ve been up to lately.
