Leaving Las Vegas

"Wisdom" by Amy Guidry; Copyright Amy Guidry 2008.

Well, not quite. But it will be soon. My solo exhibition at Henri & Odette in Las Vegas, NV will be ending on October 22nd. This means you have about a week to get your booty over there if you haven’t already. If you’ve ever wondered what my work looks like in person, this is your opportunity. I can’t stress enough how the web, despite its greatness, just doesn’t do artwork justice. Not mine, not anybody’s. Just as thumbing through an art history book is not the same as going to an art museum, neither is perusing the internet. You can stare at those pixels all you want, it’s just not the same. And there’s no gallery ambience to go with it, either.

You can view my show, New Realm, at Henri & Odette. It’s located on Carson Avenue between Las Vegas Boulevard and Sixth Street. In Las Vegas, of course. And if you’d like to see more of my work, go to www.AmyGuidry.com. While you’re there, you should sign up for my newsletter (see contact page) to get the latest details on my upcoming shows, new work, etc.

Tranquility

"Tranquility" by Amy Guidry; From the New Realm series. Copyright Amy Guidry 2008

I wanted to share for those of you with bated breath (haha), my latest painting.  It’s titled…yes, you guessed it…”Tranquility.”  This is another large piece, 30 inches across and 40 inches high, from my New Realm series.  I had planned on finishing it sooner, but with two hurricanes coming through, my plans were thwarted a bit.  Probably an appropriate piece to be working on at that time since I could have used some tranquility myself, or a tranquilizer, whichever.  Anyway, here it is! 

One of the things I enjoyed about doing this painting were all the details.  Sounds crazy, but I am drawn to patterns.  All patterns.  Whether paisley or geometric, I have a penchant for them.  So you can imagine how delighted I was to paint the patterns on the butterflies.  In addition, the lace detailing on the blouse, which is a popular item in many paintings from this series, was also fun.  What I really love is how the patterns all play off each other.  The subject, the heroine of story, is as decorated as the butterfly wings are.

As a reminder, the remaining pieces from this series, or at least most of them, can be seen at my solo exhibition, New Realm, in Las Vegas.  The show is at Henri & Odette now through October 22nd.  And if you can’t make it to Vegas, you can view all of my work online at www.AmyGuidry.com

 

Remember, Remember, the 13th of September

Okay, that was a play on V for Vendetta…  I’m running out of catchy titles.  Anyway, you should remember the 13th of September, this Saturday, because it’s the opening of my New Realm solo exhibit at Henri & Odette!  This will be the debut of my series in Las Vegas!  So if you live in Vegas, are going to Vegas, or know anyone in Vegas, be sure to check out my show.  This work has had a lot of buzz, so come see what it’s all about.

The opening reception is from 6-8pm at Henri & Odette on the 13th.  The show will be on display through October 22nd, so if you can’t make it (and why not?) you can still catch the show later.  The gallery is located at 124 South Sixth Street, Suite 130, in Las Vegas, Nevada of course.

Viva Las Vegas!

"Beginning" by Amy Guidry; From the New Realm series. Copyright Amy Guidry 2008

For those of you who do not get my newsletter (Sign up at www.AmyGuidry.com), I thought I should mention my next solo exhibit. Yes, I have lots of shows coming up and in progress, actually, but this is the next solo. It will be in Las Vegas at the newly christened Henri & Odette. Originally the show was going to be at Jennifer Marie Gallery, but they are moving to a larger location and have changed their name in the process. The opening will be September 12th from 6-8pm. And yes, I will be there.

So if you’d like to take a trip out to Vegas, what better reason than to see my new show. And feel free to invite anyone you know in the area. I’ll be showing my New Realm series, so some of those you may have seen before, but there will also be new work in that series on display. And yes, I will have more of the smaller pieces that everyone loves because they’re so cute and collectible. Hee hee.

I’ll be posting more details about the show as they arise. Keep your eyes out for more information on shows in my newsletters.
