Due to shelter at home orders, I have a couple of online-only exhibitions going on at the moment. These three paintings have found new homes: Woven and Intricate are both part of LeMieux Galleries’ Petite LeMieux exhibition, and Arise is part of Krause Gallery’s charity art exhibition benefiting Meals on Wheels.
Three of my paintings are part of LeMieux Galleries’ Petite LeMieux online exhibition going on now through May 2nd. The exhibition on Artcloud consists of pieces by gallery artists that are under $500. Featured are Intricate, Woven, and Clear-Cut, all acrylic on canvas. Woven and Intricate have sold, Clear-Cut is available online here: https://artcld.com/art/2185171.
Two of my paintings are currently in the “Holiday Miniatures Show” going on at LeMieux Galleries in New Orleans. Bridge and Clear-Cut are both acrylic on canvas, 6″ wide by 6″ high, $450 each. Both are small paintings from my current series In Our Veins. The exhibition is going on now through December 29, 2018. Purchase inquiries: firstname.lastname@example.org or 504-522-5988.
Happy to say that my painting On the Rise is in the current issue of Tulane University’s literary arts journal The Tulane Review. On the Rise is an acrylic on canvas, 10″ wide by 20″ high. You can view the painting on my website at this direct link: https://amyguidry.com/on-the-rise.html.
I hope everyone is enjoying the holidays and the New Year. Just discovered one of my paintings sold at LeMieux Galleries in New Orleans- a very nice way to start off the year. Shelter is an acrylic on canvas, 10″ wide by 10″ high, and is from my current In Our Veins series. This piece was also featured on the cover of the Cimarron Review.

My painting Sentience was recently featured in Art Galleries & Artists of the South Magazine as part of a spread on LeMieux Galleries in New Orleans. Sentience has also found a new home. This was the first of my “butterfly eyes” paintings. The butterflies represent life- both are beautiful, fragile, and ephemeral. Sentience is an acrylic on canvas, 6″ wide by 6″high. You can view it online here: https://amyguidry.com/sentience.html and view more “butterfly eyes” paintings from the series here: https://amyguidry.com/gallery.html.
These are a few photos from opening night for the “Face to Face” exhibition at LeMieux Galleries in New Orleans. Artists represented by the gallery as well as a few new artists have created their own interpretation of portraiture, ranging from the traditional to the abstract. The show is up now through July 29th, so there’s still time to see the exhibit.
I’ve just finished both paintings previously featured while in progress. Pervasive and Sentiencewill both be on exhibit for the opening at LeMieux Galleries in New Orleans tomorrow (June 3, 2017). Pervasive has been a long time in the making. I’m sometimes asked if living in Louisiana affects my work. Given that my work deals with the welfare of our planet, many of the issues that Louisiana faces (habitat loss, flooding, BP oil spill, hurricanes) are something that I cover but on more of a global scale. Pervasive is one of the most direct pieces I’ve done, focusing on the conservation of Louisiana wildlife and wetlands. The BP oil spill not only affected the wildlife of Louisiana, but it continues to affect the wildlife of rest of the world to this day as bird and sea animals continue to migrate. It may be asking a lot of a painting, but I hope that it has a big impact.
Sentience was specifically created for the “Face to Face” exhibit opening at LeMieux Galleries. The exhibit features a range of interpretations of portraiture. In Sentience, the butterflies represent the beauty and fragility of life, while the third eye represents enlightenment. The eye is a human eye, referring to the fact that we are all members of the animal kingdom, and can see a bit of ourselves in the personalities of other animals. Sentience is an acrylic on canvas, 6″wide by 6″high.
Both paintings will be on view tomorrow, June 3rd for the opening reception from 6-8pm. The exhibit will remain up through July 29th, 2017.
This is a 30-second clip from my Artist Talk at LeMieux Galleries in New Orleans. No matter how many times I have to speak in public, it’s always terrifying. Which is why I often think that the things I don’t want to do, are probably the things that I should do. Side note: this Saturday (Sept. 24th) is the last day to catch this exhibit!
