New year, new painting. Though technically I finished this painting shortly beforehand. This piece was done with a friend in mind that loves wolves and rescues insects, too, and is now in her collection. The title is Interdepend and it is an acrylic on canvas, 4″ wide by 4″ high. This piece has sold, but you can find more paintings and prints available through my website: https://amyguidry.com/gallery.html.
I was recently invited to create a piece for the upcoming “Ho’olaule’a” exhibition opening at Cactus Gallery in Los Angeles. The exhibit celebrates endangered species (Ho’olaule’a is Hawaiian for celebration), and I chose to paint the Ethiopian wolf. Ethiopian wolves are the only wolf found in Africa. They are the rarest species of dog in the world and the rarest carnivore in Africa. There are less than 450 left in the wild. They live in close-knit packs of 3-13 adults, but unusually for wolves, they hunt alone. One of their biggest threats comes from habitat loss due to agriculture.
The title of my painting is Hope and it is an acrylic on canvas, 4″ wide by 6″ high. The human third eye refers to our connection with nature: the we see ourselves in animals as well as seeing the world through their eyes. The rainbow is a symbol of hope, hence the title, and serves to inspire us all to keep working towards a better future for all of nature.
The “Ho’olaule’a” exhibition opens this Saturday, May 12th, 6-9pm and will remain up through June 2nd. More details here: https://cactusgalleryla.com/. For pre-sales, contact Sandra at firstname.lastname@example.org.

As part of the “Good Mourning Tis of Thee” exhibition I was recently a part of, Co-Lab Projects has created a catalog of works by over 60 artists from the show.

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.
My painting The Pack will be on view starting tomorrow in Austin, Texas. It was selected to be a part of “Good Mourning Tis of Thee,” a conceptual group exhibition curated by Alyssa Taylor Wendt and Sean Gaulager. Funded by a generous grant from the city of Austin and the Cultural Arts Division, this exhibit will cover such themes as death and transformation, in which death is a catalyst for positive change. The show runs October 13th through November 2nd, 2017 at Co-Lab Projects’ DEMO Gallery in Austin, TX. There will be an opening reception tomorrow, October 13th from 7-11pm.
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.
