August 19, 2011

Amy Guidry ’98, from Lafayette, La., had her work featured on the cover and inside of the CALYX Journal’s 35th anniversary edition. Her painting, “Adaptation,” was on the cover, and “Freedom” was on the inside. CALYX Journal was established in 1976 by four women with a vision to provide a publication that celebrates the excellence and diversity of women’s literature and art.

Guidry grew up in Slidell, La. She received her bachelor’s degree in visual arts from Loyola in 1998. She was also awarded the Loyola University Art Scholarship, which is only awarded to one student per graduating class.

Guidry’s work has been exhibited in galleries and museums nationwide including the Visual Arts Center of New Jersey, the Alexandria Museum of Art, the Women’s Research Center at Brandeis University, and the Acadiana Center for the Arts.

Her work is presently in private and public collections including the Zigler Art Museum, the Alexandria Museum of Art, the Schepis Museum, and the Cedar Rapids Museum of Art. Guidry’s paintings have been featured in publications such as American Artist Magazine, Studio Visit and Adbusters. Her work has also been featured on MTV’s “The Real World, Season 20: Hollywood.”
