View the lecture on Youtube


Magic realism in the paintings of Lafayette resident Amy Guidry will be the focus of a lecture by Lee A. Gray, PhD, Curator of the Paul and Lulu Hilliard University Art Museum on the UL Lafayette campus. The presentation will take place on Wednesday, April 2nd, in OliverHall Auditorium at 7 P.M.

A North Carolina native, Guidry grew up in Slidell and studied graphic design on an art scholarship at Loyola University. Her work has been exhibited in galleries and museums throughout the United States. She has been profiled in a number of art publications, and her work was recently featured in a 2013 motion picture “Angels Sing,” starring Harry Connick, Jr., and Willie Nelson. Guidry is currently represented by galleries in both Hammond and Austin, TX.

Her work has been frequently cited for its technical perfection in its combination of photorealism and surrealism. Collectors and critics have hailed Guidry’s paintings as exceptionally thoughtprovoking and cerebral in their exploration of the human psyche and the natural world.

The lecture is sponsored by the Flora Plonsky Levy Endowment of the UL Foundation and the Hilliard Art Museum.
