Amy Giust

Artist Amy Giust shared her unique style for a decade of FestivalSouth’s commemorative paintings. Each is a representation of her love for the arts and culture of her hometown and passion and dedication to the arts provided by FestivalSouth. Giust creates joyful, abstract paintings in acrylics and watercolors.  Her favorite subjects are from everyday life — women, families, musical instruments, and flowers.  The artist’s work developed from realism to a personal style inspired by the intuitiveness and boldness of her own children’s artwork.  Her lyrical and imaginative paintings reflect optimism, humor and spirituality. 

Giust is energized by music and often paints to the sounds of jazz, classical or rock.  She loved the subject of geometry while growing up, and is inspired by Matisse and Picasso whose paintings explore the interplay of line, shape, and color.  

For the past 30 years, Giust has been involved in solo exhibits at galleries throughout the eastern half of the US.  One of her paintings was chosen for the Art In Embassies program and hung in the Ambassador’s residence in Lisbon, Portugal.  She was also chosen to be one of several artists to exhibit at the “My South” celebration held during the Republican Convention in New York City (2004).  In 2006, she completed the Stations of the Cross for a church in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and in 2007, painted a 70-foot mural in downtown Hattiesburg.
