Hi, OY!  That is awesome!

I'm in Fort Worth, too.  Where will the exhibit be?
It's at the Firehouse Art Gallery, the exhibit runs from March 24th-April 29th.  It's an Earth Day celebration!  Sunday April 22nd is the big 'Earth Day Festivities' day, with outdoor sales and tables from 2pm-6pm.  I'm sure the gallery website can tell you more.

I'd love it for anyone who could to see her in person, my camera is shoddy, and you can see all the foreign wording, texture from the fabrics and 3-d-ness of the lace and toile that stick out.  I'm proud of her!

Any tips on pricing?  I know what I want to put (and the number of hours that went into it!) but will always take opinions!  Smiley

Oh, I'm familiar with Firehouse.  I'm actually moving (from the eastside to the TCU area) during that timeframe, but I'll try to get over there to see it.

It really is a beautiful piece.  Smiley

I would so love to see that in person!!!  I want to touch it.

I did a search on pricing for you but came up with nada. Sorry

As if the art wasn't amazing enough, I'm in  Shocked that you remember where all your scraps came from.

Thanks ladies! 
Now, nobody else send me scraps, okay?  My hubby would freak out, and I can't go rent storage space for my craft supplies!  Tongue

ha ha --Hell must be freezing over if OY is refusing scraps!! ha ha

I will keep your box of scraps under my crafting table for the time when you need them (which, at the rate you produce pieces, won't be long!) wow

I hate pricing, also--if you go too cheap, people don't seem to value it as much but if you go too expensive, it won't sell!  Are there others that have exhibited before?  Can they tell you what kind of crowd will be coming?  Hopefully, it will be a  more urban, affluent group that would give the piece its rightful place in their home!!!

Thanks everyone! I delivered her to the gallery today for the installation, the owner really liked it!  She is going to recommend my work to another gallery, thinking my style will mesh better there for a show.  I'm stoked! 

My piece blended well with the others in the gallery for the exhibit, most of those were more scuptural.  It fit it, but also stood out; probably because I LOVE color so much.

I also did settle on a price, I went with my gut on this one....I knew what I probably could get (or should), but went with a lower value, of what I think it could actually sell for.  I certainly would prefer the cash to another piece of art laying around the house!  Smiley
Sell it now, and I won't have to bring it home to store it.  Tongue

I'll keep you guys posted if it sells!  Thanks for the support.

Exhibit is open March 31st -April 22nd, and there is a big Earth day celebration there that day, with craft booths and people selling stuff, come and check it out if you are local!

That's great, OY!  Will Firehouse be asking that pieces be left until the end of the exhibit if they are sold?  I'm moving opening weekend and I don't want to miss seeing this piece in person.  Smiley

I would assume that is the case, that the pieces will be up March 24-April 22nd...They don't want to have to rearrange if they get sold!  Smiley

I'm working on 2 more pieces today....enjoying it.  They won't be as complicated as the last one though....but still 'trashy'.  Smiley
I LOVE recycled art!
