That's absolutely stunning. nebula it definitely is and that's from a person who doesn't like blue.
The group sounds very old fashioned. I mean if a halfed cow and an unmade bed can be described as art then this piece can only possibly be beautiful art.
Good luck

If they don't embrace you as a fellow artiste, it is their own short sighted loss. Artists thrive within communities of creativity, and they will be cutting off their own noses to spite their own faces if they don't welcome the infusion of fresh ideas that you represent.

Let's see....

Bead Artisan or Multimedia Artisan?
Crystal artist?
Master Beadsmith?

It's quite beautiful. I bet that kept you off the streets for a couple of nights. Grin
I always thought craftsman(woman) was a term of honor and respect and that a craftsman is an artist. But then I'm not running a guild.
If that is what you want and what is right for you then I pray you get it. The young fresh ethnic blood will be good for them.

I think I might start referring to myself as a MultiMedia Designer or maybe 'honky-white-girl-train-of-consciousness interpreter". The last one sounds more dance oriented, to me.

Good Luck, BB

That is absolutely gorgeous! Seriously, it is more elaborate/intricate, and beautiful than most of the pieces I've seen in my Beading books, which I more admire than aspire to-my talent admittedly is not in beading... but (one of) yours most definitely is!

As for artists vs. craftspeople... Lots of people have told me/tell me that I should go into the arts, but I never could. They just always seem to uppity and elitist to me. I feel like craftspeople are artists only more down to earth, which can be specifically seen in the fact that many of their creations have use beyond that of being strictly "art."

If you weren't trying to get in good with them (and good luck and power to you for gaining such well-deserved credit!), I'd say tell them that any title beyond your name, any simplification of your multifaceted individualism is offensive.

Again, absolutely gorgeous piece! (so jealous!!)

Your bead work is absolutely breathtaking, I wish you luck and hope you are chosen for the gallery. I like the suggestion of "bead artisan", If they don't consider bead work an "art" they definitely will when they see your pieces.

Thank you everyone for your kind comments. they mean far more to me than anything a stuffy committee could ever say.

......I bet that kept you off the streets for a couple of nights. Grin

just a little bit. I think I worked out the total time to make was something around 20/25 hours or so Smiley

Is that all?   Shocked It would have taken me 20-25 months, at best!  Grin
Your work is lovely. I hope the committee appreciates it.

Thus far, I've loved every piece you've chosen to share. There are so many people who are now doing "crafts." I think they're trying to distinguish from those who do amateurish crafting and those who truly have skill. Therefore the title artisan is used. You fit into the second title easily. Good luck on being accepted!
