I am so excited! I just submitted a piece of mine for a show for the first time ever!
Liquidambar is a gallery in Pittsboro, NC. The owner asked the members of the Carolina Mixed Media Art Guild to submit pieces of art for possible hanging at her gallery.
So I worked on my Frances piece. You can read about it here and see more pictures. But here's a quick peek. I just dropped it off at the gallery today and am quite excited. The owner seemed pleased with it because she said everyone else had submitted paintings. I guess variety is a good thing in a gallery show.
I think pricing the piece may have been the hardest part. I have absolutely no idea where my price lies. I almost just picked a number. I find that as a newbie I tend to undervalue my work. Also I am a major league cheapskate so I have little frame of reference for what most people are willing to spend. In fact I am gobsmacked by what many people spend.
Here are a few pictures of Pittsboro which is a very pretty small town. This is the 1881 courthouse that burned a few years ago. Fortunately it was restored and reopened earlier this year.
Quaint little downtown
with some great little shops.
I was curious about the name of the gallery and had guessed that it was an invented name. Then I Googled the gallery name to look up their hours and hit upon many pages on Liquidambar. Turns out it's the species of the sweet gum tree. Ergo this sign.
