[4inch]

Babahogs, an art cafe in the town where I go to uni is holding something called '4inch' which is basically an exhibition where everyone is invited to submit three pieces, measuring 4x4 inches. They will be up for sale for £10 each, £7 going to the artist and £3 going to Babahogs (it's a non profit cafe and is struggling financially).
I need your advice on what kind of thing to submit. i'm torn between textile experiments, like for my Foundation show or textile illustrations of birds.
I'd like to have a coherent 3 pieces, rather than a mish-mash of three pieces.
Which of these do you prefer? Which would you pay £10 for? They're both a little messy and i'd need to work out how to finish them properly, but you get the idea...



Feedback really would be appreciated!!
Thank you (:

they're both spectacular but I think I prefer the bird.

thanks, the dress has a print on it which looks like the galaxy and random scatterings of rhinestones, heaps of people seem to think it's sequins though haha.

I vote for the first one - its more interesting. The whole sale sounds like a great idea.

I like the second one cause I love flamingos.

The cow means nothing - it's not a special symbol in Germany it just shoes that it's a rural hotel.

I think that the first is my favourite, but the bird is more likely to sell and be of interest to more people!

They are both lovely but I'm going to have to go with the flamingo too! I have a weakness for birds...

what a great idea for an art show! I think I like the bird a bit better, although they are both great. A bird might be more sale-able though, because everyone loves birds!

Where in England are you? I'm in UK now too, traveling for 1-2years!
