Since VoiceCatcher6 features artists as well as writers, opportunities to exhibit as well as
sell artwork have multiplied. For example, our artists will have appeared in three month-long exhibits during 2011-2012: at In Other Words in November, Space Monkey in January, and Stonehenge Studio in May.
Unlike most of our writers who get paid for their work in copies, artists have a more daunting challenge: Putting a monetary value on their creations. Commissions from art
sales supports galleries; and bookstores, coffee shops, and special art shows galleries count on sales to help cover the cost of presenting and protecting the works they show. So each artist tries to price her work to move it out of the studio while reflecting the labor and values that went into its creation.
