Sorry that I haven't been around here or responded to any of the requests for more info.  I still have the paintings/collages, but I am holding on to them for now. 
 
I found one of her collages on an art auction site, Yellow Hacienda, which sold for about $750.00.

St. Barts didn't get discovered in the 90s. It's always been a home.

So cool.

I was just looking at an old post card of Le Select which is one of her old pieces.  I would love to see the original of this.  Perhaps the owner could bring it to the anniversary in Nov....60 years WOW

Hi, My husband and I had a home at Gouverneur in St. B for almost 20 years and were privileged to count Margot and Benji among our friends. We saw them often, and visited them after their move to Sarasota. Like many of us in that circle at that time, I have a painting. I know of at least 3 others that are around. I also have several of the postcards, possibly the one of Le Select. I cannot check this until early August. Benji was a producer of documentary films. I believe Benji graduated from F and M; he always complained about the way colleges could track him down. I think an exhibit in St. B, with a sale would bring good prices.

I have three Margot Ferra originals that I inherited.  They were done in 1964, 1965 and 1966.  If any interest, let me know.
Thanks,
James

I have been reading the posts in this forum with great interest. I have inherited a collage by Margot Ferra which I love. I am of the age where it's time to begin inventorying (is that a word?) some of the things I've accumulated over the years. Does anyone have any idea what her art work may be worth these days?

We believe that an effort should be made, if it has not been done, to find the notebooks with pictures of all Margot's works that she kept if they are in the hands of her heirs, and they should be sent to the St. Barts historical archive or history museum --whatever is most appropriate.
Her record of the island's traditional and historical architecture in the 60's and 70's would document much that has been lost to time and/or tourist development. Would it be possible to find these? 
She photographed every collage that she made of the island before selling these.
If there were to be a show it would be very important-- and why not a show?
She carefully noted to whom each work was sold, but many of these purchasers were then already retired, thus hard to trace now.
Carola and I have a collage of an old shack from 1978?--undated.
Beni played the jazz clarinet.
Carola and I remember the Dangers fondly from that time.
