ATC and “The Plan”

23 05 2012

Ok – so here it is;

Friday – In class we will go out in the field, so to speak, to complete our art from nature pieces.

Monday – The third deadline for the mounted photo series. Failure to meet this deadline will give a whole new meaning to the word “dead”line.

Thursday next week – back in to studio for the final big piece of the school year. And on this day I will collect for IWB for the May check.

After all of these things we will begin our work towards this summer’s ATC event (see below) and our end of the year display.

Artist Trading Cards Registration Call

We  are going ahead with the 6th edition of the Artist Trading Cards event. P.E.I.’s annual Artist Trading Cards event is returning to the Confederation Centre Art Gallery this summer, and gallery staff is looking for artists of all ages and disciplines, professional and non-professional, to register.

Artist trading cards (ATCs) are miniature works of art. They can be created with any material imaginable. Cards can be made from paper, wool, wood, clay and more.

This year’s registration deadline is June 29. A week after registration, participants will be contacted to confirm the number of cards they are required to create for the August event. If 50 people sign up for the program, participants will be requested to create 50 cards.

Cards can be produced in editions (a limited number of the same card), series (set of cards with a unifying theme), or as singular originals.

The main requirement is the size: CARDS MUST BE THE SAME SIZE AS MODERN BASEBALL CARDS<; OR 2 ½ X 3 ½ INCHES (6 CM X 9 CM), small enough to fit inside standard card-collector pockets, sleeves or sheets. ATCs must be self-produced. The artists’ name and contact information, as well as the card title and the edition or series number is to be written on the back.

The fifth annual trading event will be held on Thursday, August 9 at 7 p.m. Along with the card trading, there will be music and a cash bar. More details on the evening’s program will be announced at a later date.

For more information or to register, please contact Monique Lafontaine at the Confederation Centre Art Gallery by email at<>, or by phone at 902-628-6105.
