Hi gang, as promised here is the info on the ATC event. Remember, participation in this event will satisfy my requirements for your summer work. You don’t have to do this, but if not this then you’ll be given some other grand artistic task. That could be good, or it cold be bad.
Charlottetown – P.E.I.’s fourth annual artist trading card event is coming to the Confederation Centre Art Gallery this summer, and gallery staff are looking for artists of all ages and disciplines to register now.
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.
The registration deadline is June 11. A week after registration, participants will be contacted to confirm the number of cards they are required to create for the August trading event. If 50 people sign up for this program, participants will be requested to create 50 ATCs for trading at the August event.
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 <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Baseball_cards> or 2 ½ X 3 ½ inches (6cm x 9cm), small enough to fit inside standard card-collector pockets, sleeves or sheets. ATCs must be self-produced and signed by the artist. The artists’ name and contact information as well as the card title and the edition or series number is written on the back.
That trading event will be on Wednesday, August 11 at 7:30 p.m. Along with the card trading, there will be music and refreshments. More details on the evening’s program will be announced in the summer.
