The second annual Artist Trading Card show will be held in June at A Novel Experience and local artists are encouraged to submit their work by June 1. Artist Trading Cards can be any medium but they have to be 2.5 x 3.5 – the same size as a baseball trading card. Artists will have a chance to trade them at the ATC closing reception Friday, June 24 from 6 to 8 p.m. ’We’ll display them for the month of June – bring them framed, or not – it’s up to you,’ said organizer Brenda Fayard who is available to answer questions at the store each Monday. Artist Trading Cards are miniature artworks of the same size as modern trading cards. They fit inside standard card-collector pockets, sleeves or sheets. ATCs are self-made unique works or small series, signed and dated on the back side: series are numbered. Like commercial trading cards they are swapped between the people who create them, mostly at regular trading sessions as they exist today in more than 30 cities in Europe, Canada, the US and Australia. Producing cards, exchanging and collecting them becomes part of an ongoing collaborative process beyond the art market. Anybody can participate in the project and all techniques are allowed.
