Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) are miniature works of original art measuring 2 ?? x 3 ?? that are made to trade. This international art movement is intended to be a non-commercial, non-hierarchical, non-judgemental avenue for artistic exchange. 2009 ATC Exhibition Guidelines: ATCs will be on display alongside the exhibition Migration/Immigrant Stories by Elizabeth Russell, and the group exhibition Black Hole is Also Supernova. View our website for details on these exhibitions and for ideas of related themes: ATCs must be original artworks, and may be in a series, edition or multiple. Please ?sign? the back of each card. All ATCs will be traded on the closing night of the exhibition. We will try to ensure fair trades for those not in attendance for the closing Trading Session: original works will be traded for originals, and digital works will be traded with other digital works. To Enter: Send in 9 Artist Trading Cards in a standard 9-sleeve plastic sheet (9 cards per sheet). Cards will be displayed in the plastic sheets. Cards must each measure 2 ?? x 3 ?? in order to qualify. All works received that follow this criteria will be exhibited.
