Artist Trading Card event at the Campbell River Art Gallery

Artists of all ages who would like to create and trade miniature works of art are invited to attend the next Artist Trading Card event at the Campbell River Art Gallery, tomorrow at 7 p.m.

This is a fun, social and creative program that meets four times a year to swap trading cards.

The only difference between these and sports trading cards is that you create your own homemade 2 ½ x 3 ½ inch trading card like a miniature work of art.

Bring 15-20 art cards to trade. New faces are always welcome. Cards should be 2.5 inches x 3.5 inches exactly so they fit in the sleeves that are used for saving baseball cards. The theme is open. Bring original cards, not photocopies.

The cards are miniature works of art and are meant to be traded, not bought or sold. Your cards can be painted, collaged, mixed media, photographs, three dimensional shapes, or found objects.

It’s up to you where your creativity leads you. Sign the back as you would any art work and add your contact information if you wish.

The Gallery is located at 1235 Shoppers Row. For more info call 250-287-2261 or email contact@crartgallery.ca.
