Gallery art swap is in the cards

Campbell River Art Gallery invites artists to create, exchange art ‘trading cards’

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, Thursday, May 21 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. Please bring 15-20 art cards to trade. New faces are always welcome! Just come and bring a friend if you like.

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, collages, 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 (the same building as the Visitor Info Centre). For more info call 250-287-2261 or email
