Trading cards not just for athletes

Proving the best things come in small packages, the next Artist’s Trading Card event takes place at the Campbell River Art Gallery

Proving once again that the best things come in small packages, the next Artist’s Trading Card event takes place at the Campbell River Art Gallery tomorrow from 7:30-8:30 p.m.

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

The only difference between these artist’s cards 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.

Cards can be painted, collaged, mixed media, photographs, three dimensional shapes, or found objects. There are no rules. It’s up to each individual where creativity leads them. Sign the back as you would any art work and add contact info if you wish.

Bring along about 10-20 cards to trade on a one-to-one basis with other participants. Drop in to see what the fun is all about.

All ages are encouraged to participate. The more the merrier. The Gallery is located at 1235 Shoppers Row (the same building as the Visitor Info Centre). For more info call (250) 287-2261 or e-mail contact@crartgallery.ca.
