[BKARTS] Artiscape Artist Trading Cards Call for Entries for FIRST ATC EXHIBIT in the United States (Columbus, OH, USA)

I think this might be of interest to many of the members of this list. 


The Columbus Center for Book and Paper Arts/European 
Papers, Ltd. is having a call for entries for Artist Trading Cards 
(ATCs) for its inaugural gallery show this summer, "House of 
Cards." The exhibit will be the first ever ATC exhibit in the
United States. ATCs are mixed media artworks that measure 2 
½" x 3 ½". 

The emerging art media of ATCs will be sole focus of this exhibit 
which runs from July 30 - October 1, 2005. The exhibit includes 
an opening reception, evening programs and trading sessions. 
A unique display allows for viewing of cards from floor to ceiling, 
with 10' high walls created from Artist Trading Cards. The Center 
is located in downtown Columbus, Ohio at 539 East Town 

The deadline for submitting entries is Thursday, June 30, 2005. 
The submission fee is $7 and may include up to five ATC 

A show catalogue will include all entries and will be cross 
referenced by country of origin. Awards will be given for Best of 
Show, as well as in the categories of Beauty, use of Fabric 
and/or Fiber, and Humor. The exhibit is curated to determine 
placement; however all entries will be included in the show and 
will become part of a traveling exhibit. In early 2006, the exhibit 
will travel to St Marys, Georgia for display at the Creative Palette 
artist's gathering. All submitting artists receive a
hand-numbered color exhibit postcard and copy of the show 

"ATCs have an interesting history in Europe and are now really 
catching on with artists in North America," said the Center's
Lisa Ohmer. "We are excited to be hosting this first ever exhibit 
here in America."

The exhibition's goal is two-fold, both artwork that inspires, 
makes us think, is beautiful and/or well-crafted; and the artistic 
participation of people, of all levels, from all over the world. 
Anyone can enter from professional artists and designers to 
those just beginning their Artist Trading Card journey, including 
children. A special children's wall is planned within the exhibit
to inspire school groups and charm visitors. ATCs and entry fees 
may be sent to: European Papers, Ltd. /ATC; 539 East Town 
Street, Carriage House; Columbus, OH 43215.

Details about the exhibit and entry forms can be found at 

The exhibition's opening reception is planned for Saturday 
evening, July 30, 2005. More information on evening programs, 
trading sessions and adult and children's educational 
opportunities will be posted online closer to the event.
