The Richmond Art Gallery is pleased to be presenting its second annual Artist Trading Card (ATC) Exhibition July 13 – September 7! We have invited artists and non-artists to submit their ATCs for this exhibition and our call has been answered from ATC enthusiasts from across Canada and internationally. ATCs are tiny works of art that are made to trade. There are no restrictions of medium—materials might involve collage, drawing, painting, stained glass, metal, wax, computer generated imaging, photography—the possibilities are endless! ATCs are intended to be a non-commercial, non-hierarchical avenue for artistic exchange. Cards are traded one for one and everyone is invited to participate.
The exhibition will be on display in what was previously the Gallery’s Art Access Rental Space and will run concurrently with the group exhibition Shift: Working Through Repetition and Difference. A closing Celebration & Trading Session will be held Friday, September 7, 7pm. Some exhibition participants will be on hand to trade their cards and the public is invited to create their own cards and come and trade with them at this free event.
