PR – Artist Card Trading Night

Do you know about Artist Trading Cards? Whether you do or don’t, we hope you’ll join us for ATC nights with host Harvey Chometsky.
In short, Artist Trading Cards are self-made unique works or small series, signed and dated on the reverse by the artist/producer, exchanged and collected by the people who participate in this collaborative event. There are only 2 “rules”: the cards must be 2.5″x3.5″ (the same as modern hockey cards or baseball cards), and they are only to be traded, not sold.
Make them ahead of time, or make them on the spot. We’ll bring some blanks and other art supplies.
And this is a family-friendly event!
