In March 2010 the Vancouver ATC Group will celebrate its tenth anniversary with Vancouver 2010 ATCs, an exhibition of artist trading cards open to participants from all over the world.
The group has been meeting weekly since 2000 at the Grind Gallery and Coffee Shop on Main Street at 25th Avenue in Vancouver, British Columbia, and you're welcome to go along to meetings on the third Sunday of each month from 2:30 to 4:00 pm, even if you don't have cards to trade.
Artists from all over the world are invited to submit entries for the exhibition. All cards received will be included in the display, and traded at the close of the show. Each participant who includes funds for return postage will receive nine assorted cards in return.
Entries consisting of nine cards in the standard artist trading card size of 2½ by 3½ inches (64 x 89 mm) should be submitted in a clear plastic nine-card sleeve by 28th February 2010 to:
Vancouver 2010 ATCs
c/o RubyDog's Art House
Artists who wish to receive swaps at the end of the exhibition should include a self-addressed label and $3 in Canadian postage stamps or US currency, or an International Reply Coupon.
Suggested themes for entries are:
The exhibition will take place at RubyDog's Art House, Heaven Tree Studios and Collage Collage, which can all be found at the junction of Kingsway, 15th Avenue and Fraser Street in Vancouver.
