ATC-Kitsilano Update

Artist Trading Cards Exhibition

ATC Trading October – December

2909 West Broadway

The ATC Exhibition at the Creative Neighbours Art Space (MLA David Eby’s Community Office, 2909 West Broadway) is up – but it’s just begun.

There will be opportunities for you to add your cards and to trade during the exhibition.

Joanne Brown and I (Mary Bennett) will be available at the Creative Neighbours Salons in October and November to assist with hanging more ATCs and encouraging people to trade Artist Trading Cards.

Each person (or group) exhibiting needs to fill a 9-card binder holder. Please use a sharpie to mark the edge of your sheet with your name. You are welcome to make an ATC about YOU – and include in the page.

At Trading sessions, you can take your own sheets down off the “clothes line” and trade with others.
We imagine this as pretty informal – you walk around and meet people who are interested and negotiate a trade one-on-one. Or you can bring new cards and leave the ones that are exhibited up.

The grey wall closest to the counter is reserved for “anything goes” trades! That is, if you put your cards up there, you’re willing to have anyone make a trade without your even being there. It’ll be an evolving space.

The other areas are for trading only when the artist is present to remove the sheets and negotiate trades. The artist will then put the binder page back (or take it home if they’re done trading).

TRADING SESSIONS: ATCs are made to be traded!

6 – 6:45 pm and 8-9 pm on October 28 and November 25 Creative Neighbours Salons.

Salon presenters speak from 7 – 8 pm. November, Mary Bennett will be talking about ATCs, the history, the practice and possibilities for a monthly ATC group in Kitsilano.

The show remains up (but changing) until December 15. Artists can come between 2 and 4 pm to do one last trade and take your cards home.

ATC Show at Creative Neighbours Art Space

I’m coordinating a show of ATCs (Artist Trading Cards) at MLA David Eby’s Community Office/Creative Neighbours Art Space as a culmination of my neighbourhood small grant.

Each participant needs to submit a binder page of 9 cards. They can be your own creations or ones you’ve traded with others. You can submit more than one page.

Please confirm by September 15 if you will be participating and how many pages of 9 cards you will be displaying.

People of all ages and abilities are welcome to submit.

There will be a trading session scheduled to trade with others.

Come Visit This Weekend

I’m showing some of my new work inspired by ideas of Alchemy.

Also – I’ll have some ATC’s (Artist Trading Cards) for you to browse at–and create your own!

The 2 books I created with Keith Wilkinson’s poetry will be available for $10 each – and of course the art is for sale!

Here are some photos from the ATC workshop at the Roundhouse. I’ll have some of the same things available for you to play, create and trade.
