Open to all participants in the Lower Mainland and Beyond
11 September ­ 14 November 2008
Closing Celebration and Trading Session:
Friday 14 November 2008 from 7:00 ­ 8:30pm

The RAG’s 3rd Annual ATC Exhibition is a display of Artist Trading Cards from local, national, and international participants. This year the exhibition will include workshops, trading sessions, artist talks, and a closing celebration/trading session. All contributors will receive a copy of the show poster featuring one of their works.
What Are ATCs? Artist Trading Cards are miniature works of art measuring 2.5” x 3.5” that are made to trade. 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. For more information on the history and making of ATCs, please visit http://www.richmondartgallery.org/atcs/atc.php.
2008 ATC Exhibition Theme:
ATCs will be on display alongside the exhibitions MARGINALIA: Getting Out of the House by Margaret Dragu and Pam Hall, and Patron Saint of Waterskiers by Emily Rosamond.

(See http://www.richmondartgallery.org/marginalia.php, http://www.richmondartgallery.org/rosamond.php)

In conjunction with these exhibitions, ATC submissions should reflect one or more of the following themes which relate to the works of Dragu & Hall, and Rosamond:

o Life as Art
o Correspondence
o Gender Roles
o Home and Domestic Life
o Community
o Friendship Across Distance and Difference

How To Enter: Send in 9 or 18 regular sized Artist Trading Cards (2.5” x 3.5”) in a standard 9-sleeve plastic sheet (9 cards per sheet) with a Self-Addressed Stamped Envelope to the Richmond Art Gallery. Please sign the back of each ATC.
Please indicate if you would like to have your cards traded for you. Traded cards will be returned to you in the SASE you have provided. All trading of cards in the exhibition will take place on the closing night, 14 November 2008.

Andrea Marrs

A guest book has been set up at for anyone who would like to write something.
Here is the link: Remembering.ca

It is with a heavy heart that I report the loss of our dear friend Andrea Marrs. Andi passed away last night after a very courageous fight. We were blessed to have her for these past months. Her generosity of spirit and gentleness has been a true inspiration. I will miss my friend.
