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.

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
