Confederation Centre’s Art Gallery makes call for artist trading card submissions

June 18, 2013

P.E.I.'s annual Artist Trading Cards event is returning to the Confederation Centre Art Gallery this summer, and gallery staff is looking for artists of all ages and disciplines, professional and non-professional, to register.

Artist trading cards (ATCs) are miniature works of art. They can be created with any material imaginable. Cards can be made from paper, wool, wood, clay and more.

This year's registration deadline is June 21. A week after registration, participants will be contacted to confirm the number of cards they are required to create for the event. If 50 people sign up for the program, participants will be requested to create 50 cards. Cards can be produced in editions (a limited number of the same card), series (set of cards with a unifying theme), or as singular originals.
The main requirement is the size: cards MUST be the same size as modern baseball cards or 2 ½ x 3 ½ inches (6 cm x 9 cm), small enough to fit inside standard card-collector pockets, sleeves or sheets. ATCs must be self-produced. The artist's name and contact information, as well as the card title and the edition or series number is to be written on the back.

The seventh annual trading event will be held on Thursday, August 1 at 7:00 p.m. in the Confederation Centre Art Gallery. Along with the card trading, there will be music and a cash bar. More details on the evening's program will be announced at a later date. All ages are welcome to participate.
For more information or to register, please contact Monique Lafontaine at the Confederation Centre Art Gallery by email at, or by phone at 902-628-6105.
