Day 150.

I bought a pack of blank trading cards yesterday.
Made by Strathmore, Bristol paper cut 2.5"X3.5",
20 per pack. These are ideal for ATC (Artist
Trading Cards).
The ATC movement started in 1997 by Swiss
artist M. Vanci Stirnemann, with an exhibition
of 1200 hand made cards. He invited other artists
to create and trade cards on the last day of the show.
It has become a popular creative and social event,
in communities around the world.

Calgary holds an ATC swap and meet at the
New Gallery (Art Central) on the last Saturday,
every month. Participants and observers are welcome.

The Card Packs can be picked up at Studio Todorovic.
