Artist Trading Cards Community Project to launch at The Quarryville Library

What is an Artist Trading Card? It’s simply a mini work of art to share. This craze started in Switzerland in 1997 and has become a cultural phenomena. There are simple rules: cards must be 2.5 X 3.5 in size and include artist info on the back of each card. The cards can be made with any art materials, including 3D. So far, we have artists at Bart, Providence and Quarryville Elementary schools working on ATCs to trade with fellow classmates, partnering schools, and Quarryville artist trading cardscommunity artists.

This community ever-changing art project will be on display at The Quarryville Library.

We welcome all artists and all ages to participate. Blank cards are available at the Quarryville Library or just bring your 2.5 X 3.5 piece of art and the library has the official trading card stamp for the back.

There will also be an area at the library for making Artist Trading Cards starting in mid November.

Stop by and see the exhibit grow and change as we celebrate our creative community. Make and trade!
