Call for Artist Trading Cards registration

June 1, 2023 – Confederation Centre Art Gallery invites artists of all ages and disciplines, professional and non-professional, to register for the 17th annual Artist Trading Cards event.

Artist trading cards are miniature works of art. They can be created with any material imaginable, including paper, wool, wood, clay, and more.

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. Artist trading cards 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.

This year’s registration deadline is Monday, July 4. People who sign up for the event must make as many cards as the number of people who have registered. Cards can be produced in editions (a limited number of the same card), series (a set of cards with a unifying theme), or as singular originals.

Registration will be on a first-come, first-served basis and is limited to 50 participants. Previous attendees are kindly asked to inform organizers if they can no longer participate in the event as a waiting list is expected.

The 17th annual trading event will be held on Thursday, August 10 at 7 p.m. in Studio 1 at Confederation Centre of the Arts.

For more information or to register, please contact Monique Lafontaine by email at [email protected].
