call for submisions-the first cotswold artist trading card exhibition

Artist trading cards are not as well known here in the UK, so to promote them in the Cotswolds i am organising the following exhibition.

Organised and funded entirely by myself and at my own cost, any contributions {in cards not money please} is more then greatly accepted.

We have local press the evesham journal, cotswold life and the cotswold echo plus craft shops all over interested in covering the exhibition in publicity.

We are hosting the swap in the picturesque town of Broadway, Worcestershire which hosts the amazing lygon arms, amazing shops and many eateries, generally a good day out i feel...on the 2nd of december 2006.

To have your atc's included in this amazing opportunity in the centre of the Cotswolds please forward 2 atc's or more if you wish. As well as your atc's please provide a small bio of yourself, email address etc. so this can be put besides your work, you never know who will be there....

These works can not be returned and donated cards will become part of my personal collection after the exhibition.

This exhibition is only promotional, no cards are for sale.

Any meduim is accepted painted, drawn, fabric, clay,...anything goes if are sending digitals please use embelishments.

All artists who donate cards will have there work named in the exhibition newsletter.
