Art Trading Cards Show

I attended my very first art trading card show last Saturday night (Feb 27) primarily because I was one of the 50 artists at Carded!It started at 8:00PM and we would have been on time if only I remembered to bring the exact address. By the time we actually found the place, it was close to 8:30PM and the place was packed! I introduced myself to the curators and as they thanked me for submitting they also gave me a stack of my very own trading card. It did not long before someone asked if I have something to trade. Before I long I was trading cards and ended up having 18 different cards from traders and artists! It was a lot of fun. It was also fun to have “fans” request for me to sign my card and talk a little bit about my art. I would have stayed a little longer if I was not feeling unwell due to my allergies and having a cold AND also the fact that my dear husband and (by then sleeping) daughter were waiting in the car for me. Although my husband was not a big fan of the event, he is my greatest fan and supporter, and he came along “just in case I did not have anybody to talk to at the show”. It was also very nice to have a ride home instead of taking transit.

It is always inspiring to meet other artists and their art. I’m looking forward to attending this fantastic event next year and perhaps even submit for their other show, Hot One Inch Action, where they trade buttons instead of art cards. These are great events for artists and art collectors alike or even just for a social event and meet other people who enjoy art. There were even a few kids present and trading cards already!
Here’s a pic of the packed gallery at around 9PM.
Pardon the angle on the picture since I did my best to get the camera as high as possible.
Here’s a pic of the piece I submitted hanging on the wall.
