CYBER FYBER: ATC Exhibit in Columbia, South Carolina

ATCs (Artist Trading Cards) have become quite popular and collectible in the last few years. Artists sell them in many different venues, including eBay and Etsy, in a wide range of price points. Some will reproduce larger pieces at an affordable price while others will make the ATC an art piece in itself. The same size as baseball trading cards, ATCs fit into books made for the sports cards. They can also be displayed in magnetic sleeves on a fridge or framed into theme groups.

Several of our Fiber Focus Group members are participating in a group show in South Carolina. The press info follows below. If you are interested in trading cards, this opportunity is also available through the Show's site.
