Artist Trading Card Show and Swap

Cindy Lantier: ATC - Stained Glass Gargoyle

Redlands Art Association is inviting all artists to join in an Artist Trading Card Show and Swap at their Gallery and Art Center in downtown, Redlands, CA. You can download the prospectus here.
The Show is from October 4th through the 9th. The cards will be on display and the public will be invited to see our art. The Swap is on October 9th at 3PM.

RAA wants everyone to participate… if you mail in your cards, we will swap them for you and mail those back.

Because RAA is encouraging emerging artists to sell their work, we are also accepting ACEOs for sale. ACEOs will not be eligible for swap. Those not sold will be returned to the artist.

Children’s Art Show Reception Aug 28, 2010

A big Thank You to all the Teachers, and Education

Leaders involved in the Children’s Art Show this August. There was a very impressive turn out of parents at the reception on Saturday, August 28. A lot of work was put into the show, including organizing the teams of teachers who helped with the hanging, and taking down, of the art. An extra big thanks to Firouzei F., Kristy B., and Ms. G. Steinweg, for their dedication and vision; without which the show would have been canceled.

Patty Hayden brought fresh lemonade, and some of her art easels for the art. Thanks to teachers Darlene D, “Mrs. M.”, Ian K., and Lori P. for their support and creative contributions. Special thanks to Sue K, John Fisher, and Gail/John Brownsfield for coming to help the actual day of the Reception.

This Art Show was dedicated to the creative kids, and young artists who have taken Art Camp, and other classes during the year!! Let Us Celebrate Your Talents here at the RAA!
