2.5” x 3.5” (10 cm x 15 cm) original mixed media ACEO painting and drawing. ACEO stands for Art Cards, Editions, and Originals and represent any 2.5” x 3.5” work of art. They are sometime also known as ATCs (Artist Trading Cards) and are a fun and affordable way of collecting unique works of art. Some collectors keep them in albums and others frame them for their home or office.

My first ATC TRADE
Here are a few women from the Women's Assemblage/Bezalel group who met at my place to watch a portion of a DVD by Israeli artist, Ephraim Edward Kalish who created a film titled "Bezalel-Son of Light". I prepared lunch, we discussed the film, food, travel, stories, art, business...great convos and good company ....AND we made ATCs and ACEOs. I am fairly new to the ACEO market, creating a small series of originals and prints which you can see in my Etsy Shop. I also have my MAKE A DIFFERENCE series of ACEOs which are being shared across America and Canada. This pic below is my first acquisition trade ATC by Pamela Casey "Father Lorenzo" . Trading our mini art pieces was so much fun!
