Art of the Day: Friday July 01, 2005

Greenery - SOLD!

- by Joanna Grant

This week's theme: ATC's and ACEO's

ATC stands for Artist Trading Card. ACEO stands for Art Cards, Editions and Originals. These cards are the size of a trading card - they are 3.5 inches by 2.5 inches. ATC's have been traded among artists for some time. They have become more and more popular and now ACEO's are available for sale to collectors who wish to buy them. As the name implies, some are prints and some are originals. Both are in high demand as they are beautiful, easy to collect and fun to make.

Art: Greenery - SOLD! by Artist Joanna Grant
SOLD! Find more collectable art cards by typing ACEO in your Ebay Search field. This ONE OF A KIND, ORIGINAL art card and magnet in one was created using recycled materials, just like my other collage art, magnets, cards, and pendants. This is the third piece from my new series entitled, "Twisted Metal," and incorporates recycled matboard, discarded paper, scrap wallpaper, shrink plastic, scrap acetate, stamped images, discarded jewelry components, acrylic paints, and assorted doodads. The " twisted metal" effect is created with a discarded credit card. This gives the piece a real 3D effect (about .5" high overall). Card has a thin magnet attached to the back. This is an ORIGINAL piece of art, not a copy or print. It is signed and dated on the back. The effect I am going for with these pieces is fun and funky. I refer to my work as "primitive" because my use of recycled materials often results in the finished product looking a bit rough or unrefined, which I think just adds to the interest and character of the individual piece. Take this opportunity to collect my work in this unique form…a traditional Trading Card. It would make a very unique gift for that special someone or a real conversation piece of "appliance art" for your home or office. Please note that due to differences in computer monitor settings, colors may vary slightly from the description.
