Accepted: EXPLORE THIS! 5

"The victory of socialism is well worth millions of atomic victims."
Ernesto "Che" Guevara, November, 1962
Local DC 219 member, Rex Barron, was accepted into the CPSA's Explore This! 5 show. Rex had this to say his piece,
"...this was certainly the least colorful of the two I submitted, but maybe the subject rang true with the latest headlines."
Congratulations, Rex! To see more of Rex's work, check out his website.

And CPSA now has a blog too! Read all about Explore this! 5 and other news & events here.

A complete list of the accepted artists is also available on the CPSA's website.

Project: Artist Trading Cards

Artist Trading Cards (ATC's) are all the rage!

At this month's CPSA 219 meeting, member Barabara Nahler introduced us all the this phenomenon and generously passed out various types of blank Strathmore ATC's for our members to create on. Our job is to complete as many trading cards as we'd like or can, to bring to the next meeting to trade with each other. Fun!

For more information, visit Strathmore's Website
Also, search Yahoo groups to find out about various groups online trading cards!
