CMMAG at Art of the Carolinas 2008

Members of CMMAG participated in Art of the Carolinas, sponsored by Jerry's Artarama. We assisted the staff by preparing and maintaining classrooms for art workshops, operated a "Make and Take" area for people to create Artist Trading Cards (ATC), and welcomed trade show goers to our own CMMAG table which featured work from many of our members.

Kudos to our intrepid secretary Penny Arrowood, for putting this all together and making it all work in pre-show planning, and over the four days of the event. Our Guild was presented to a new audience composed largely of other artists, and we received many positive comments about the work we displayed. At our CMMAG table, we raffled off a one-year membership to the Guild, and made contacts with artists from near and far.

And, at our Make and Take ATC table, we displayed hundreds of ATC made by our members, and we encouraged artists to create their own Artist Trading Cards to keep or share. Creativity and originality abounded, and fun was had by all!
