Gala Auction items

New for 2018  - Artist Trading Cards
Artist trading cards are unique works signed and dated on the reverse by the artist.  They are 2 12 by 3 12 inches (64 mm × 89 mm) and are meant to be exchanged and collected - the same as baseball cards. Artists can submit their card(s); they will be displayed during the show; at the end of the show the cards will randomly be given out to the artists. If any artist wants to collect more than one card - they can submit more than one card. 

Find out more about Artist Trading Cards on Wikipedia at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Artist_trading_cards

If a Canadian artist is not going to be there they can mail in their card with a self addressed stamped envelope to: Saskatchewan Wildlife Art Association, Box 910, Martensville, SK. S0K 2T0. 

NOTE that a card will be mailed back in that envelope - so if the artist wants it to be a padded envelope, or an envelope with an extra cardboard for protection - that envelope must be what they send. If the artist feels confident that the card will arrive safely without extra reinforcement a simple envelope will be fine. 

Handcrafted ornaments to be sold in a booth to raise funds for The Saskatchewan Wildlife Art Association.  All sales go to SWAA,
