Friday Night Event

Due to some technical difficulties with keeping the ice cream frozen, the Friday night event is being switched to a S’mores Bar!  The event staff provides a station that they create (fire and all!) with different toppings, chocolate, flavored graham crackers and marshmallows.  So bring on the chocolate and your trades!

Art-Xscape Trades

We now have guidelines for two Art-Xscape trades!

First: Art Postcards

Create 1 to 5 Artist Postcards, 4″x6″, no thicker than 1/2″.  Label the back of each card with your name and email address.  Package each in a cellophane or clear plastic bag.  Turn your trades into the Art-Xscape office any time before Friday at 5pm.  For each postcard, you will receive a ticket.  Come to the Ice Cream Social on Friday evening and select a postcard by another Art-Xscape artist for each card you entered.  If you are not able to deliver them in person, mail them ahead of time to AnLiNa Designs, PO Box 514, Round Rock, TX 78680.  We’ll swap them out for you on Friday evening.

Second: Altered Altoid Tins:

Alter 1 to 5 Altoid Tins.  Label each tin on the back with your name, address, and email address.  Pack them carefully for your trip and bring them to Art-Xscape.  Turn your trades into the Art-Xscape office any time before Saturday at 5pm.  For each tin, you will receive a ticket.  Come to the Art-Xscape Art Market on Saturday evening and select a tin by another Art-Xscape artist for each tin you enter!  If you are not able to deliver them in person, mail them ahead of time to AnLiNa Designs, PO Box 514, Round Rock, TX 78680.  We’ll swap them out for you on Saturday evening.

Art-Xscape Trades

Part of the fun of participating in an art-retreat is trading or swapping small art-ifacts with fellow participants.  At Art-Xscape, we’ll have at least two trades – an altered altoid tin trade and an art postcard trade.  We’re looking for hosts for these trades.

What does a host do?  Hosts will be responsible for sign-ups, guidelines and swapping out the trades.  Want to organize a trade other than the altoid tin and postcard swap?  Feel free to let us know and sign people up!  We’ll have sign-ups on the yahoo group.

Want to participate?  No host yet?  That’s ok, send a note to the yahoo group indicating your interest and we’ll get you on the list!
