The world's largest ATC exhibit, and one of the first in the United States, was held at the Columbus Center for Book and Paper Arts. The exhibit, "House of Cards"....ran from July to December 2005 at the center.
The exhibition's goal was twofold...having artwork that inspires, makes us think.....is beautiful and/or well crafted, and the artistic participation of people, of all levels, from all over the world.
Over 500 artists from 13 countries contributed to the House of Cards exhibit. There are 2,500 cards displayed...submitted by artists...designers...paper crafters...quilters...calligraphers, and others.

Seeing all of these wonderful ATC's together was fabulous! Lisa Ohmer owner of European Papers displayed her exhibit at the Cary House here in Placerville. The Cary House is a beautifully restored old hotel on Main Street.
Andy and I looked at the exhibit for hours....I took tons of photos. Lisa also was selling lots of goodies from her shop....( I couldn't resist that)....
