Art in the cards

Three of my friends are featured in the newly-released Charlotte “Art in Hand” deck of playing cards: Betsy Birkner, Nancy G. Cook and Janet A. Lasher. That’s Nancy’s card featured on the promotional postcard above (it’s the yellow seedpod, fourth from the left). Each artist chose the card she/he wanted, and created a piece of art a certain size that contained the number and suit. Each of the works were photographed and printed on playing cards. Cool.

Even cooler, you can purchase the original artwork starting May 16 at the Creative Art Exhange in Cornelius.

I’m going to buy a deck soon, and I’ll post more photos when I do.
