“The “Small Art From The Heart” exhibition will be a great opportunity for artists of all levels to showcase and advertise their talents through the form of small scale art and aid to benefit the cause to end child abuse and neglect at the same time”, says Sherri Russell, SAFTH coordinator.
The exhibit's theme will be a celebration of "diversity" - acceptance and respect for all types of art from around the world.

ACEO art cards by children as well as novice and professional artists from all over the world will be on display indoors at the Stream in Newaygo, Michigan, just 30 minutes northeast of Grand Rapids and will attract attendees from a multi-county area.
What are ACEO cards? ACEO stands for "Art Cards, Editions, and Originals". They are also known as ATCs, or "Artist Trading Cards". They can be original artwork, numbered edition prints and photographs. ACEO cards are a fun way to collect art from artists all over the world at a fraction of the cost for larger pieces. Each card is 2 1/2" x 3 1/2", the size of a baseball card, which makes it easy to collect in display cases or store in albums. Art cards can be on any weight of paper, thin card board or matte, texture, color or subject matter.
The expo is announcing a call to all children (5 and up), novice and professional artists from all over the globe to create and enter ACEO art cards in the form of paintings, photographs, prints and mixed media artworks. All art will be juried and 1st place prizes will be awarded to young artists in school grades K-2, 3-5, 6-8 and 9-12. School groups are encouraged to participate. “The exhibit’s goal is to display 1,000 ACEO cards or more”, says Sherri Russell.
The expo is also announcing a call to all art students, novice and professional artists from the state of Michigan to create and enter 10 x 10 (or smaller) artworks in the form of paintings, photographs, prints and mixed media artworks.
