Vibrant Colors Angel Card with Jewels
ACEO stands for Art Cards, Editions and Originals
ACEOs are miniature pieces of art that measure 2-1/2" x 3-1/2". If a small piece of art has different measurements than this, it does not qualify as an ACEO.
They can be original art, printed editions or photographs.
Most ACEOs are two dimensional, but three dimensional elements may also be incorporated. Paintings, Drawings, Collages, Pop-Ups, books, and sculpture can all be ACEOs as long as they measure 2-1/2" x 3-1/2"!
ACEOs started off of Artist Trading Cards (ATCs), developed by the artist M.Vänçi Stirnemann. He based the size of ATCs on sports trading cards.
ATCs can only be traded or given away. Their purpose is to share art and to encourage creative exchange between artists.
Like ATCs, ACEOs may be made with any media, material, or method as long as they measure 2-1/2" x 3-1/2".
