Art you can shuffle

Normally, playing with the art in the Columbia Art League gallery would be frowned upon, but not this fall.

Granted, playing with the actual art that will hang in the gallery still isn’t acceptable, but the group’s upcoming exhibit, House of Cards, will be turned into a deck of playing cards for the public to purchase.

An opening reception is set for 6 to 8 p.m., Oct. 21, at the gallery.

The original pieces can be viewed in the gallery from Oct. 19 through Nov. 20, and will be photographed for the playing cards by Art Smith of Pure Gallery & Studio.

The show will feature 53 pieces by local artists, including the four suits and one joker. Which card an artist created was determined by a blind drawing from a master deck at the gallery, ensuring that there were no repeats or forgotten cards.

Proceeds from the cards will provide funds for the Columbia Art League.
