Since 1998, Visual AIDS has produced the annual Postcards From the Edge benefit, a show and sale of original, postcard-sized works on paper by established and emerging artists.
Known within the art scene as the most exciting and affordable way to add to a collection, Postcards From the Edge offers a unique opportunity for buyers to acquire original, postcard-sized artwork for less than a round of cocktails (give or take a martini). Offered on a first-come, first-served basis, each piece is exhibited anonymously, and the identity of the artist is revealed only after the work is purchased. With the playing field leveled, all participants can take home a piece by a famous artist, or one who's just making his/her debut in the art world. Nonetheless, collectors walk away with something beautiful, a piece of art they love.
Most importantly, by participating in Postcards From the Edge, artists and collectors support the activities of Visual AIDS, enabling the organization to produce AIDS-focused contemporary art programs and provide supplies and assistance to artists living with HIV/AIDS, many who are unable to continue producing work without such support. All Postcards From the Edge proceeds support the programs of Visual AIDS.
Postcards From the Edge is typically held each winter season, and has been hosted by various esteemed galleries (see below). Please check back in here for updates on dates and location.
