Since 1998, Visual AIDS has produced the annual Postcards From The Edge exhibition and benefit sale of original, postcard-sized works on paper by established and emerging artists.
This year's event, hosted by Metro Pictures, will take place January 13-15, 2017. The Preview Party will be January 13, 2017 6-8pm (tickets available here), and the benefit sale will take place January 14-15, 2017.
Known within the art world 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 ONLY $85 EACH (less than a round of cocktails - give or take a martini). Offered on a first-come, first-served basis, over 1500 works are 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 their debut in the art world. Nonetheless, collectors walk away with something beautiful, a piece of art they love!
Deadline to submit artwork has closed, but all are welcome to attend.
The Preview Party is the only chance to view the complete exhibition. Guests receive a list of all participating artists, however they do not know who created which piece. Artists’ names are only revealed after purchase. The Benefit Sale is first come, first served, all works are sold for $85 each.
