Postcards from the Edge Benefit

Visual AIDS Postcards from the Edge is an annual benefit exhibition and sale. This year the event will take place at the James Cohan Gallery in New York.
This is what they write about the event:
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. Recognized as one of the most exciting and affordable ways to build a collection of internationally renowned as well as emerging artists, all works are sold on a first-come, first-served basis. The works are signed on the back and exhibited so the artists' signatures cannot be seen. While buyers receive a list of all participating artists, they don't know who created which piece until purchased. Collectors may pick a piece by their favorite, famous artist or a work by someone they don't know yet. Their purchase of original works of art supports the important work of Visual AIDS.

The deadline for this year is November 9. By donating a postcard size work you will not only support the important work of visual AIDS you are also in very good company with artists like Louise Bourgeois, Robert Gober, Jack Pierson, Kiki Smith, Rirkrit Tiravanija, Ed Ruscha, Tom Wesselman, William Wegman, Richard Prince and many many more.
By the way, the photo I donated last year was purchased by Michael Steinberg Fine Art, New York.
