Starting this Friday 29th January 2016 through to 31st, it's Visual AIDS's fantastic Postcards From The Edge show.
Visual AIDS uses all of the proceeds from the sale of small 4" X 6" postcard sized paintings to help prevent HIV from spreading and to help others who have already contracted and are suffering from this terrible disease.
I've been supporting Visual AIDS since 2012 and producing artwork for them since the 2012 Postcards from the Edge show.
"It's time for NYC's most popular art event of the year - Postcards from the Edge, All artwork is displayed anonymously, and the artist's name are only revealed after purchase. All postcard sized artworks are $85 each and sold first-come, first-served. With more than 1600 works going on display, you're guaranteed to find something you love - all while supporting the programs of Visual AIDS."
The 4" X 6" painting that I am exhibiting this year at PFTE is
I'll Support You!.
"Visual AIDS was founded in 1988 to address the devastation of the AIDS crises on the arts community. Visual AIDS strives to represent a diversity of voices along the HIV spectrum by presenting exhibitions, public events, publications and artist projects to raise AIDS awareness and provoke dialogue... we are poised to contemplate the deep history of art activism, examine current relationships between HIV and art, and position future conversations that are public, inclusive, and accessible"
"Postcards From The Edge is a unique benefit show and sale of original, postcard-size artworks on paper by established and emerging artists. All artwork is exhibited anonymously, and the identity of the artist is revealed only after the work is purchased. This beloved community benefit for Visual AID showcase more than 1500 original, postcard-sized works are donated by renowned and emerging artists. All works are sold for $85 each - the creative twist is all works are displayed anonymously and the artist's name is only revealed after purchase. Whether you walk away with a piece created by a famous artist or discover someone new, everyone finds something they love at Postcards from the Edge, while supporting the important programs of Visual AIDS."
