A close up of the painting by L. E. Gav Thorpe titled Inspection
This is a 4" X 6" Oil on canvas paper painting and isn't for sale on this site as it is now owned by Roger Emmett Braimon in New York, USA and was sold in support of this years Postcards From The Edge exhibition by Visual AIDS. The Visual AIDS exhibition began on January 24th through to January 26th 2014 and all of the proceeds that were made from the sale of small 4" X 6" postcard style paintings are going to be used to help with HIV and AIDS prevention and to also help artists who are suffering from the disease. In total 1,317 postcard sized works were exhibited and 1,000s of people attended the exhibition over the blustery wintery weekend. Visual AIDS raised the most that they ever have ever made from this benefit which is an amazing $102,000.

What is Visual AIDS?

"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 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.

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." -visualaids.org

The exhibition took place at Luhring Augustine, 531 West 24th Street, New York, NY, 10011, USA on the 25th and 26th on January 2014, with a preview show on 24th January between 5 to 8pm.
