The Postcards From the Edge show
begins Friday 24th January 2014



On this Friday 24th January 2014 the Postcards From The Edge exhibition in support of Visual AIDS will begin, with a full preview show of all works starting at 5pm. The Visual AIDS exhibition takes all of the proceeds that are made from the sale of small 4" X 6" postcard style paintings and uses this to help with HIV and AIDS prevention and to help those who are already suffering from this disease.





The 4" X 6" oil on canvas paper painting that I am exhibiting at Postcards From The Edge is 

Inspection.



What is Visual AIDS and Postcards From The Edge?

Visual AIDS
"Visual AIDS was founded in 1988 to address the devastation of the AIDS crises on the arts community while impacting change through art, with such initiatives as Day With(out) Art and the creation of the Red Ribbon. Since the mid-90's, it’s not only medical advances that have helped artists living with HIV continue to survive, it’s the power of art that allows many to thrive. Our programs include grants to artists living with HIV+, working with estates to preserve artistic legacies, and using the online Artist Registry to promote the work of our artist members. 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" -visualaids.org

Postcards From The Edge
"Postcards From The Edge is the beloved community benefit for Visual AIDS. Over 1300 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." -visualaids.org

The exhibition is being hosted by Luhring Augustine, 531 West 24th Street, New York, N.Y., 10011, USA.

The Postcards From The Edge exhibition in support of Visual AIDS was a huge success. Even though outside the weather was cold and blustery thousands of people attended over weekend. In total there were 1,317 postcard-sized works on display by artists from all around the world, and to date from this event alone Visual AIDS has raised an amazing $102,000!

The 4" X 6" oil on canvas paper painting that I exhibited at Postcards From The Edge titled Inspection was purchased by the New York based artist Roger Emmett Braimon.
