Postcards from the Edge @ ZieherSmith

Kunstraum Richard Sorge artists contributed to this year's Postcards from the Edge benefit exhibition for Visual AIDS. Tulip Enterprises, over painted book leaf.

 

"It has been noted that if you should participate in only one benefit a year as an artist, this should be the one. Few people organizing benefits using art can match the sensibility, professionalism and generosity of the Postcards from the Edge crew."

This year the benefit exhibition takes place from January 8-10, 2010 at ZieherSmith 516 West 20th Street (btw 10th & 11th Avenues), NYC.

 

Postcards From the Edge is a Visual AIDS benefit show and sale of original, postcard-sized works on paper by both famous and 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. All proceeds support the work of Visual AIDS.

 

Visual AIDS utilizes art to fight AIDS by provoking dialogue, supporting HIV+ artists, and preserving the legacy -- because AIDS IS NOT OVER!
