Postcards From the Edge is a show and sale of original, postcard-sized artworks on paper by established and emerging artists.

All artworks will be priced at $75 and sold on a first-come, first-served basis. The works are signed on the back and exhibited so that the artists' signatures cannot be seen. While the buyers have a list of participating artists, they don't know who created which piece until it is purchased and the signature is revealed. A collector might end up with a work by a famous artist or by someone they don't yet know.

Either way, they walk away with a great piece of art while supporting Visual AIDS's important work.

No work will be for sale on the Preview Night, however one lucky raffle winner will be able to select any artwork that evening before anyone else! $75 cover, additional raffle tickets $25, open bar, participating artists can attend free.

HAPPY SEXUALITY
“In those days, a gay man was made to feel nothing but shame about his feelings and his sexuality. I wanted my drawings to counteract that, to show gay men being happy and positive about who they were. Oh, I didn’t sit down to think this all out carefully. But I knew — right from the start — that my men were going to be proud and happy men!"
