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.

"My drawings are primarily meant for guys who may have experienced misunderstanding and oppression and feel that they have somehow failed in their lives. I want to encourage them. I want to encourage this minority group, to tell them not to give up, to think positively about their act and whole being." (1990) — Tom of Finland
