If you're in New York City during the weekend of January 7 - 9, you should swing by CRG Gallery for Postcards From the Edge, a benefit for Visual AIDS.
Postcards From the Edge is a Visual AIDS benefit show and sale of original, postcard-sized works on paper by established 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 programs of Visual AIDS.There are over 1,500 one-of-a-kind postcards from artists like John Baldessari, Jeff Koons, Yoko Ono, Vito Acconci and many more which means your $85 could be quite an investment, all for a really, really great cause.
Visual AIDS is the only contemporary arts organization fully committed to HIV prevention and AIDS awareness through producing and presenting visual art projects, while assisting artists living with HIV/AIDS. We are committed to preserving and honoring the work of artists with HIV/AIDS and the artistic contributions of the AIDS movement.I heard about it from Robert Yoder, so I'm guessing he also sent in a postcard. (I'd love to grab a Robert Yoder original for $85!)
