Postcards From the Edge
Visual AIDS Annual Benefit Show and Sale

November 5, 2000 from 2:00 PM to 5:30 PM
Andrew Kreps Gallery
516A West 20th Street, New York, NY 
Buy one of over 300 original works by established and
emerging artists for just $50; contribute to Visual
AIDS' awareness and support programs. 

POSTCARDS FROM THE EDGE is Visual AIDS' annual benefit
show and sale of postcard-sized works on paper by
established and emerging artists. This year Vito
Acconci, Ricci Albenda, Polly Apfelbaum, Aziz +
Cucher, Barton Benes, Ross Bleckner, Jeanne Dunning,

the 3rd annual event at his new gallery space in
Chelsea. 

All Postcards from the Edge works are priced at $50
and sold* on a first come, first served basis --
sorry, no previews. At the event, the work is
exhibited so that the artists' signatures cannot be
seen. Buyers have a list of participating artists, but
they do not know who created which piece. A collector
might end up with a work by a famous artist or
discover someone new. 

All Postcards from the Edge proceeds -- 100% of all
sales -- go to support the programs of Visual AIDS.
Founded in 1988 by artists and activists, Visual AIDS
promotes AIDS awareness through visual arts. Two
Visual AIDS initiatives, the Red Ribbon and Day
Without Art, have become icons of AIDS awareness.
Visual AIDS also supports artists with HIV/AIDS by
providing services including free photo-documentation
of artwork, a slide registry, materials grants to
those with low incomes, estate planning services,
exhibition opportunities, professional development,
advice and advocacy. For more information on Visual
AIDS' programs, please visit:

* Cash and checks (with photo ID) accepted only.
