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.

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

Over 1500 postcard sized artworks will be displayed, proceeds benefit Visual Aids - the only contemporary art organization fully committed to HIV prevention and AIDS awareness through producing and presenting visual art projects, while assisting artists living with HIV/AIDS.

Join CPW for a very special portfolio review event where you’ll have the opportunity to show your work to some of the most distinguished and important professionals in photography today. Held in NYC, in a supportive setting, you will have your work reviewed by five noted luminaries in one-on-one twenty-minute sessions.

Testimonies from last year’s participants included: “great feedback by committed and engaged reviewers”, “informative and inspirational”, “one-of-a-kind, unpretentious, and fun”, “a great place to trade ideas”, “encouraging, helpful, and insightful”, “I got what I was looking for and made connections”, “open minded, honest, and thoughtful”, “it changed me and helps break barriers to the NY art world”.

The reviewers in the DECEMBER will include Debra Klomp Ching, co-owner of the KlompChing Gallery, Rick Wester, founder of Rick Wester Fine Art, Ruben Natal-San Miguel, Editor in Chief of the ARTmostfierce Arts Blog, Rebecca Horne of Discover Magazine, and Craig Cohen, Executive Publisher at powerHouse books. Additionally a representative from CPW will also be reviewing work at each session.
