Visual AIDS, New York's premier not-for-profit organization working to increase and support dialog between AIDS research and activism and the visual arts hosts its tenth annual Postcards from the Edge fund raiser preview party tonight at James Cohan Gallery in Chelsea. Tickets to the party are $75 and include a raffle ticket with a chance to win any single artwork of the more than 1000 offered for sale this weekend. The remainder of the postcard-sized artworks will be sold at $75 a piece starting on Saturday, World AIDS day, and continuing through Sunday. The benefit offers a unique opportunity for collectors to pick up small, affordable works while supporting this tremendous nonprofit. The proceeds from the preview party tonight will of course go directly and completely to Visual AIDS, and offer supporters of the organization a sneak peak at the postcards going on sale over the weekend. Each work offered over the weekend will be exhibited anonymously, and the identity of the artist will only be released upon the work's sale. The list of artists who have donated work, a cross-generational and impressive roster, is available on Visual AIDS's website.
