Postmark Deadline for Artwork: November 22nd, 2021

Visual AIDS invites you to participate in our 24th Annual Postcards from the Edge benefit, a unique benefit show and sale of original, postcard-size artworks by established and emerging artists. All artwork is exhibited anonymously, and the identity of the artist is revealed only after the work is purchased. It is not only a highlight of the art world each year for artists and collectors, but also provides essential funding to help us carry out our mission and programming.

Due to the uncertainties of Delta Variant and in consideration of the health of our community, we will hold Postcards from the Edge as a VIRTUAL event once again from January 8-14, 2022. We anticipate that we will return to an in-person event in January 2023.

Last year for our first virtual event, we received 1,069 artworks submitted from 25 countries. From here in the U.S., we received submissions from 38 states and the District of Columbia. Our online sale last year made it possible for art collectors throughout the US to purchase artworks for the first time, and it was a resounding success. We sold over 700 artworks in the first two hours of the sale, and sold out over the course of the weekend! This year, we are thrilled to be opening the sale to NATIONAL AND INTERNATIONAL ART COLLECTORS, the largest pool of art collectors EVER for Postcards from the Edge.
