Around Town : Postcards from the Edge

Posted by

Although December is one of our busiest months around the TV studio, at the suggestion of set stylist Chip Glynn, a group of us took some time after work to create mini pieces of art. These postcard-size pieces were specifically made for donation to 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.

The sale of the artwork is this weekend, and since the idea is that the artist remains anonymous until the piece is purchased I am leaving names off the photos.  If you are in the New York City area, it's an a great opportunity to purchase original works of art by established and emerging artist with proceeds supporting a good cause.
