The 11th Annual Postcards From the Edge

On view: January 9-10, 2009

Exhibition and sale of original, postcard-sized artworks by established and emerging artists. Artworks are $75 and sold on a first-come, first-served basis. The artists are not revealed until the work is sold, so a collector might end up with a piece by a famous artist or one they don’t yet know. Either way, they walk away with a great piece of art while supporting the important work of Visual AIDS.

Carla’s mixed media collage, Personal Peace Mini Flower Garden III, will be on view and available for sale (pictured here).
