Postcards From the Edge is a show and sale of original, postcard-sized artworks on paper by established and emerging artists. Offered on a first-come, first-served basis, each piece is exhibited anonymously, and the identity of the artist is revealed only after the work is purchased. With the playing field leveled, all participants can take home a piece by a famous artist, or one who’s just making his/her debut in the art world. Nonetheless, collectors walk away with something beautiful, a piece of art they love. For more details, visit this website

Attention Artists!
DEADLINE: Wednesday, December 10, 2008
They are looking for artists to donate a 4" x 6" original work on paper for the exhibition and sale. Painting, drawing, photography, printmaking and mixed media are all welcome. If you would like to participate in Postcards From the Edge, download submission forms at this website.

I always participate in this fundraiser and encourage all of you to do as well.

Go see this today in DC

I'm hearing good tings about the inaugural Ten Miles Square photography exhibit, "Move Along," featuring work by Tracy Clayton, Katy Ray, Matt Smith and Pat Padua. It's at BloomBars.

BloomBars is rapidly getting a rep as being one of the coolest hot spots in DC and it is located at 3222 11th St NW, next to Wonderland Ballroom. Today Sunday, roll up between noon and 4 p.m. for the last day of the show.
