Postcards from the Edge

Call to Participate: Postcards from the Edge 2018

Host Gallery & Dates to be Announced Soon! 
Postmark Deadline for Artwork: December 4, 2017

 2018 will mark the 20th anniversary of Visual AIDS' benefit art sale and we hope that you will participate.

All of us at Visual AIDS realize how lucky we are to be surrounded by a community of caring and committed artists and activists, and it is clear that our social justice mission has become even more important over the past year. It is also clear that the support of artists like you will be even more vital to the success of our work.

With this in mind, we want to express our gratitude to those who have participated in Postcards from the Edge, and
we hope you will wish to participate again this year. We also would like to express a warm welcome to those who will participate for the first time this year.

The 2018 venue and dates will be announced soon, along with exciting special events and partnerships for the 20th anniversary. To ensure that artists have enough time to create original work, we are sharing the guidelines for submission now so that you can get started. 

Create or attach an original artwork on any 4"x6” heavy weight paper. Drawings, photographs, paintings, printmaking, and mixed media are welcome. ONE ENTRY per artist. If you are in NYC and would like a blank postcard, stop by our office to pick one up.

For complete guidelines, information on mailing artwork, and to download the submission form, visit the Visual AIDS

PFTE is one of our most important fundraisers of the year, and its success will allow us to produce important art activism projects in 2018. By participating, artists support our mission, enabling us to produce AIDS-focused contemporary art programs and provide supplies and assistance to artists living with HIV/AIDS, many of whom are unable to continue producing work without such support.
