By using new technology, Daylighted transforms places such as hotels and restaurants into digital art galleries and offer them an opportunity to easily display and sell an exclusive collection of art from worldwide and local artists.

Valun, 2015

The pretty seaside hamlet of Valun, 14km southwest of Cres Town, is secluded at the foot of cliffs and surrounded by pebbly beaches. It’s appeal lies in its tranquillity: its restaurants are rarely crowded, and there’s a refreshing lack of souvenir stalls or touristy tack. … more on The Lonely Planet

Artwork Sold at Postcards from the Edge

Dear Brut,

Thank you for participating in the 18th annual Postcards from the Edge benefit for Visual AIDS, held January 29-31, 2016 at Sikkema Jenkins & Co. Your donation helped make the show and sale incredibly successful! To date, the benefit raised over $113,000, all to support the mission of Visual AIDS: utilizing art to fight AIDS by provoking dialogue, supporting HIV+ artists, and preserving a legacy — because AIDS IS NOT OVER!

The benefit included the display of every artwork submitted. 1,504 postcard-sized works by artists from all around the world were viewed by over 1,000 people.

We appreciate your ongoing support. Artists’ generosity has always enabled Visual AIDS to work between contemporary art and AIDS advocacy. With your help, this season we will provide more Material Grants to HIV-positive artists, expand our online Artist Registry, distribute new artist-designed AIDS Awareness editions, and produce more AIDS-focused exhibitions, events, and publications. If you can help Visual AIDS by making an additional contribution, please visit: you once again.

All the best,

Esther McGowan
Associate Director

Postcards from the Edge

Postcards from the Edge 2016January 29-31, 2016
Hosted by Sikkema Jenkins & Co
530 West 22nd Street, New York, NY, 10011

Since 1998, Visual AIDS has produced the annual Postcards From The Edge exhibition and benefit sale of original, postcard-sized works on paper by established and emerging artists.

Known within the art world as the most exciting and affordable way to add to a collection, Postcards From the Edge offers a unique opportunity for buyers to acquire original, postcard-sized artwork for ONLY $85 EACH (less than a round of cocktails – give or take a Martini). 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 levelled, all participants can take home a piece by a famous artist, or one who’s just making their début in the art world. Nonetheless, collectors walk away with something beautiful, a piece of art they love!
