I made a special miniature, reversed and adapted version of my new “Lost Rainbow” print just so I could send it into this year’s edition of Postcards from the Edge. Which means that someone with sharp eyes will take it home for $85 and support a good cause to boot. But even if the little rainbow I made stays lost, they’ll wind up with something fantastic; there’s a lot of beautiful stuff in this fundraiser.
Hosted by Visual AIDS at Gallery 524

Over 1,400 original postcard-sized artworks!
Postcards From the Edge offers a rare opportunity to acquire original, postcard-sized artwork from internationally renowned and emerging artists for only $85 each. Offered on a first-come, first-served basis, over 1400 works are 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 their debut in the art world. Nonetheless, collectors walk away with something beautiful, a piece of art they love!
I love these photos of your small postcard prints in your own homes. The 5 by 7 inch size does make them fit in anywhere. And it is so cool to see them framed! But that is totally optional.

Directions for getting there
Proteus Gowanus bills itself as an interdisciplinary gallery and a reading room. I would add that it is an example of genius in the fully unpacked meaning of the word: brilliant and complete unto itself, the project is also very much of its place and generous of spirit. It is worth the trip. Go visit and be nudged, inspired, and informed.
There will be fifteen artists participating in this exhibit, along with an artist-in-residence, several correspondents, and a new blog called Proteoscope. Take a look around the Proteus Gowanus website for more information about the many avenues by which the Migration theme will be traveled.
