"Wish You Were Here 9" includes original works by more than 400 artists. The 4” x 6” artworks, as well as diptychs and triptychs based on this size, are created and donated by A.I.R. Gallery Artists and hundreds of other national and international artists. These cards range widely in style and media and encompass a broad spectrum of themes. Each card is signed and dated, often with a message from the artist to the collector. All 4” x 6” art works are priced at $40 each, with diptychs priced at $80 and triptychs at $120.

"Wish You Were Here 9" will also highlight a print donated by Kiki Smith and an ink drawing on a sea grape leaf by Mary Frank. These works will be available through silent auction. Please contact the gallery for more information or to bid on a work. The proceeds from this exhibition of postcard-sized works support our mission to advance the status of women in the arts and benefit the A.I.R. Fellowship Program for Emerging and Underrepresented Artists.
