Dear Fleisher: 4 x 6 Inches of Art

This weekend, you can pick up some great art bargains (including pieces by Jim and Kate Mundie) at Dear Fleisher, 4 x 6 Inches of Art, the third biennial invitational exhibition and sale of original art to benefit Fleisher's education and exhibition programs.

Dear Fleisher 2008 features original art in postcard size (4 x 6 inches) in a range of media. In keeping with Fleisher's mission of access for all, each piece is priced at $50.00 and sold on a first-come, first-served basis — with no presales. Each postcard is signed on the back, keeping the artist's identity a surprise until after the sale and allowing viewers the pleasure of focusing on the strength of the work itself.

This year promises to be bigger and better than ever, with over 350 artists donating nearly 700 original works of art. I did get a bit of a peek at the work yesterday (though not the identities of the artists) and I can say that it's quite an impressive selection of artwork this year.

The melee begins at 4:00 PM on Sunday, October 5th - but hundreds of people start lining up to get in long before that because it's a first-come-first-served kind of affair. Image the midnight release of a new Harry Potter book, but with art.
