Tonight, in observance of World AIDS day, Sikkema Jenkins & Co. will be hosting a preview party for the annual Visual AIDS benefit exhibition, "Postcards from the Edge." Party attendees can get a sneak peek of the 1,500-plus pint-size artworks while they're still all together in the gallery (the cards start disappearing at noon tomorrow, when they go on sale to the public). They're priced at $75 each, and all proceeds go to providing services for artists living with HIV/AIDS. It's a pretty sweet deal: You could be taking home a Yoko Ono or a Vito Acconci, but you'll only know who made it once the piece comes off the wall (they're displayed anonymously). Sales are first-come, first-served, so if you want the pick of the litter, get there early on Saturday. Benefit preview (6--8pm) is $75; admission to the gallery sale (Sat noon--6pm and Sun noon--4pm) is a suggested donation of $5. For more info, visit visualaids.org. Sikkema Jenkins & Co., 530 W 22nd St between Tenth and Eleventh Aves (212-929-2262). Subway: C, E to 23rd St.
