DiMaggio. Warhol. John Lennon. Autism Fundraiser at Edgeware Gallery in San Diego December 4, 2010

Edgeware Gallery will have a unique exhibition for the holiday season "Christmas in New York: Art and Artifacts”. The offbeat show will feature art, photos, artifacts, and collectibles from the 1940's, 50's and 60's including Baseball cards and kitschy Life Magazine ads. 100% of the net profits benefit autism research. First 50 patrons on December 4 receive a free "I Love NY" T shirt.

San Diego, CA, December 2, 2010 -- On December 04, 2010, from 5:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m., Edgeware Gallery in San Diego will have the opening night reception for its Christmas in New York: Art and Artifacts exhibition to benefit autism. The exhibition runs through January 1, 2011.

As befitting the “art and artifacts” subtitle, the show is a potpourri of artwork (from local artists to Andy Warhol), photographs (featuring photographers from San Diego, New York and Paris ), memorabilia (including baseball cards and Life Magazine ads of such legendary Yankee and Brooklyn Dodger legends as Joe Dimaggio, Mickey Mantle and Sandy Koufax), and of course artifacts – including an actual shutter from the Chelsea Hotel.

There is no admission charge for this hybrid of a gallery show and an oddball museum, and as an added bonus, the first 50 visitors on opening night will receive an "I Love NY" T-shirt. The gift shop will feature a variety of art-related Christmas gifts including original art, jewelry, art books, notecards, arty T-shirts, Life Magazines from the 40’s, 50’s and 60’s and other collectibles.

100% of the net profits from art and gift shop sales benefit autism research.
