Has it really been since March that we posted?  Yikes, and oops. I believe that's right. Well, here in a nutshell is an update. The Leftovers V  prints have already travelled to Applestick Contemporary Gallery in Balnarring, Australia and to Wharepuke Gallery in New Zealand.  The truth being: the Southern Hemisphere has had a much better chance of seeing all these tasty morsels than you've had.

And, sadly, that's because we've bitten off more that we can chew this year.  We definitely plan to get the prints up on this site. But, meanwhile, if you're interested, head on over to Wingtip's facebook page and you'll get a taste of what we're talking about.  And just to sweeten our delinquency, here's a delicious, delectable print by Marsha Shaw.  Mmmmmmmmm.

Now head on over to Wingtip's  facebook page and do a little scrolling!



This is a rather different kind of Leftover. It's a bucket of Trader Joe's peanut butter cups that is sitting on my hospital tray. I've been  in the hospital here in Boiz-wah for nearly two weeks and have a few more days before discharge,  I had a serious car accident, totaled my 1998 Honda Civic and have broken my hip and pelvis and won't be walking for at least 60 days and then will still need assistance until my muscles in my left leg develop more strength.

Ugh! But I hear many Leftovers V prints have arrived and I expect to have them all in by April 15.  I
can't wait to get back in my studio as one of my great pleasures is opening each package that arrives.
We've got an exhibition scheduled for August at Applestick Contemporary Art in Balnarring, Australia and on to Atelier 6000 in Bend, Oregon in October and of course, we will exhibit them at Wingtip Press, too!

The title of this entry is GRATITUDE, I have learned a lot about gratitude the last few weeks and extend my gratitude to all of you for supporting Leftovers!


Faster than the speed of lightening

Or maybe faster than lightening. Lickity split! Leftovers have already arrived on our doorstep. The first edition all the way from Wales! And you can get a peek at them here on Melanie Ezra's blog - which you should be following anyway!

But don't let that deter you. We have until April 15.  So relax, you've got plenty of time!

We ought to be in pictures

And we are! We've been so lucky with good press the last few days. Our major newspaper, the Idaho Statesman wrote an article about our auction and included a photo of the print by Kam Kelley of Boise.
And, they called Wingtip Press one of the coolest places in downtown Boise.  And if that wasn't enough, we got the cover of the Boise Weekly today. The Weekly is our Arts magazine and they feature local artist's work on the cover each week.  They had a hard time just picking one and ended up with a composite of 8 prints.  Here it is! And congratulations to Meredith Buschow of Texas, Mary Donato of Boise, Idaho, Sandy Craig of Wales, Jennifer Mecham of Carey, Idaho, Alex Wonder of Boise, Idaho, Beth Layton of Boise, Idaho, Lisa Flowers Ross of Boise, Idaho and Kyoko Imazu of Australia!

You make us look good!


Five Years!

It was the day after Thanksgiving in 2009 when we were cleaning out the flatfiles, finding all those remnants of beautiful paper when the idea and title for Leftovers came to mind. The day after Thanksgiving is pretty much always about the leftovers.  In fact, NPR did two stories today about what to do with all those luscious tidbits and morsels from the traditional Thanksgiving feast. So, it seems appropriate that  today, Black Friday - the day invented by retailers to seduce consumers to their stores with "this day only" discounts - we decided to get out of the studio (and kitchen) and head downtown to Macy's. But not for Black Friday shopping. Oh no.  We gathered a crew of local leftover printmakers together for installing the exhibition set of Leftovers IV in the Macy's windows so all those Black Friday shoppers can see what's up at Wingtip Press. We're hoping they'll be enticed to stop by next week to participate in our Silent Auction for Hunger Relief.
