Live! It's Saturday Night

And we've been posting some of the Leftovers VI prints in the order we received them. To date, there are at least 90 more to show, so hop on over to our facebook page and check them out. Once we get them all posted in preparation for our exhibition and then the Silent Auction for Hunger Relief we'll put them up for all to see.

Check 'em out here https://www.facebook.com/Wingtip-Press-63513546416

Here's one from Brandon Sanderson, North Carolina

Leftovers VI. Let the Party Begin

Over 100 prints came in for Leftovers 6. You'll soon be receiving your prints as they are ready to go.
We're waiting for the postcards from Ming Gallery who's hosting our auction and exhibition in a few weeks.  Six of the prints were chosen to grace the cover of Boise's weekly arts magazine as you will see in the link below. http://www.boiseweekly.com/boise/leftovers-vi-supporting-idaho-hunger-relief-task-force/Content?oid=3754644

Here's the deal

This is Wingtip Press' sixth year of hosting our Leftovers print exchange. It started when we were cleaning out our flatfiles years ago and wondering what to do with all those little scraps of paper that were jamming up the drawers. We figured we weren't the only one with such delicious problems, so we invited a few printmaking pals to create prints from their scraps. Since then we've exhibited prints around the world, made new friends and expanded our collection of extraordinary prints.

All the details are in the previous post, so give us a shout - with an email to info@wingtippress.com to reserve a place at the table.


Leftovers Six, 6, VI, Yes SIX!

We got a bit behind in 2015. We moved - and we're planning another move one by the end of 2015. But that's not stopping us from sending out the call for Leftovers VI.  (We know - finally, right?) And we've got some new ideas about how you can get the most bang from your press.  In the past, Wingtip Press has been very successful in arranging multiple international exhibitions for your prints and we will always make sure that happens. We've also been able to secure the front page of a weekly arts publication featuring a handful of each year's submissions. But it's been at the expense of not having those prints available for either our exhibitions or auction for hunger relief - and our amazing auction has been the one to suffer.  We've already arranged to get the cover again this year, and we're also negotiating for a story in some regional publications and we don't want our exhibitions, our exchange - or our auction to suffer. So, we've decided to suggest an alternative to the 14 prints: If you're interested in being considered for the various publications we are hoping to be featured in, we hope you will consider adding an additional print to make a total of 15 prints for the  Leftovers VI exchange.  If your print is selected, we promise to secure copies of the publications for you and feature them on our website and this blog.

We've always left the subject matter up to you and it is certainly your decision.  We will say that our auction raises funds and consciousness about food safety and accessibility, so images that relate to the theme of food, farming, production, distribution, hunger, wholesomeness, food safety, local farmers markets, ingredients, dining or even your favorite kitchen utensil have a soft spot in our hearts. But, PLEASE, express yourself in whatever way you choose. We have a blast with all of this - from sending out the call, to relishing our trips to the mailbox, to carefully packaging each participants prints,  to exhibiting them and attaching the stamps that take them to you and around the world and back again.

So, here's the scoop!

We will send you the submission form when you send us your RSVP!

Boun appetito!



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!
