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.
