International Print Exchange Wingtip Press
Leftovers II International Print Exchange After cleaning out flat files and finding dozens of little scraps of printmaking papers jamming up the file drawers, the folks at Wingtip Press (Boise, Idaho, USA) realised they probably weren’t alone with the dilemma of what to do with all those too- precious-to-toss leftover scraps. An invitation went out to fellow printmakers to participate in a print exchange and to use all those lovely little leftovers to create a small edition of prints. Leftovers II is created by 120 artists from Afghanistan to Arizona, Canada to Colorado, Ireland to Iowa, Singapore to South Carolina, Wales to Washington and places in between – each participant created 14 prints and received 12 in exchange. One was retained for exhibition and the other went to auction where the proceeds were donated to an agency that accepts donations of leftover items to support those in need.
