I made this little linocut to be part of an exchange put on by Amy of Wingtip Press. You make 14 small prints and send them to her in Idaho. You get 12 prints made by other people in return and she uses the extra two for exhibitions and to raise money for hunger relief.
Here's a drawer full of prints I need to paint! (I never make this many in one go, so it's kind of exciting for me.)
And here's the info on the exchange if you want to participate:
Yes, it's time for Leftovers again!
As you may recall - and for those of you who are new this year - this print exchange developed as a result of cleaning out the flat files and wondering what to do with all those precious, little, leftover scraps of printmaking paper that we just couldn't bear to toss but were really jamming up the drawers. I got an idea to create a print exchange asking people to use their leftover scraps to create an edition of 14 prints and receive 12 in return. Last year we had 120 artists participate and we've had three exhibition to date. AND (drum roll, please) they're headed to Wharepuke Gallery in Kerikeri, New Zealand in March 2012! And the really, most sincerely, good news is the funds raised from our first silent auction held last week will help the Hunger Relief Task force ensure food safety and hunger relief for a whole lot of hungry people.
So, please gather all your scraps for Leftovers III. Here's the scoop:
Prints: 14 (you'll get 12 in return, we keep one for exhibitions and one to raise funds for those who need our leftovers)
Size: Up to 5" x 7" - can be smaller, but NO larger please!
Due Date: March 15, 2012
Ship to: Wingtip Press
6940 Butte Court
Boise, ID 83704
Please advise by return email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the good news that you wish to participate.
And please invite other printmakers to join us!
I will be keeping track of our progress on the Leftovers blog again this year: www.leftoversanyone.blogspot.com
May you always, and evermore, have Leftovers,
