Print Boise

I locked my bike and walked across the street, ready to get out of the heat. I pulled open the large red door and stepped into the white room. Lines were strung across the room. Tiny clothespins held delicate sheets of uniform rectangular paper. It looked like a multitude of Tibetan prayer flags, but they weren’t. These were impressions of Boise.

Kitchen Corner Series

On the counter sits a Mason jar filled with dried cranberries. Next to it a smaller jar holds almonds. Both waiting in the kitchen, ready to provide a quick snack to the hungry passerby. Small scenes like this in the kitchen are inspiration for my Kitchen Corner series, a series of linocut prints started for the Leftovers Print Exchange.

Leftovers VII - Idaho Artists

There are some food leftovers that I look forward to having the next day as much as the first. But I am always excited for the Leftovers Print exchange hosted each year by Wingtip Press. This year was Leftovers VII and an exhibition was held at MING Studios earlier this year in May.

Leftovers Auction

As I walked in the door, piles of original prints laid on tables all around the room. Almost 100 of them! I could not wait to get my eyes on them. Linocuts, etchings, woodcuts, chine collĂ©, lithographs, solar plate prints, drypoint and more – a smorgasbord of prints. And I was there to help sort them all out.

Leftovers VI – US

Today, the Leftovers prints I am showing are from artists in the US, outside of Idaho.

It is so fun for me to see all the different prints that come from all over the world and all the different types of prints. Since I still feel like I’m “new” to print making, it is almost like a study collection. I often do look back over all six years of prints I received and try to figure out how they were done.

Don’t forget you can see all of this year’s prints at Ming Studios tomorrow from 5 – 10 p.m.

Leftovers VI Prints - Boise

I promised I would show you the prints I received from the Leftovers VI print exchange hosted by Wingtip Press. This is a good week to reveal them as the silent auction of one of each of all the prints submitted will be held this Friday at Ming Studios in downtown Boise from 3 p.m. – 10 p.m.

For my 12 prints, I have a variety. Today I will start off with prints made from our very own Boise locals. I will continue to show different groupings as the week goes on.
