Wayne Kleppe is an artist I have known and respected for many years. When I first taught litho at the SMFA, he was my TA! (Oh that memory makes me feel old…) He is a very skilled, articulate, passionate and well-studied printmaker, originally from Philadelphia. Recently, Proyecto ‘ace in Buenos Aires, Argentina, extended an invitation to him to do a 2 month residency there, creating a site specific installation in their gallery in the summer of 2012. Wayne has started a fundraising campaign on Kickstarter to help with travel and living expenses while he is in Buenos Aires, as well as the residency fee. Wayne is all kinds of awesome and I hope anyone reading this will join me in supporting him.
