The Continuous Line is an exquisite corpse project founded by
Roberta Restaino http://robertarestaino.com & Renate Mairie:
we aim to realize a series of "continuous" prints that speak collectively as well as individually through drawing, technology, and ultimately, printmaking. Our first project uses the exquisite corpse model in conjunction with screen printing.
the first artist creates a drawing (analog or digital) in 8 1/2 x 11 format;
the next artist will receive a small strip of one edge of the first artist drawing to respond to;
the next artist will receive a small strip of one edge of the second artist drawing to respond to...
drawings will be converted to larger-sized screen prints & printed onto fine art paper for exhibition
* stay tuned for 2021 exhibition site(s) as we navigate COVID circumstances *
As the project unfolds, exhibition venues will allow for further collaborative interaction, involving the public, artists, and patrons of the arts.
Future plans to offer mini collections of drawings for sale (as artists permit) in conjunction with exhibition sites are in the works. Initial print sales will serve as a fundraising for exhibition site(s), costs of printing as well as to raise funds for the capital expansion and (future) printmaking studio at
Studio Arts Boulder
--whose vision is to provide studio arts education to all,
to be located at the northeast gateway in Boulder Colorado.
More information on the Studio Arts Boulder capital expansion project can be found here: http://www.studioartsboulder.org/expansion/
CLPC also aims to represent artists and printmakers as a collective, offering opportunities to participate in sale events, teach (or take) workshops, dialogue about innovative/best practices in printmaking, as well as engagement in community promotion of individual and collaborative works. COVID has put on hold these endeavors --with the exception of collaboration so join our drawing project anytime!
