Artist in Residence Roberta Restaino @ Firehouse Art Center. Jan 30-March 2

Family Fun

Working in traditional printmaking and creative construction, Restaino will use her time in the Residency to work on her own invention: an imaginative take on historical catalogues of natural history she has named the Encyclopedia of the Anthropocene. “Anthropocene”—from anthropo, for “man,” and cene, for “new”—because human activities have caused mass extinctions of plant and animal species. The residency will culminate in an immersive exhibition of these creatures rendered into a three-dimensional environment, accompanied by shadow-box “specimens” and an interactive drawing. Visit Roberta in the South Gallery from November through January to add your own creativity to the construction. Supplies provided through the sponsorship of ACE Hardware Longmont.
