2015 SGC INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE (MARCH 18-21, 2015) Knoxville, Tennessee -USA
A Renewed Call for Participation
In 1972 Boyd Saunders, then a new Assistant Professor at the University of South Carolina sent letters to printmaking programs at colleges and universities in the southeastern United States in an effort to meet at the SECAC Conference to be held that year in New Orleans. Saunders was seeking to form a support system of colleagues devoted to making and teaching printmaking. During the conference a small group of printmakers met in the St. Charles Hotel, which served to "INKubate" the formation of the Southeastern Graphics Council, later known as the Southern Graphics Council, and what is known today as SGC International (SGCI).
As part of the 2015 SGC International Conference a series of nine 90-minute "INKubator" sessions are planned. Each of the sessions will be chaired by a separate facilitator and will revolve around a common set of concerns or issues with no more than 30 participants. Many of the sessions still have places for those who wish to participate. If you wish to join the conversation before the conference, please contact the facilitators listed below.
