Southern Graphics Conference in Philadelphia 2010

August 1, 2010

This year’s SGC conference in Philadelphia took place alongside the international print triennial Philagrafika, which consisted of several exhibitions all around the town of exceptional quality. The SGC’s array of printmaking related demos, venders fair and a variety of curated print portfolios presented at the participating art schools around town; University of the Arts, Tyler School of Art at Temple and the Philadelphia Academy of the Arts (PAFA),  created an energetic synergy between the well attended conference and the international festival.

Philadelphia’s art schools can boast having some of the best print making facilities in the country it seems, each school offering unique enhancements for the student of printmaking from traditional to digital to letterpress facilities and faculty.

Upcoming Southern Graphics Conferences will be in Saint Louis in 2011 and Southern California in 2012!
