SGC International Conference 2015

Margaret Craig and Southwest School of Art (SSA) colleagues Nicole Geary and Dinah Coakley attended the 2015 Southern Graphics Council Conference (Sphere SGCI) in Knoxville Tennessee (March 18-21, 2015).

Margaret and Dinah showed work at one of the many tables set up for the conference’s Open Portfolio Session.

The two also presented a demonstration called The Sphere of Vinyl/Media Cutting for Aid in Platemaking that detailed how to use computerized cutting to augment intaglio, screen-printing, relief, monoprints and dry point, starting with the artist’s own image.

Nicole Geary presented Geology and Personal History in Printmaking in a panel session entitled At the Core: Printmakers and Geologies.

The Sphere SGCI Conference brought together printmakers from across the globe. The gathering included 1,600 attendees from 13 different countries.
