SIUE to add Cougar flair to SGCI conference

The 2011 Southern Graphics International Conference is set to take place in St. Louis at the Sam Fox School of Design & Visual Arts at Washington University on March 16-19. SIUE will be hosting its own slate of events in conjunction with this major conference on March 17.

On Thursday, SIUE’s campus – in tandem with the events taking place at Washington University – will be buzzing with demos, exhibitions and projects with themes including “Balance Over the Divide: Finding equilibrium between the printer and the printmaker” and “Texture: Marbleizing Effects Produced from a Photolitho Plate.”

The SGCI Conference is a world renowned event which brings together artists from all 50 states as well as international attendees from Canada and Europe.

“The SGCI is the largest print organization in North America. Its annual conference is the biggest annual gathering focused on the field of printmakings,” reads the SCGI Web site. “… The conference provides an opportunity to feature the work and philosophies of a program’s faculty and students. The educational and professional benefits of hosting and attending a conference for an institution’s students are significant.”

A full schedule of the events being hosted by SIUE are available on the SCGI Web site. Shuttle services between Washington University and SIUE will also be provided on March 17.
