St. Louis welcomes Printmaking Conference

SGC International is the largest print organization in North America, and its annual conference is the biggest annual gathering focused on the field of printmaking. This year’s conference, titled Equilibrium, is hosted in St. Louis by the Sam Fox School of Design and Visual Arts, Washington University in St. Louis. Artists from all 50 states as well as Canada, South and Central America, and Europe will be in attendance. According to the conference organizers,2011 SGCI Conference logo

The conference theme Equilibrium addresses printmaking’s timeless ability to absorb constant change and to balance complementary forces within the shifting landscape of the field. . . . Equilibrium explores the challenges, fluctuating forces, currents, and (new) waves, as well as the poise, reflection, and continuity of print in the 21st century.

MOCRA will be among several museums and galleries participating in the conference’s Saturday events held in the Grand Center Arts District. Come visit us during our regular hours on Saturday, March 19, 2011, to see MOCRA’s exhibition of Georges Rouault’s Miserere et Guerre series, then stroll over to the other museums and galleries in Grand Center for an unforgettable concentration of the best in printmaking past, present, and future.

Find links to the conference website, and additional information,  on the MOCRA website.
