This year the Southern Graphics Council Conference is happening in Chicago and it began yesterday. If, like me, you can't be there and wish you could, I offer you some links to online SGC-related material that may help tide you over.
1. The Conference web site
2. BadAtSports Podcast interviews with Mark Pascale (Curator of Prints and Drawings, Art Institute of Chicago), Debora Wood (Senior Curator, Northwestern University’s Mary and Leigh Block Museum) and Christine Tarkowski (Associate Professor, Fiber and Material Studies, School of the Art Institute of Chicago) about the current state of Printmaking. Long, but a fascinating broad view of the field.
3. Occasional live Tweets from Chicago on Twitter from printmaker Jennifer Hughes
4. The folks at Printeresting have posted a couple of reports from Chicago so far.
