Subject: SGC Philadelphia Trip - Day 1
Posted by: Annie B

Last week I took a few days off to attend the Philadelphia SGC Conference, titled "Mark Remarque." I attended this annual conference once before, in Richmond VA in 2008, but since I was pretty new to printmaking in '08 I didn't know a soul at the Richmond conference.

(The exhibit is up through April 24.) I spent about 20 minutes soaking in the work, then continued to make my way to the Met.
