Each year SGC International dedicates a panel during the conference to be chaired by students—“The Student Panel.” This offers young and emerging students in printmaking the opportunity to discuss and present a scholarly and/or artistic paper. The call for Student Panel proposals is concurrent with the call for the conference proposals, generally in the spring or early summer proceeding the year of the conference. The panel is chaired by the Student Representative on the board of SGC International, and the panel is generally comprised of 3-4 other students representing universities from around the nation.

2010 SGCI Student Panel

Regional Print Dialects:
Pinning Specific Visual Languages to Location
Date: Thursday, March 25, 2010
Time: 4:00 pm – 5:30 pm
Location: UArts CBS Auditorium. (Hamilton Hall, 320 S. Broad St.)

Panelists will speak about their own imagery and how that has been affected by change in locale, as well as talk about how that language is informed through collaborative exercises with other students across the country. They will briefly discuss their biography, their current working environment and location, and how the two very important factors of previous and current locale inform their prints.

Panel Members:
Tate Foley, University of Georgia (co-chair)
Nicole Pietrantoni, University of Iowa (co-chair)
Helen Farmer, University of Georgia
Sara Marie Miller, University of Tennessee
