Southern Graphics Council (SGC) International is an educational non-profit organization committed to informing its membership about issues and processes concerning original prints, drawings, book arts, and handmade paper. Formed in 1972, the Southern Graphics Council has grown into the nation’s largest organization for printmaking with representatives internationally. In 2010, the organization changed its name to SGC International to reflect this broader scope. The annual SGC International Conference was held in Atlanta in 2017, with SCAD Atlanta as one of the hosting institutions.
Fourteen themed and juried portfolios were created for the 2017 conference, as well as an exchange open to all SGC International members. Each participating artist received a portfolio as well as the participating institutions: SCAD Atlanta, Kennesaw State University, and Georgia State University. These portfolios are housed in the SCAD Libraries - Atlanta Special Collections, Print Collection, and are open for research.
