For the 4th year Print Club is sending students working in Expanded Media to the Southern Graphics Council International Conference with the mission to gain professional development, experience mentorship opportunities, to learn about the broader field of careers in art, network with faculty from potential grad schools, and offer their portfolios for critique by artists from all over the world. This year the conference is in Portland, OR, making travel costs significantly steeper. We are asking for your support in the form of donated artworks for our annual SGCI OR BUST auction on Friday Feb 12th.

We love variety and so will our bidders! Please consider donating works of any medium to the auction.

In the current time of globalization that has brought cultural convergence and integration as well as cultural conflicts and tensions, cross-cultural dialogues are necessary for creating means and approaches to better understanding the reality of an increasingly multicultural world. “Cross-Cultural Dialogue: Sino-American Young Artists Exhibition”, which is a significant part of the “Fantastic Art China 2016: New York International Creative Festival”, provides a platform for young artists from China and America to engage in investigation and exploration through their art practice cross-cultural issues of common interest.

Participating young artists from China are mostly those who graduated in the last few years from such major art schools as the Central Academy of Fine Arts, Beijing Film Academy, Beijing Institute of Fashion Technology, Beijing University of Technology, and Beijing University of Civil Engineering and Architecture. And also includes New York City based young artists who graduated in the last three years from art schools, departments or programs and whose works explore a wide range of cross-cultural issues in the age of globalization.
