SGC International Membership


An SGCI Membership gives access to inspiring dialogue about the making of original prints, drawings, books, and handmade paper. Through our resources, SGCI supports the inquiry, learning, and study of print education from a global perspective.

In addition to our annual conference, members have the opportunity to submit articles, reviews, and artwork to be published in the newsletter, participate in SGCI member exhibitions, and receive news about opportunities within the print community and the art world at large.

Our vibrant network of 2,500+ artists, educators, and arts professionals is a resource for ideas, inspiration, and innovation. While the SGC International mission focuses on printmaking, we welcome everyone interested in advancing the dialogue of art, its education, and its processes.
