The conference site committee is working with galleries and museums in New Orleans to coordinate a rich variety of exhibition in conjunction with the Southern Graphics Council Conference. We have also planned numerous portfolio presentations on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday in the Exhibition Hall of the conference hotel.  For a complete list of these portfolios, follow the "Portfolio Presentations" link on the Print Gumbo web site menu bar.

On Thursday April 4th buses will transport conference attendees to two receptions in the City Park Region at Delgado College and the New Orleans Museum of Art.

The conference has been planned to allow us to take advantage of receptions which take place the first Saturday of every month in the New Orleans Arts District.  Saturday afternoon we are also planning steam roller printing at the New Orleans Center for Contemporary Art.
