SGC International is an educational non-profit organization committed to informing our membership about issues and processes concerning original prints, drawings, book arts, and handmade paper. SGCI is pleased to continue the Career Mentoring Services at the 2018 Conference. Services are provided at no cost to SGCI members attending the conference. Mentoring services are available for individuals at all stages of their careers – whether you are an undergraduate student thinking about an MFA, a graduate student seeking career advice, an independent artist looking to start a press, or someone in a tenure-track position looking for advice about navigating academia. There are a limited number of spots, so sign up will be first-come, first-served until sessions are full.


Mentor Sessions will be held in Skyview I at the Bally’s Hotel.



Mentoring Topics include (but are not limited to): 

- Artist Portfolio Reviews

- Career Advice for Emerging and Mid-Career Artists

- Tenure and Academic Advancement

- Independent Presses, Non-Profits, and Community-Based Art


Mentor sessions are 20 minutes in duration. Mentors meet with each member individually. 

Sessions will take place within the following times:

Thursday, April 5: 11 am - 4 pm

Friday, April 6: 11 am - 4 pm



Free! There is no cost for any SGCI Member to register for a Career Mentor Session.


Mentors are SGCI Members who are experienced professionals, and want to serve our membership and foster interest in our field. This is a volunteer service that they provide. If you are interested in serving SGCI during the 2018 conference, please  click here to fill out the application form.
