Southern Graphics Council International at Hyatt Regency Embarcadero: Vendor and Publisher Fair at the 2014 SGC International Conference.
Artists: 1500 printmakers from America and many countries abroad.
Comment by AB: I'd never heard of the Southern Graphics Council before, but now I have. It's a major international organization of print artists, many of whom are here in San Francisco this week for the their annual conference, the first one ever held west of the Mississippi. Tonight at the opening of the Vendor and Publisher Fair, printmakers from around the world show and sell their art. There are so many participants, many of whom are young and many still in college, that after every 15 minutes or so, all exhibitors pack up their prints and turn their tables over to new exhibitors. This constant shuffle makes for a mind-boggling array of art. A wonderful event with some exceptionally talented practitioners. Gallery owners looking for promising young artists are among those in attendance.

Reclaimed Room at Building REsources: Beneath the Surface.
Artists: Tom Kabat, Clint Imboden, Miles Epstein, Soumyaa Behrens, Bruce Barton, Tim Armstrong.
Comment by AB: Building REsources sells all manner of surplus and recycled building materials. They've also set aside a space in the main building to show art made from recycled materials and art that's concerned with the environmental. Among the offerings are bicycle artist Tom Kabat's wild rides and a cheese box assemblage installation by Clint Imboden. The best news? They're actively looking for artists to exhibit at their facility.
