Exhibition in Print Journal Party
December 3 at 4pm PT/7pm ET

What does devotion look like in material form? This year’s International Exhibition in Print asked a seemingly easy, yet difficult question. As makers, we devote ourselves to our work and the relationship we have with it. Devotion can take many forms including trust, care, dedication, and love for a craft. There is an inherent slowness or rhythm to the making process. It is a laborious task where one becomes attached to and imbued within your work. – Lauren Sinner, SDJ Managing Editor

Join Lauren Sinner and Jovencio de la Paz, guest juror, on December 3 for an exhibition “walkthrough” of Devotion: Sewing the Sacred.

Registration is required

This event will be held via Zoom Webinar. Individual cameras and mics will be off but audience questions can be submitted during the talk.
