The 2013 South Central Regional Conference began in Houston with portfolio reviews at Houston Center for Photography on Thursday. The reviewers were Jason Dibley, Museum of Fine Arts, Houston; Libbie Masterson, Houston Center for Photography; Jennifer Ward, FotoFest; and Clint Willour, Galveston Arts Center. After the reviews, attendees toured the Menil Collection then boarded buses for an exhibition at FotoFest. The evening ended with dinner and a reception at HCP. On Friday and Saturday the conference moved to College of the Mainland (COM) in Texas City for presentations and a dinner reception for one of two Member and Student shows. Honored Educator Keith Carter and keynote speaker Tracy Xavia Karner (author, curator, and visual sociologist) delivered very compelling talks. Saturday's bus tour of Galveston galleries included the Galveston Arts Center and Galveston College where the second Member and Student exhibition was on display. Dinner was provided back at COM, along with the raffle drawing, a photo booth and photo-themed piatas! The conference ended on Sunday with a tour of the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston print room. The tireless conference Co-Chairs, Kristy Peet and Juliana Forero, and their dedicated committee and student volunteers put together an outstanding conference!
