Our SPE Regional Conference broke many records. It sold out in less than two weeks.

Even the keynote lecture at the Everson Museum of Art sold out. A record number of

people attended our gallery reception on Thursday and again at the reception on

Saturday. Syracuse even graced us with exceptionally wonderful weather.

So to everybody who made this event possible and to those who made their

way to Syracuse, our warmest thanks!
