2017 National Conference


Enchanting Layers in New Mexico


Albuquerque, New Mexico

September 20-23, 2017


Wednesday through Saturday were days filled with wonderful activities. On Wednesday SLMMers gathered from far and wide to honor our founder, Mary Carroll Nelson, and to celebrate the 35th anniversary of the Society of Layerists in Multi-Media.


Highlights of the conference included the welcoming reception, a bus trip to Santa Fe, speakers, a collaborative art activity that resulted in two accordion-style books, general meeting, evening banquet with a short presentation on the history of SLMM, Flamenco dancers, a visit to the National Hispanic Cultural Center and Indian Pueblo Cultural Center and last but not least, a closing social, raffle, and talk by Charles Eaton ending with our traditional SLMM Prayer Circle.
