Artist files consist mainly of correspondence with Edith Gregor Halpert and the Downtown Gallery and may include biographical notes, writings, press releases, original artwork, exhibition information, and printed matter. Following the individual artist files are files titled "Various Artists" that contain similar information about Downtown Gallery exhibitions and group shows elsewhere featuring Downtown Gallery artists. Also included with "Various Artists" is a manuscript titled Art in America (author not cited) and pages from an unidentified publication, both featuring biographies of Downtown Gallery artists.
The files are arranged alphabetically by name of artist, followed by files for "Various Artists." Records are chronological within each file.
