4.1: Exhibition Files , 1926-1969, undated

Exhibition files (0.5 linear foot) include an index, exhibition lists, check lists, price lists, and artist data sheets. There are no files for individual shows; the records relating to specific exhibitions are scattered throughout the business correspondence, with auxiliary information appearing in artist files and among the printed matter and publicity notebooks.
Index records include an alphabetical listing of Downtown Gallery exhibitions, indicating dates of each show and whether a catalog and/or publicity material were issued; the index is annotated to indicate page number, "something missing," or "missing in photograph book" (possibly an index to a publicity scrapbook).
The exhibition lists include chronological listings of Downtown Gallery exhibitions, alphabetical listings of one-person shows, and chronological listings of group shows indicating participants in alphabetical order; all lists were compiled by the gallery.
Artist data sheets include questionnaires completed by artists participating in the exhibitions Newcomers (1951), Artists of Chicago (1954), Painters of Los Angeles (1955), and 7 Artists in Hawaii (1960).
