Series 3: Exhibition Files, 1969-2014
1.2 linear feet
Boxes 3-4

Exhibition files document a small number of group exhibitions, collectibles and antique exhibitions (from private collections), summer invitationals, and special event exhibitions. The files include a wide range of materials in varying combinations, among them: price lists, resumes, installation layouts, press releases, exhibition announcements, brochures, clippings of reviews, photographs and slides of artwork and exhibition installations.
Files of note include "Ivan's Choices: Icons of Hyper-Realism" (2012 January 6-2013 March 2) and "Ivan C. Karp: People/Places, 1948-1963" (2013 January 6-March 2); both exhibitions were selected and arranged by Karp. Also of interest are records regarding the final show held by OK Harris Works of Art (2014 March 9-April 18) featuring work by many of the gallery's artists.
Exhibition schedules are followed by exhibition files arranged in categories established by the gallery: group exhibitions, collectibles exhibitions, antique exhibitions, special event exhibitions, and summer invitationals. This series is incomplete. Similar materials concerning solo exhibitions are found in the artists' files (Series 4). Additional exhibition schedules are included with printed material (Series 5). Complete visual documentation of exhibition installations throughuot the gallery's 45 year history is found among the photographic materials (Series 7).
