8 Linear feet
Boxes 16-24

Exhibition Files documents the gallery's exhibitions through catalogs, clippings, correspondence, guest books, notes, photographs, press materials, price lists, and scattered sales receipts and other financial records. Materials found here only provide partial documentation of the gallery's exhibition schedule. Exhibitions at the gallery from the 1980s-1990s are especially under-represented.
In addition to James Graham & Sons, this series includes exhibitions held by Duveen-Graham Gallery, Graham Gallery, Graham Modern, and JG|Contemporary, as well as Graham's participation in art fairs (late 1980s-1990s). Additional exhibition materials are also found in other series.
Originally, much of the material was arranged by subject, such as British pottery shows or Illustration exhibitions. However, the series has been rearranged chronologically according to exhibition date. Guest books are arranged at the end of the series.
