Exhibition files include printed materials, artist resumes and biographies, price lists, artist-dealer contracts, photographic material, correspondence, loan agreements, and other materials related to exhibitions held at Parish Gallery. In some cases exhibition files serve as artist files as well, with additional materials related to artists' work. Many files also include digital images of artwork, installations, and exhibition openings.
Researchers should note that many artists showed at Parish Gallery on multiple occasions. These artists have files for every exhibition. Additionally, some files in this series sustained water damage prior to their arrival at the Archives.
This series is arranged chronologically by exhibition. A file of materials related to other exhibitions can be found at the end of the series.
The bulk of this series has been digitized. Materials which have not been digitized include blank pages, blank versos of photographs, and duplicates. In some cases, exhibition catalogs and other publications have had their covers, title pages, and relevant pages digitized.
