1979-1999
Scope and Contents note:
This series contains records of approximately twenty-five group exhibitions held at the gallery. Files typically contain announcements, press releases, correspondence with participating artists, price lists, and photographs of artwork. Researchers should note that records of other exhibitions can be found in the artist files.

For several exhibitions, such as the Alfred Show (1989), and some of the New Glass exhibitions and Teapot Invitationals, Weiss requested that participants submit black and white sketches, rather than photographs of artwork, for the exhibition announcements. She asked that the sketches "suggest the character and spirit of the work" to be included in the exhibition. Many of these original black and white drawings, with accompanying letters from the artists, can be found in this series. One oversized letter with accompanying teapot drawings by Juta Savage, is housed in Series 1: Artist Files, and can be found in OV 21.

See Appendix for a list of exhibitions at Meyer Breir Weiss Contemporary Crafts, Inc., and the Dorothy Weiss Gallery.
Arrangement note:
Files are chronologically by date of exhibition which appears in parentheses after the title and is followed by span dates for the folder. Some files contain records of several exhibitions of the same title over a period of years, for which no specific exhibition years are given. These folders are placed at the beginning of the series. Within folders, material is generally arranged chronologically. However, in cases where the gallery collected records relating to individual artists in a single exhibition, material is arranged alphabetically by artist and then chronologically.
