This series primarily documents group exhibitions held at the Robert Schoelkopf Gallery between 1963 and 1987, in addition to several exhibitions held in other locations. Records relating to exhibitions of work by individual artists are not included in this series but can be found in Series 1: Aftist Files. The first files in the series contain exhibition lists and printed material for shows that have no accompanying material and thus are not represented in an individual folder. Much of the printed matter consists of general reference material relating to themes of group shows held at the gallery. It also documents group exhibitions at other locations that featured artists in whom the gallery had an interest. Three folders of photographs that were originally labeled "Publicity Photographs" can be found immediately following these files.
The bulk of the series deals with specific exhibitions. Records include photographs of installations and individual works of art shown, exhibition catlogs, clippings, press releases, and material pertaining to related events. Correspondence concerning arrangements for exhibitions and requests for information can also be found here. Files chronicling specific exhibitions are arranged chronologically, with the exception of three files combining material relating to two exhibitions entitled Nine Realist Painters and Nine Realist Painters Revisited that can be found at the end of the series. Dates of exhibitions are given in parentheses after the exhibition titles and should not be confused with record dates.
The series contains ten negatives of photographs used in the 1985 exhibition, Photographs of the American West, and three negatives of installation shots from the 1985 exhibition, American Stone Carvers. For preservation reasons these are stored at the end of the negatives from Series 1: Artist Files, in Box 24.
