The first exhibition of the series, 18 Artists from 9 States, is a selection limited by definition and by necessity to a small number of painters and sculptors whose work is new to the New York public or has not been adequately represented here in recent years. Artists closely identified with the New York art world have not been included in this year's exhibition, but succeeding shows in the series will not be limited in this way. The number of artists in the exhibition has been kept small in order that each might be represented by a group of works sufficient to give an indication of style and personality. New York artists and the New York public will make the acquaintance in this show of at least two painters whose names and pictures are unknown to them. Several others, though not complete strangers, have never had a one-man exhibition in New York. Of the rest, some are newcomers who have made their mark in the last year or two, others have been showing for some years but have never been well known in the east. Most of them have studied and worked in towns far removed from the art centers of the Atlantic seaboard - some, in fact, have never been in the east. They come from Texas, California, Oregon, Washington, Missouri, Michigan, Illinois, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts - and these are only a few of the states where one may discover high talent and sound training in the arts. . . .
