New York Times Review of the exhibition


24 July 1983



There are more good women artists in the United States than in any other country. This has nothing to do with the size of the population, or even with the overall number of women artists. It has to do with the quality of the work, but it also involves a social factor, a professional factor, a liberationist factor and even (on one recent reading) a neurological factor. It stands for the demise of an ancient, cumbersome and quite pointless distinction. There is no such thing as ''women's art.'' There is just good art, and a great deal of it is now being made by women.
