Catalog of an exhibition held at the Trout Gallery, 22 January - 20 February 1999.

Senior Exhibit, Fine Arts Department, Professor Sharon L. Hirsh, Dickinson College.

The twenty works exhibited here, all selections from the Dickinson College permanent collection, represent the engaging diversity of interests and talents of American women artists in the twentieth century. Nowhere is the versatility and vitality of this group of artists more clear than in the contrast between the oldest and the most recent work included here, which span a full ninety-nine years.
