The pioneering exhibit features eighteen women artists who made major contributions from 1914 until 1964. This pioneering exhibition will include paintings, prints, drawings, and sculpture, drawn from public and private collections across the United States. This exhibit was curated by Michael Grauer and originated at the Panhandle-Plains Historical Museum in Canyon, Texas.

Gartner, Gina Knee, Margaret Lefranc, Dorothy Morang, Laura van Pappelendam, Polia Pillin, Alice Schille, Hella Shattuck, Eugenie Shonnard, Agnes Sims, Dorothy Stewart, Pansy Stockton, and Agnes Tait.
