"This exhibition and publication celebrate the sesquicentennial of Mount Holyoke College in South Hadley, Massachusetts. How appropriate that is also demonstrates the highest achievement of women artists and highlights and important facet of Mount Holyoke College Art Museum collection."- foreword by T. J. Edelstein. "The intent of the exhibition is to juxtapose the work of established artists with that of some whose reputations are yet to be cemented. For some of the artists printmaking is an occasional undertaking, while for others it is the focus of their artistic activity. The exhibition and publication are intended neither as a complete survey nor as an inclusive representation of quality in the fields. Many artists had preforce to be excluded, as did, for that matter a number of master printers; this should be taken as an indication of the extraordinary quality to be found today in the art of women working int he printmaking processes."-- introduction.
