“Youngsters? No, after all, an artist is not necessarily still immature at 40 or even 30. But we associate exuberance with youth, and there is enough framed exuberance in this show to blow up the building.” —The New York Times

“. . . the keynote of the exhibition seems to be a kind of adventurous, often experimental, freshness.” —The New York Times
