Purchase from the estate of her friend Piry Rame. These women were members of a cooperative of female avant-garde artists based on Long Island. They exhibited widely. In the late 1960s the A.I.A. Gallery in Great Neck was one venue, a bit like P.S. 1.

“The experimental nature of Hilda Skolnick’s goals link her work to avant-garde sensibilities.”—The New York Times, 1987.

“Hilda Skolnick’s untitled etching is a particularly successful example. The piece is a composite of abstract shapes, dominated by a split circle and dart-like form, oriented in different directions and varied in texture and density. Instead of simple repetition, Ms. Skolnick has given us subtle variations on a basic theme..” —The New York Times, 1990.
