Founded in 1871, the Salmagundi Club is one of the oldest art organizations in the United States. Housed in a historic brownstone mansion in Greenwich Village, this clubs offers classes, exhibits, demonstrations and auctions promoting representational American art.
The club encompasses three galleries, an elegant period parlor, restaurant, a bar with vintage pool tables and a library. The library walls are adorned with the palettes of previous painters, it is one of my favorite places in Manhattan. It is truly a walk through history.
The Salmagundi Club owns over 1500 works of art spanning its 140 year history with a membership of nearly 850 artists and patrons. Members included N.C. Wyeth, Louis Comfort Tiffany, Thomas Moran, Childe Hassam and two of my favorite painters, Emil Carlsen and William Merritt Chase. Honorary members have included such luminaries as Sir Winston Churchill, R. Buckminister Fuller, Paul Cadmus, Al Hirschfeld, Thomas Hoving and Schuyler Chapin.
This non member juried annual show allows artists from all over the nation to exhibit their work in the Salmagundi's club prestigious upper gallery. It is such an honor to have my artwork included in this exhibit.
