Founded in 1871 Salmagundi is the oldest art club in New York, and former home to many of the great names in American art history, including Thomas Moran, William Merritt Chase, Louis Comfort Tiffany, Chaim Gross, N.C. Wyeth, Guy Wiggins and Norman Rockwell. The club is also home to the oldest continuous art auction in the city, offering works selected from member submissions sold to benefit the club, all featuring the famous Salmagundi Club label and offered to a live audience.
Over 200 works will be offered, mostly paintings, all professionally framed and appearing at auction for the first time. Among the ‘experiences’ offered will be the opportunity to commission a Salmagundian to paint your portrait, architectural or landscape scene. The auctioneer will be Nick Dawes of Heritage Auctions, who is also Chairman and CEO of Salmagundi and familiar to many through 25 years as an expert appraiser on PBS ‘Antiques Roadshow’.
These Spring Auctions are a major fundraising event for Salmagundi, a non-profit organization. Monies raised from the auctions help to fund the operation of our historic organization and maintain our landmark building.
