The first Black & White Exhibition at the Salmagundi Club took place in 1878, only a few short years after the Club was formed. It provided a rich catalogue of the artists of the day, and interestingly enough, exhibitors did not originally need to be members to participate. As the public's interest in illustration grew, these exhibitions provided artwork for a variety of purposes, and many of the works initially shown in these shows went on to be published in the burgeoning magazine market of the late 19th century. The "Black and White" has taken place yearly since then.
The focus of the Black and White Exhibition is to display not only the very finest work of Salmagundi artists but also the unique effect of an exhibition that features only works in black and white or monochrome sepia. The diversity of styles and mediums coupled with the dozens of powerful works on display will appeal to all artistic tastes and is not to be missed.
