The Salmagundi Club is proud to announce its historic Annual Black and White Exhibition. This show is a juried members' exhibition of black and white or monochromatic sepia drawings, graphics, photographs, paintings, and sculpture by artist members. 

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.

 Salmagundi's Annual Black & White Exhibition remains a beloved Salmagundi tradition as artists capture dynamism and vibrance through the simplest of palettes. Peering through a lense of black and white, Salmagundi Club's member artists present finely-tuned styles and techniques in a variety of media. Gallery visitors return for the artistry, the wam sense of nostalgia, and the wide breadth of works on view.
