Salmagundi's Gargoyles & Plaster Sculpture in New York Architecture
Parlor, May 06, 2015
On May 6 at 6:30 PM, Conservator - Analyst of Art and Heritage John Scott will speak on several late 19th to mid-20th century plaster architectural sculptures made in New York City. John will draw on his art historical and technical studies of these plasters' patronage and production, especially their finishes, and from his records of their conservation. Most of the subject artworks are still accessible to view in New York City public schools, or in a museum, and two frolicking satyr gargoyles inhabit their own beautiful and historic premises, the Salmagundi Art Club of New York.
On the evening of May 6, visitors may greet this remarkable pair literally hanging out between the Club's Lower Gallery and the Bar, just past the downstairs Dining Room. Plan to arrive well before the lecture, or to stay late--on public program nights non-members are welcome for dining (Restaurant 5:30-8:30 PM) and/or libations (5-9:30), checks and credit cards preferred. SACNY's art-laden galleries, hallways and parlor are usually open to the public Mon-Fri 1-6 PM, Sat & Sun 1-5 PM.
