Salmagundi Art Club of New York



Membership in Salmagundi Club opens the door to an exhilarating world of art: colorful gallery exhibitions; painting demonstrations by nationally recognized artists; classes in drawing and painting; and a host of social activities.

As an artist-member you have the opportunity to exhibit your work in four to six exhibitions a year, including the Spring and Fall Auction Exhibitions in which members' paintings are auctioned off for the mutual benefit of the artist and the Club. It also brings you in touch with other artist-members with similar interests and provides you with access to the Club's extensive art library. Member dues are often paid for by procedes earned from sales of artwork.

Lay members to patron members with an interest in the world of art are welcomed and find the friendly atmosphere conductive to learning about art, including taking classes in drawing and painting, or just enjoying the relaxing and convivial Club House, home for numerous fun-filled social activities.
