It’s Time for the Annual Salmagundi Club Fall Auctions




The historic Salmagundi Club, 47 Fifth Avenue, Greenwich Village

The Salmagundi Club Fall Auctions are once again live and in-person. The historic auctions, along with pledges from patron members, brought in enough money to purchase this beautiful building in 1917. The auctions are, and always have been, an integral part of the club as a fundraising effort. Fall Auction dates have been announced for October 19 and October 26.

Salmagundi Club is home to the oldest continuous art auction in New York, held each spring and fall since the late 1870’s. Original art from club members, together with historic works from the Salmagundi archive collection, will be offered.
