Each year, the historic Salmagundi Club opens its doors to a non-member exhibition. Two floors of gallery space devoted to this annual event, which includes painting, sculpture and graphics in the main gallery, and photography in the lower gallery.
Founded in 1871, The Salmagundi Club is one of the oldest art clubs in the U.S., with a past membership that included Louis Comfort Tiffany, Stanford White, William Merritt Chase and Childe Hassam. Today, the Club has over 1,000 members worldwide.
The Club’s four-story townhouse consists of three art galleries, a library, parlor, dining room, and bar area. And we think this might be the only townhouse on Fifth Avenue from Washington Square Park all the way up to Marcus Garvey Park on 120th Street.
In addition to its historic art collection, the Club also displays a historic palette collection, vintage monotype printing presses, a unique mug collection, and rare Union League pool tables in the lower gallery that members regularly use. The Salmagundi Club is free and open daily.
The 41st Annual Open Exhibition will be on view from July 15 to August 2, 2019. The Salmagundi Club is located at 47 Fifth Avenue, between 11th/12th Streets in Greenwich Village. Gallery hours are Monday through Friday from 1-6pm and Saturday and Sunday from 1-5pm. Free and open to the public.
In addition to exhibits in the three galleries, The Salmagundi Club offers weekly art classes open to the public in every medium.
Next up ~ The Salmagundi Club and the Greenwich Village Society for Historic Preservation currently have an Open Submission for up-and-coming art exhibition entitled, Greenwich Village and Surroundings. This exhibition is in celebration of the 50th Anniversary of the Greenwich Village Historic District, which will open at The Salmagundi Club in October, 2019.
