American Masters Exhibition at the Salmagundi Club 2016
to Oct 31

American Masters Exhibition at the Salmagundi Club 2016

The Salmagundi Club, one of America’s oldest art organizations, will host their annual American Masters event from September 29 – October 21. The event will help celebrate the recent $1.5 million renovation and restoration of the Club’s Upper Gallery space in their landmarked 19th of Greenwich Village.  This fine art exhibition and sale will feature works by nationally recognized artists not often exhibited in New York City.

The Upper Gallery Restoration

The American Masters’ art sale will take place during a special gala event on Friday, October 14 from 6:00 pm – 8:30 pm. 

“Our American Masters event is a tremendous opportunity to see such a magnificent selection of art from such a wide range of today’s best American artists, and have the opportunity to purchase those pieces as well,” said Robert W. Pillsbury, President of the Salmagundi Club. “To have these works showcased in our new world-class Upper Gallery is part of our ongoing mission to maintain the Salmagundi Club as one of New York’s best art institutions.”

Having purchased their historic brownstone building in 1917, the Salmagundi Club worked with Historic Preservation architect Lisa Easton of Easton Associates to completely redesign and renovate their Upper Gallery space with new walls, floors, climate control and state-of-the-art lighting to provide an exhibition space worthy of the compelling works that will be hung in the gallery. The versatile space even boasts a concert piano for special musical events.

Sales from prior American Masters exhibitions initiated significant funding for the renovation project, along with major gifts from the Manton Foundation and a matching grant from the New York State Dormitory Authority. Club members have also made and continue to make generous contributions, along with non-member art enthusiasts.
