The Salmagundi Club, at 47 Fifth Avenue in New York City's Greenwich Village, will host its famous Annual Fall Auctions of works by artist members in all media, including oil painting, sculpture, fine-art graphics, and photography. Works at auction can be viewed at the Club from Monday, October 8, through Friday, November 2, and online beginning Friday, October 12, at Live Auctioneers, where online bids will be accepted during the auction events. The First Auction will take place on Wednesday, October 17, at 8 p.m. EST; the Second Auction on Sunday, October 28, at 2 p.m. EST, following a festive Champagne Brunch at the Club (starting at 11 a.m.); and the Third Auction on Friday, November 2, at 8 p.m. EST.
The semi-annual recurrence of this event is eagerly anticipated by art world cognoscenti familiar with the well-known quality and diversity of works by Salmagundi artists. Every Spring and Fall avid collectors gather in the Club's large Upper Gallery to purchase pieces of lasting beauty and value at prices far below those at commercial galleries. At this Fall's 2012 event, upwards of 200 beautifully executed works of art will be on display.
