Salmagundi Spring Auction, Day 3
Since its founding in 1871, the Salmagundi Club has been devoted to the practice and appreciation of fine art. Early members included William Comfort Tiffany, William Merritt Chase, Childe Hasam, and N.C. Wyeth, among many. The Club continues to thrive with year-round exhibitions, lectures, concerts, and demonstrations; the galleries are always alive with quality original art by living artist members and invited guests, much of it for sale. Every year in March and October Salmagundi schedules art auctions open to the public with works by its member artists. This year the auctions will be available online for the first time. Upcoming auctions will be Friday, March 4 at 8pm, Sunday, March 13 at 2pm, and Friday, March 18 at 8pm. Interested collectors may attend the auctions at 47 Fifth Avenue, New York City, in person where the available art will be on exhibition from February 28 through March 18. Bidding can be done in-person at the gallery or via telephone, and online at LiveAuctioneers, and opening bids are $150 for photographs and prints, $300 for original paintings and drawings, and $400 for cast-metal sculptures.
