I’m honored to have a painting accepted to the Salmagundi Club’s “Figuratively Speaking” exhibition. A juried exhibition of figurative work and the human form in all of its permutations: Portraiture, Clothed, Nude; focusing on the human form and/or face.

Location: The Salmagundi Club |Forty-Seven Fifth Avenue @ Twelfth Street | New York, NY

The Figuratively Speaking exhibition will be held at the historic Salmagundi Club. Founded in 1871, the Salmagundi Club is one of the oldest art organizations in the United States. Housed in a historic brownstone mansion in Greenwich Village, New York City, the Club offers programs including art classes, exhibitions, painting demonstrations, and art auctions throughout the year for members and the general public.

The Salmagundi facilities include three galleries, a library, an elegant period parlor, and a restaurant and bar with vintage pool tables.

The Club owns a collection of over 1,500 works of art spanning its 140 year history and has a membership of nearly 850 artists and patrons. Its members have included important American artists such as Thomas Moran, William Merritt Chase, Louis Comfort Tiffany, N.C. Wyeth and Childe Hassam. Today the Club builds on this legacy by providing a center for the resurgence of representational art in America.
