About The Salmagundi Club

Founded in 1871, the Salmagundi Club of New York is the second-oldest continuously operating professional art organization in the United States. Ensconced in a landmarked 1852 brownstone mansion on lower Fifth Avenue 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 for the general public.

The building houses three galleries, a library, elegant period parlor and a dining room and bar with vintage pool tables. Our facilities are popular for private rentals, special events as well as television and film shoots.

The Salmagundi Club of New York has a membership in excess of 850 artists and patrons and owns a collection of over 1,500 works of art spanning its 140+ year history. 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.

The Salmagundi Club is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.
