Oct 9: SCNY @ The Art Students League • Celebrating the Line

Walter Jack Duncan • The Salmagundi Bar • Pen & Ink

(By Mitch Kahn)

On view through November 7th at the Phyllis Harriman Mason Gallery of the Art Students League (215 West 57th Street • NYC) is an exhibition of work by “Outstanding Illustrators, Designers and Cartoonists” including many members of Salmagundi. Curated by Pamela N. Koob, items include those from the ASL collection as well as others on loan from SCNY.

Editor’s note: The decision to photograph these works by SCNY artists was unplanned, with the execution perhaps a bit rushed, however such an extensive body of work warranted the effort to provide a small glimpse to members who would otherwise be unable to see this exhibition.

Oct 7: Sneak Peek • 2012 Fall Auction Exhibition

Fall 2012 Auction Exhibition

(By Mitch Kahn)

Following a perusal of the 2012 Harlem ArtWalk and a second go at the Fall 2012 Affordable Art Fair, an unplanned stop @47 to replenish a supply of business cards provided an eleventh hour opportunity to steal a few shots of the 2012 Fall Auction Exhibition and visit with Maceo Mitchell and Patricia Wynne in the Patron’s Gallery (see October TAGGED). Pardon a few fuzzy photos and undoubtedly some missed artwork (this was not the official shoot and the Club was about to close for the day). Kudos to Charlie Yoder, the Art Committee and other member volunteers for another exceptional hanging.

Oct 5: Oktoberfest, Awards Presentation & General Meeting

Oktoberfest Crowd

(By Mitch Kahn)

This triple header at Salmagundi drew a stellar turnout. An Oktoberfest reception complete with wurst and a keg of beer was the perfect theme for the close of the Sunrise, Sunset Silent Auction. It also doubled as the awards reception for the Drawings Show, winding down in the lower gallery as the Club readies both spaces to mount the incoming Fall Auction Exhibition. Following a “Biergarten Buffet” in the dining room, the membership returned to the upper gallery for the October General meeting.
