April 20, 2016: Library Dinner Honoring Ann Fensterstock

SCNY'16-Library Dinner - 23(By Anthony Almeida)

This year’s Library Dinner, chaired by Barbara Genko, proved to be another “not to be forgotten event!” The dining room, filled to capacity, brought Salmagundians and guests together for a memorable evening of food and camaraderie.

After dinner, attendees adjourned to the main gallery where author Ann Fensterstock gave a highly informative talk on her book, “Art on the Block,” which tracks the New York art world’s migration during the last fifty years.  Books were available for purchase and autograph by the author.

Here are some images of the event.

April 2016: Monotypes at SCNY & MOMA

SCNY'16-Monotypes SCNY & MOMA - 08(By Anthony Almeida)

April showered Salmagundians with diverse monotype experiences, which fostered creativity and the inspiration which only comes from viewing works by monotype masters. Our April 12th Monotype Party was followed on April 14th, by a guided tour of “Edgar Degas: A New Strange Beauty” at the Museum of Modern Art.

This event, chaired by Annie Shaver Crandell, allowed viewers to see how Degas handled the Monotype medium. Many of Degas’ beautiful pastels actually started out as monotypes, and were embellished with pastel. Some of his famous oil paintings were later made from his monotype studies.

Below are photos from both events.

Mar 22, 2016: Spring Auction Group Dinner

SCNY'16-Auction Group Dinner Spring - 13(By Anthony Almeida)

Touted as “one of the best kept secrets at Salmagundi,” The Salmagundi Club Auction Group Dinner lives up to its reputation! This event, chaired by Elizabeth Spencer, was a wonderful evening of fellowship, fanciful fare and for those who were smiled upon by lady luck and were winners of art work– good fortune.

This time-honored Salmagundi tradition, which helps to raise money for the auction awards, occurs twice a year, Spring and Fall. Those who have already experienced the Auction Dinner, will return as assuredly as the swallows return to Capistrano. For those who did not attend, here’s hoping you’ll join the rest of the flock for the next Auction Dinner in the Fall.

Here are some images of the evening.

“Ode to Valentine’s Day,” a fundraiser for the Salmagundi Club Renovation Fund, proved to be a memorable evening of delight and camaraderie. Mitch Kahn’s stirring repertoire of love songs, joyously beating hearts, and Linc Milliman’s masterful accompaniment on the Bass, made this a Salmagundi event not to be forgotten.
