Eagerly anticipated, the semi-annual auctions at the Salmagundi Club consistently offer a variety of fine art by established and emerging artists. Quite possibly the best-kept secret in the New York art world, the auctions enable novice and experienced collectors to buy high quality fine art at affordable prices. A portion of sales benefit the Club, allowing it to offer art exhibitions, Artist Roundtables, art lectures and other events to the public. Bids start at $250 for original paintings, $150 for photography, and $400 for sculpture.

"Salmagundi Object Project"
Lower Gallery
March 2 - 27
This exhibition features works in all media which must include a pear, some sort of plant, a shiny or reflective object, an egg, and a butterfly. The idea is for each artist to be creative and have fun with these objects in one image.
