The Junior and Scholarship program was originally conceived by former Salmagundi Club President Junius Allen in the late 1950’s, and it has remained a vital source for attracting new and talented young members since that time. The Scholarship and Junior Club members have a wide variety of talent that is demonstrated in works done in various mediums and subject matters. Many Salmagundi Club members, such as master portrait painters Daniel Greene and Everett Raymond Kinstler, were former Scholarship and Junior members. The Scholarship program is for members from ages 21-30, and the Junior program is for members ages 31-35.
In addition to its focus on this specific age group, this members’ show is unique in comparison to all other exhibitions held at the Salmagundi Club. It is distinct in that each exhibiting artist may submit multiple pieces of artwork with no restrictions on size or subject matter.
The Salmagundi Club continues to serve as a center for fine artists from New York and around the country, providing exhibitions of paintings, sculpture, and photography, conducting art classes, painting demonstrations, and art auctions throughout the year.
