Celebrating Salmagundi’s 150th anniversary, our library committee is proud to present a display of all first prize winners from our series of annual figure sketching competitions held at the club.

These competitions are an homage to Salmagundi’s roots, harking back to when it was a sketch club.  Similar to early sketch club sessions, these competitions would work from life with live models and depending on the competition, artists may be asked to draw or paint an oil portrait. During these five hour events, three models would serve as a subject of choice for all participating artists. After the art session, judging would take place with awards to be announced and given within the same day.
