Shadowy autumn yard with trees and some step ladders.

We are excited to announce that the auctions are back live and in-person at the Salmagundi Club. In the past, the historic auctions, along with pledges from patron members, brought in enough money to purchase the beautiful building that the Salmagundi Club calls home today. The auctions are and always have been an integral part of the club as a fundraising effort.

Salmagundi Club is home to the oldest continuous art auction in New York, held each spring and fall since the late 1870’s. Original art from club members, together with historic works from the Salmagundi archive collection, will be offered.

The live auction, held in Salmagundi’s skylight gallery, will be divided over two evenings: a session on Thursday, October 19th and another on Thursday, October 26th, both at 7:30 PM. Those who cannot be there in-person will have the option of registering their bids via the online LiveAuctioneers platform.

A preview of the auction works will be available to see in our Rockwell gallery beginning Monday, October 2.

Back by popular demand is Del-Bourree Bach as our auctioneer!
