The opportunity for artist members to submit to 10 or more SCNY juried exhibitions throughout the year. They include the Members’ Annual Exhibition, the historic Black and White Exhibition, an SCNY tradition since the 1870’s, the Holiday Thumb-Box Show and Sale, and our all important Fundraising Auctions.

Many of Salmagundi’s Shows are now being posted to Artsy for greater exposure. Artsy connects collectors to art and partners directly with the world’s top galleries, museums, art fairs, and auction houses, providing collectors and enthusiasts a central resource to learn about and purchase artwork from anywhere in the world.

Awards, cash and otherwise, are given for each SCNY exhibition. One or more exhibits during the year will be non-juried.
