Doba Afolabi – Samalgundi should feel these pieces while other museums like Africa America museum in Long Island already feels.
Classic beauty – This institution is the home away from home for countless artists. The parlour is an understated grand Beaux Art parlour with a Steinway Duo-Art Reproducing Grand in the corner and rolls that one of the courteous staff will assist you loading. The restaurant downstairs has a rustic, Colonial theme. The cocktails are unusually well priced. The library is a grand, historic library, itself worth the visit.
A Village institution that's not just a gallery: It's a community that makes and shows art. – Deep Roots
Founded in 1880, Salmagundi began as a small group of artists who met weekly to sketch and then discuss each other's work. Over a century later the organization has 600 members from all different walks of life and is housed in an historic brownstone near Washington Square Park. While the club offers special privileges to its members (such as access to the research libraries, conference room, private bar and dining room), the frequently changing exhibits and artists' receptions are free and open to the public.
Salmagundi also runs affordable and ongoing drawing and painting classes in which students can choose to work with an instructor or as an observer on their own. Other programs include workshops, lectures, field trips, open juried shows and a scholarship program for young artists. Membership can be applied for in several categories including professional, amateur and junior artist.
