It's very exciting to be part of the Salmagundi Club's first Spring Auction of 2012. Founded in 1871, the Salmagundi Club is one of the oldest art organizations in the United States. It is housed in an historic brownstone mansion in Greenwich Village, New York City.

I was recently elected to membership in this wonderful organization and am honored to be a part of this group of fine artists. I've recently been juried into three exhibits at the club since late fall of last year and I am getting to know my fellow artists there. I especially enjoy the sketch group that meets in their historic library for sketching, drawing and fellowship.

As I get settled in my new art home I would greatly appreciate your support in the auction which supports the Salmagundi Club's mission to offer programs including art classes, exhibitions, painting demonstrations, and art auctions throughout the year for members and the general public.

The Club owns a collection of over 1,500 works of art spanning its 140 year history and has a membership of nearly 850 artists and patrons. Its members have included important American artists such as Thomas Moran, William Merritt Chase, Louis Comfort Tiffany, N.C. Wyeth and Childe Hassam. Today the Club builds on this legacy by providing a center for the resurgence of representational art in America.
The Salmagundi Club is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, so your auction purchase is tax deductible.

The market value for August Wildflowers $900-$1200, the opening bid is set at a very attractive price and there are no reserves.

This is an extraordinary opportunity to purchase an original painting in an economy that might otherwise make it impossible to do so. Don't settle for a print or wall art from a box store. Remember if it has a bar code it has no soul, buy original and handmade!

Your support means the world to me! I hope you will take a look at the auction listing and share it via fabecook, LinkedIn, and twitter, too.

If you're near New York City you can see the auction and bid live on Friday, March 2nd, at 8pm at the Salmagundi Club, 47 5th Ave, NYC.

There are two more spring auctions in March.
