The Salmagundi Club (New York) is hosting the exhibition “Figuratively Speaking,” on view February 2-19, 2021.
“When the Village art scene took a left turn in the late 1940’s, our members kept going straight ahead, adhering to the purity of representational art,” said Nick Dawes, Chairman of Salmagundi, of New York’s oldest artist club, established 150 years ago this year.
More from the organizers:
Today over 1,000 members keep the flame of representational, academic art burning, but many consider what they do as supremely, is subtly, very modern. You are invited to judge for yourself over the next three weeks as “Figuratively Speaking.”
