The biennial show of the American Tonalist Society opened in New York on April 28, featuring 67 paintings of 30 top North American artists in the ATS’s second biennial show, Shades of Grey II at the prestigious Salmagundi Club on Fifth Avenue in New York.
The historic parlor of the Salmagundi Club provides the perfect venue for the paintings. Hung salon style, the show harkens back to an era of quiet elegance, when the paintings of George Inness and J. Francis Murphy were among the most sought-after works in the county.
At the awards ceremony during Friday’s opening gala, Kim Lordier won the Curt Hanson Best of Show Award. Other award winners were: Michael Albrechtsen, Ben Bauer, Ritchie Carter, Deborah Paris, Justin Worrell, Thomas Kegler, Dennis Sheehan, Kevin Courter, Jennifer Moses, Nancy Howe, and Brent Cotton.
Shades of Grey II will close Sunday, May 8, 2023. The Salmagundi Club is located at 47 Fifth Avenue, New York. Some of the top winners are shown here; see all of the works at americantonalistsociety.com.
