A center for American Art since 1871.
Started as an informal gathering of three artists and two patrons in New York City in 1871, the “Salmagundi Sketch Club” had by 1881 organized several national exhibitions, illustrated an article for Scribner’s Monthly, and were growing in awareness. They settled into a new location at 14 West 12th Street in 1895, and by the end of the 19th century the club had become, in the words of its fourth president Thomas Moran, “the most artistic association in the whole country.” Such illustrious members of that time included William Merritt Chase, Howard Pyle, and Edward Henry Potthast.
