The Second Annual American Masters Fine Art Exhibition and Sale opened today at the Salmagundi Club in New York City. Over one hundred pieces of representational art by nearly four dozen of today's foremost artists will be offered for sale during this sale benefitting the Salmagundi Club.
The sale itself begins on Friday, May 1st, through a ballot process in which prospective buyers purchase the opportunity to bid on the paintings, and then submit tickets for the paintings in which they are interested. After a random drawing, the winner may then purchase the piece of work for which they had expressed an "intent to purchase." Paintings not sold during this registered sale will be available for purchase by the general public beginning Saturday.
The artists participating include several on which I've already written posts, including Scott Christensen, Dennis Doheny (this year's California Art Club winner for Best Landscape), and David Kassan (this year's First Place winner at the Portrait Society of America's International Portrait Competition). Richard Schmid, Clyde Aspevig, Bill Anton, Sarah Lamb, David Leffel, Sherrie McGraw, and Matt Smith are some of the other artists participating. (to see the full list, click here).
The show runs from April 29 - May 7th, and is open to the public from 12:00-6:00 PM daily.
