The Salmagundi Club is located at 47 Fifth Avenue, New York, NY 10003. The club has been a center for American art since 1871.
This is my third time being juried into the photography and graphics exhibition ... but the first time getting all three of my entries accepted. Two of my accepted entries were from the April trip to London. Each trip I've gone on so far, I put down my oil paintbrushes and pick up pencils and pen ... giving myself a chance to really take in my surroundings. It's a welcome, enjoyable change.
"Elgin Marble" was drawn in the British Museum of one of the marble statues that used to decorate the Parthenon in Greece. I drew it next to my friends from Rob Liberace's art historical tour group... and I had, with the help of husband Randy, the very best and perhaps only comfortable seat in the place. The rest of the group were sitting on the hard, marble floor and straining to see over the plentiful museum-goers.
