Capsule Auctions is excited to announce our collaboration with Salmagundi, the historic Art Club founded in 1871 and a vital Greenwich Village resource dedicated to traditional art.  The club, home to many of the greatest names in American art history, hosts exhibitions and art classes, educational programs, commissions new works and supports emerging artists from an elegant brownstone home at 47 Fifth Avenue.   It is supported by over 1,000 members and the oldest continuous benefit art auctions in New York, held in spring and fall.  Our bid platform, CapsuleLive, will host the spring auction on June 19th, which features over 150 works selected from member submissions and including historic work from the Salmagundi archive collection, all appearing at auction for the first time.  Capsule brings our contemporary expertise, targeted marketing solutions and exclusive online resources to bring the authenticity and quality of Salmagundi art to a wider audience.  We are delighted to move forward together into exciting new territory and look forward to an innovative, historic auction event.
