About The Salmagundi Club: The Salmagundi Club, originating in 1871 as a sketch class in Johnathan Scott Hartley’s studio. It was cited in 1957 for its architectural distinction by the Society of Architectural Historians and the Municipal Art Society. Following a tradition of 137 years, the Salmagundi Club continues to serve as a center for fine artists from New York and around the country-providing exhibitions of paintings, sculpture and photography, conducting art classes and painting demonstrations and art auctions throughout the year.

About Charles Yoder: Charles Yoder is a member of the Salmagundi club and a long time printmaking instructor at the School of Visual Arts.

Update 2/8/11: The presentation was magnificent.  It was a very informative session explaining how to do silk screening at home.  Charles had come prepared with a number of two color prints, that only had the first color applied. All the participants had a chance to try pull a print of the second color, and had their very own collaborative work of art to bring home.  Thanks so much Charles, it was great!
