A Couple Historic Announcements


Judy Takács Elected as Member of Historic Salmagundi Club in New York City

This is so special because I basically grew up in art hearing about the Salmagundi Club in New York from my Portrait Teacher at the Cleveland Institute of Art, José Cintron. He spoke of it with a reverence for the artistic giants of portraiture who have also been members since it began in 1871. William Merrit Chase, Norman Rockwell, Childe Hassam, N.C. Wyeth, Howard Pyle…even Louis Comfort Tiffany. The  Salmagundi Club positioned itself at that lovely crossroads between narrative, representational art and illustration, at a time when that was going out of favor, they carried the torch. 

Judy Takács Elected as Full Member of the Historic Catharine Lorillard Wolfe Art Club

Catharine Lorillard Wolf was a major collector and patron of the arts at the turn of the last century. The CLWAC was established to honor her legacy. Thrilled to announce that I am the newest elected member of this prestigious and selective 122 year old Organization.
