Shades of Gray
Reintroducing American Tonalism at the Salmagundi Club

The American Tonalist Society is hosting an online juried submission process for guest artists in its inaugural Exhibition at the Salmagundi Club in May 2019.   There will be only three artists that will be chosen to join the invited artists and if chosen,  the artists will be also given complimentary membership to the American Tonalist Society for a full year.   

Dear Artist,

We are working towards over $10,000 in sponsorships.

About Contemporary American Tonalism:
In response to the popularity of colorful plein air painting on the American scene, today’s American Tonalists celebrate paintings that portray atmospheric and luminous effects that evoke emotion. The paintings represent a quiet, contemplative experience that embody spirituality and simplicity.  

The mission of the ATS is to recognize, promote and showcase the current tonalist movement, and to continue the tradition of the American Tonalists of the 1800s through workshops, exhibitions and catalogues.

Please submit images of works you want included in the show. All works will be considered for inclusion in the show based on curatorial review. Work will be accepted by digital submissions.
