The club owns a collection of over 1,500 works of art spanning its 140 year history and has a membership of nearly 850 artists and patrons. Tim is the founder and curator of American Masters, an annual art exhibition and sale at the famed Salmagundi Club. Since its inception in 2008, the show has exhibited some of the very best in American contemporary art. Tim created and runs this annual exhibition (as a volunteer) for the benefit of the Salmagundi Club. American Masters proposed and began the fundraising for Salmagundi's gallery renovation that was completed in 2014. Tim also serves on the Board of the Artists' Fellowship, the Board of Trustees for the Stobart Foundation and the Board of Advisors for the Clark Hulings Foundation.
