National Society of Craftsmen

the pose of the figure is peculiarly happy. Honour-
able mention was also accorded to another of
“Dixie’s” photographs, a capital piece of work,
which in its clever lighting and arrangement speaks
for itself.


The new National Society of Crafts-
men has lately taken possession of
rooms in the studio building of the National Arts
Club. The studio building is situated on East
Nineteenth Street, near Fourth Avenue, New


York, immediately in the rear of the National Arts
new club house, on Twentieth Street, Gramercy
Park. In these new rooms the craftsmen will hold
their first exhibition, from December third to
fifteenth, inclusive. There was some little delay
in occupying the rooms, which were promised
by October first, but preparations for the exhibition
are rapidly being perfected.
The new rooms are spacious, well lighted, and
excellently adapted to the work of the society.
They consist of a large exhibition gallery and two
adjoining rooms on the second floor, and a mem-

are also commodious store-rooms and closets and
convenient passages. The
large gallery is 20 by 30 feet,
with ceiling 18.6 feet high,
and the smaller rooms each
about 12 by 16. After the
opening exhibition, a per-
manent salesroom will be
established here. Besides

Street, the studio building
has passageways connect-

the city, within a block and
a half of subway and ele-

While so close to the bustle
of the town, it is in a quiet
and restful spot.
The club house proper,
on Gramercy Park, Twen-
tieth Street, was formerly
the residence of Governor
Samuel J. Tilden, and it
was originally designed and
arranged by him with the
intention of leaving it to
the city. In its conversion
