Young Members


Chair: Vaughn Massey


The Young Members Committee of The National Arts Club strives to engage artists and art enthusiasts under the age of forty to become active in furthering the Club’s mission, thereby ensuring its legacy.

The Young Members Committee provides a bridge for interested art patrons and artists to experience the many benefits of our renowned organization through programming which can serve to introduce potential new members to the Club. Past events have included book launches, film screenings, and exhibits featuring the work of emerging young artists, as well as lively art-themed soirees and costume galas.

The Committee strives to present programs from a modern perspective but which appeal to all age groups. United by a common passion for the arts, the Committee is a diverse body of young members from a broad professional spectrum who continue to seek like-minded individuals dedicated to sustaining a National Arts Club for the twenty-first century while preserving its extraordinary heritage.

Upcoming Events

An Intimate Night of Song and Poetry with Gambles aka Matthew Siskin

Tuesday, May 19
9:00 PM

New York/ London musician Gambles, aka Matthew Siskin launches his second album Vicious Times with an acoustic concert of music, prose and poetry in the round. Following debut album Trust (2013), Vicious Times layers bold textures against lyrical storytelling, bridging classic folk songwriting with contemporary musical themes. Produced by BOOTS (FKA Twigs, Beyoncé), Gambles’ latest work evolves from a singular voice into the collective with songs pointed toward life’s inside out.
The evening will feature roving performances by Gambles and special guests, weaving an immersive web of music and spoken word, in hopes of lessening the gap between artist and audience. A native New Yorker who favors raw, acoustic shows, Gambles will perform songs from both Trust and Vicious Times in a small interactive setting allowing for audience participation.
