NEW YORK – Americans have a long tradition of collecting Asian art, and through their support have made our cultural institutions world leaders in the fields of Chinese, Japanese, Indian and Himalayan art. With interest surging in these areas, it is most timely that Asia Week New York will present an important panel discussion entitled Opportunities and Perspectives in Collecting Asian Art at The Winter Show on Sunday, Jan. 26, at the Park Avenue Armory, at 2:30 p.m.

Matthew Welch, deputy director and chief curator of the Minneapolis Institute of Art, will moderate the panel of five prominent experts, who will explore the current market dynamics and provide insights into the remarkable opportunities for collecting Asian art.

The participants are Dessa Goddard, vice president, head, U.S. Asian Art Group, Bonhams; Jeffrey Horvitz, collector and museum patron; James J. Lally, gallery owner, J.J. Lally & Co. and Chinese art specialist; Joan B. Mirviss, gallery owner and Japanese art specialist; and Christina Yu Yu, Matsutaro Shoriki chair, Art of Asia, Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.
