NEW YORK – The Asia Week New York Association announces that an unprecedented 47 international galleries will participate in Asia Week New York 2014, the nine-day celebration of Asian art and culture that spans the metropolitan region from March 14 through 22.

“The continued growth of Asia Week New York confirms that New York City is firmly established as the not-to-be-missed destination for Asian art collectors and enthusiasts,” says Carol Conover, chairman. “More and more dealers realize that they must be here to take advantage of the tremendous marketing efforts that has brought about Asia Week New York’s huge success. The synergy with galleries, auctions houses, museums and cultural institutions make New York one of the main international hubs for the Asian art market and a wonderful resource for Asian art education.”

The newcomers joining Asia Week New York include: Gisèle Croës s.a., the Chinese specialist from Brussels; GalleryFW, the contemporary Japanese art gallery in Chicago; Michael Goedhuis, the contemporary Chinese art specialist from London; Moke Mokotoff from New York, who specializes in Himalayan art and Chinese textiles; Onishi Gallery, a New York-based gallery devoted to contemporary Japanese ceramics; and Giuseppe Piva Japanese Art, who is coming from Italy with works of art, arms and armor. According to Conover, with some of these new additions, the number of galleries showing contemporary art has increased 25 percent.
