Tomorrow is the last official day of Asia Week in the New York galleries (although many galleries scheduled their exhibitions for longer), chances are good that you can go view the complete installations today or tomorrow on short notice by appointment.

Meanwhile, we are happy to say the response to the Asia Week New York Spring 2021 virtual exhibition online continues to be strong and it is being extended until March 27.  This provides a further opportunity to view the selections from our out-of-town members that can only be seen in the online exhibition.
