We are excited to present our 12th annual celebration of Asian art in New York. This year the spotlight is on our newly designed Online Viewing Room open from today until March 20. Our 29 participating member galleries and 6 auction houses feature almost 400 works dating from the Neolithic period to the present day.  You can take a virtual visual journey and see a wide array of tantalizing treasures from Japan to China, India, the Himalayas, Indonesia, Korea, the Philippines and even to Iran.
