Liz Hammer at the Hammond Museum's Japanese Stroll Garden.
As Asia Week NY’s online news and programs expands to year-round coverage and greatly increased activity, Elizabeth Hammer has joined the team to support these new endeavors.
Most of you know Liz from her years in Education at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, where she wrote and taught about Asian art and ran the public lecture program, and in the Chinese Paintings department at Christie’s New York, where she was Senior Specialist and Head of Sale. Most recently, Liz served as Executive Director of the Hammond Museum and Japanese Stroll Garden in North Salem, NY.
Commenting on her plans for AWNY’s future programs, Liz noted, “The dealers, auction houses, and museums that make up AWNY offer the very best Asian art created and provide an incredible resource to collectors, scholars, and aficionados alike. I very much look forward to working together with all of you to expand the variety and number of events and activities related to Asian art to reach as many people as possible. I hope our members will actively send suggestions, ideas, and feedback to achieve the most creative and effective results that we can.”
