Arts of Pacific Asia Show, which ran during New York Asia Week for more than 10 years, the upcoming Pier Antiques Show, March 16-17, falling within the first three days of Asia Week, provides a showcase for specialists in the fine arts, textiles and objets d’ arts of Asia, Japan, the Pacific Islands as well as the Near and Far East.
“Asian antiquities have always been well represented in our show’s mix of fine art, antiques and collectibles,” notes show producer, Stella Show Management. “This season, however, we are delighted to welcome new exhibitors from Europe and other parts of the country who will be bringing in special collections in time for Asia Week New York.”
New to the show is Nick Pitcher of Nicholas Pitcher Oriental Art Ltd., from London – a specialist in Chinese works of art and ceramics from very early Han and Tang dynasties through to the 19th century. Pitcher focuses on works of art from the Ming and Qing dynasties. Of particular interest to Pitcher are Ming and Qing bronzes, which are growing in appreciation.
Also from London is Robert Brandt of Brandt Asian Art, who will be bringing a new collection of antique Chinese and Japanese works of art, furniture and textiles to the show.
Other specialists exhibiting Asian art and antiques in the Spring Pier Show include Marvin Baer of the Ivory Tower Inc., New Milford, N.J.; T.S. Chen of Trappings of Time, Bradbury, Calif., who will be bringing a selection of Asian jewelry, textiles and ivory carvings; and James Dolph of JSD Antiques, whose collection includes Japanese netsukes, along with many others.
