The Toledo Museum of Art has added a public program to its previously announced schedule of events for May 2010. On Monday, May 24 from 6-8 p.m. Carolyn Putney, interim deputy director and curator of Asian art, will lead a panel discussion in the Little Theater on the Chinese art market.
Panelists include James B. Godfrey, former director of Chinese art at Sotheby’s and an internationally recognized specialist in Chinese art and antiquities based in Charlottesville, Virginia and Anthony Carter, a London-based art dealer specializing in Chinese art and ceramics. The panelists will discuss the current state of the Chinese art market, the import and export market, fakes and forgeries and how to begin or expand a collection of Chinese art. Questions from the audience will be taken. The program is free and open to the public. A private reception for invited guests will take place following the presentation.
Because the Museum is normally closed on Mondays and space is limited, attendees are encouraged to RSVP their interest to Kathy Miller.
