From Rembrandt van Rijn to Peter Max, Park West Gallery’s art collection turned heads during its first-ever appearance at the Art Amoy Art Fair in China.

The art fair was held May 19–21 at the Xiamen International Convention and Exhibition Center in the port city of Xiamen. Park West Gallery was the only U.S.-based art dealer at the fair, where more than 10,000 artworks were exhibited.

According to Teng Li, an official with Art Amoy, the event aims to promote the cultural and artistic atmosphere of Xiamen as “one of the top-class art fairs in Asia.”

Guests who visited the Park West booth discovered a treasure trove of artwork that spanned across art history. Artwork from Rembrandt was prominently on display alongside art from modern masters like Pablo Picasso and Joan Miró. Art from contemporary icons like Max, Pino Daeni, Yaacov Agam, and Itzchak Tarkay also wowed guests.

In addition to presenting art, Park West Gallery Executive Vice President of Sales Stoney Goldstein was invited to host a discussion on current trends in collecting fine art. According to Art Amoy’s social media channels, his seminar “redefined the meaning of art collecting.”

“Park West Gallery was honored to be part of Art Amoy,” Goldstein said. “The “Chinese people have a real thirst for the arts. Their aesthetic is changing, and they are embracing creativity like never before. They are moving beyond seeing art as utility to appreciating art on a much deeper, and personal level. It was a real pleasure to meet so many people who enjoy not only our collection, but also our approach to art collecting.”

Park West Gallery’s participation in Art Amoy is a natural extension of its continued expansion into the Asia cruise market. The bustling harbor city of Xiamen received 79 international cruise ships in 2016, each sailing to destinations such as Taiwan, South Korea, Japan, and the Philippines. That same year, Park West introduced art programs aboard eight cruise ships in Asia. Park West Gallery also partnered with Chinese pop star G.E.M. to help raise funds for charity.
