“After more than three years of planning, it was a wonderful confluence to have the opening of our exhibition, Beyond Kutani featuring Nakamura Takuo and Takegoshi Jun, coincide with Asia Week New York Contemporary,” said Joan Mirviss of her namesake gallery. “It was exciting to welcome many new faces to our events and see the artists engaged in conversation with a different group of art enthusiasts. Nearly eighty percent of the pieces have been spoken for with thirty-seven works sold.  Both artists have been represented by our gallery for about twenty years, so their work has already entered numerous U.S. museum collections and enjoys a strong following among western collectors.”
