The Trade in the Arts in Asia

from the Days of the Silk Road to Now

TAASA members and friends are invited to a talk by Ray Tregaskis and a private viewing of the upcoming exhibition at Silk Road Asian Art.

Ray Tregaskis is perhaps the best-known commercial operator in the field of Asian Arts in Australia and has been for some forty years. Ray will discuss how the public interest has changed over this time and with it, how commercial factors have morphed over the years.

Trade has always been a driving factor with the development of the arts of Asia, and the ancient trading routes that were the Silk Road are a testament to this. But how does the trade look today? Ray will give an insight.

RSVP: By Monday 16 March to this email address only:
