Press Release Placement Results

This two-part auction took 8 months to place, from one press release. NY Times' Eve Kahn covered it prior to session two. To view the original press release, please contact me.

The sale of a painting by HH Dorje Chang Buddha III now has the record for being most expensive Chinese painting by dimension. Client's post sale report on this was widely reported. I circulated it internationally on PR Web.

Hired to write 2,000 word cover story on the first large-scale US exhibition of Vietnamese art and culture.
Now that the Chinese stock market is volatile, everyone is questioning its impact on the Chinese art market. An editor asked me to reach out to my contacts in the field to get their opinions. I submitted a list of contacts, drafted the questions, wrote the story.
