One of them is the collaborative exhibition which the five permanent members of the Japanese Art Dealers Association (JADA) have been putting on at this time of the year since 2009.

This quintet comprises Sebastian Izzard, Leighton Longhi, Erik Thomsen, the Mika Gallery and Koichi Yanagi, all of whom are based in NYC.

JADA 2017 will be based in its usual venue, the Ukrainian Institute of America on East 79th Street, and will be showing a mix of Japanese prints, paintings, screens, ceramics and sculpture lacquer and other works of art from March 11-13.

ARMS AND ARMOUR

LEIGHTON R LONGHI, NEW YORK CITY

Among the highlights will be this impressive full suit of armour, left, offered by Leighton R Longhi which is priced at $350,000.

Designed by the Edo period master Noguchi Zesai, it is made from iron and other metals, lacquered leather, animal skins and chain mail. The armour is one of only two known that have their address, signature and date (corresponding to 1689).

As well as their collaborative show, participants are holding longer-running selling exhibitions in their own individual New York galleries.
