Join us for the fourteenth season of our Chinese Art & History Group. Our intent for 2015 will be to identify Museums that could trace their Chinese collections back to a significant person. Our muse was the book “The Hare with Amber Eyes.” It is a story of a family’s collection of Netsuke passed down through five generations.

These lunches and discussion sessions to follow will permit the free and open exchange of questions, ideas and observations among study group members and the lecturers. The seven lectures, one movie, and lunches, which will be held at 1010 Fifth Avenue South in Naples, are offered for a registration rate of $345 per person (Chinese New Year luncheon Feb 3, 2015 is at an additional cost). While the lectures will be open to the public, only members of the Chinese Art & History Study Group will be able to enjoy the private lunches and discussion sessions which follow.
