New York, NY (PRWEB) February 28, 2011
Eli Wilner & Company has formed a partnership with the China National Culture & Art Co., Ltd, with headquarters in Beijing, under the direction of Mr. ChangHe Lu.
Eli Wilner was honored to participate in a ribbon-cutting ceremony at the National Art Museum of China, in Beijing. The ceremony opened an exhibition of recent paintings by a group of renowned contemporary Chinese Realist painters, included Yang Feiyun. Eli Wilner & Company created 14 replica frames for this exhibition, which was composed of meticulous copies of paintings by European Old Masters, created by the artists over the last year.
During the artists' visit to the United States in February, Mr. Wilner was one of the keynote speakers at an event in their honor hosted at the Chinese Ministry of Culture, in New York City.
Mr. Wilner looks forward to many more opportunities to work with the great museums, artists and collections of China.
