Over Memorial Day Weekend, our Spring Show was the subject of a three-minute plus television segment by the Japanese network Fujisankei Communications International. The segment was aired both here in the metropolitan New York area and in Japan.  Our thanks to Lika Kumoi and her crew for their excellent work. Their filming included brief interviews with numerous exhibitors including Kate Gabrielle, J. Douglas Vokes and Kevin McEvoy, as well as close-ups of artwork by Mariano Pilatti, Alain Bathelot, Atsuko Okamoto and Steven Walker. FCI, Inc. is one of the largest private television entities in Japan. To see the segment, click here.
