The guests indulged themselves in the artistic ambiance of the outdoor terrace in the venue, which offers a panoramic night view of the spectacular Victoria Harbour.
"Private Sales is another major business of Ravenel Art Group apart from art auction. Ravenel's Autumn Auction of Modern and Contemporary Asian Art 2009 is another significant event of the Group, following our sponsorship to a Louvre Gallery's world tour exhibition in Taiwan earlier this year." said Clara Kuo, CEO and President of Ravenel Art Group.
