In 1980, Karen and Leon Wender opened a gallery in New York City that focused on bringing to Americans, who had been denied access during the years leading up to and throughout the Cultural Revolution, modern and contemporary Chinese culture. They exhibited works by extraordinary Chinese artists of the 19th and 20th centuries who, due to China's recent turbulence, were virtually unknown in the West, except to scholars and a handful of connoisseurs. The gallery attracted a loyal following and expanded its concentration to include Chinese furniture, scholar objects, and ancient paintings, making a name for itself with its fine and unusual collection. Over the years the gallery held numerous exhibitions, produced fine catalogs, and assembled shows of contemporary artists. The gallery was a participant in the International Asian Art Fair in NYC from 1996 through 2006, and also participated by special invitation in ARTSingapore in 2002. Karen and Leon Wender have lectured on Chinese painting and curated exhibitions internationally, earning a reputation for thoroughness, attention to detail, honesty and graciousness. Today they work with the most important museums and collectors around the globe.
