Galerie Vallois 35/41
La Galerie Vallois Art Modern et Contemporary was founded in 1983 by Robert Vallois. Today spread over two spaces in the heart of Saint-Germain-des-Prés, at 35 and 41 rue de Seine, it adjoins the Art Deco gallery founded in 1971 by Robert and Cheska Vallois. Since four years it promotes the younger generation of artists from Benin, devoting from 2012 exhibitions to contemporary sculptors of Benin. Together with a group of antique shops of Saint Germain des Pres gallery sponsors the Art Centre Lobozounkpa in Cotonou.
The Museum of Ethnography opened in 1900, but its collections date all the way back to the natural history cabinets of the 17th century. The museum also features objects that were collected during 18th century expeditions, as well as the results of the 19th century's round-the-world sailing trips and Sven Hedin's expeditions in the early 20th century. In addition, countless missionaries, diplomats and private individuals who have donated objects to the collections. You can see much of this in the museum's permanent exhibitions, particularly in the open storage that features over 6,000 objects on display.

Whitehawk Antique Shows
Thirty-four years ago, Antique Indian Arts collector, Don Bennett, thought it would be a good idea to get some of his fellow collectors together so that they could buy, sell and trade from each other. Bennett invited about 100 dealers to join him at the Santa Fe Hilton Hotel and dealers and collectors went from room to room. Those dealers who couldn’t get into the hotel sold in the parking lot from the trunks of their cars. Thus, the Whitehawk shows were born. Thirty-four years later, many of the original dealers plus plenty of new ones (those who have only been around 15-20 years!) still come together every August in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Whitehawk Antique Shows, Inc. consists of two shows: the Antique American Indian Art Show and the Antique Ethnographic Art Show. The venue may have changed and shows are set up with gallery-like booths with professional lighting, but the spirit remains the same... dealers and collectors coming together to buy, sell and trade and indulge in a shared passion.
Woolley & Wallis
Described by the Antiques Trade Gazette as "arguably the most exciting provincial saleroom in the country", Woolley and Wallis has lived up to that title in recent years with a string of record-breaking sales and notable prices. Of the twelve lots to make over a million pounds at regional auction houses, Woolley and Wallis has sold nine of them, including a Chinese spinach-green jade water buffalo - for a hammer price of £3.4m in 2009. The Asian Art auction held in May 2010 became the highest ever grossing sale for a provincial auction house, and at £7.3m the sale in question eclipsed the equivalent sales at all three of the London salerooms. From 2010 to the present Woolley and Wallis has been the highest grossing regional saleroom in the U.K. In April 2012 a pair of natural pearl earrings sold for £1.6m, a record for any Jewellery department outside of London. As the leading regional auctioneer in the U.K. Woolley and Wallis, who were founded in 1884, hold around thirty specialist sales a year spread between nine departments headed up by leading experts in their field. The saleroom prides itself on combining a high level of expertise and professionalism, with the friendly attitude and personal service that clients have come to expect from this long-standing firm.
