- Art advisor Jimmy Chua, 59, bought a painting by young Japanese artist Toshiyuki Konishi for US$1,000 (S$1,430).
- Gallery director Sukontip Fon Ostick, 44, said she decided to take part in the Singapore Contemporary Art Show, after having planned to do a solo show at Art Stage, because it would allow her to promote more artists. She was pleased that the gallery, which did not make a sale during its first time at Art Stage last year, sold three works by Imamura for between $7,000 and $45,000 and two works at the Singapore Contemporary Art Show for a few thousand dollars.
- Lawangwangi, a gallery from Indonesia, had a good response from collectors. Its booth was dedicated to upcoming Indonesian artist Mujahidin Nurrahman and of the five works available, two sold for about US$4,000 each, with one of them drawing a waitlist of collectors.
