Subject:Selling contemporary Chinese/HK/Taiwan paintings

I lived in Shanghai for 10 years and bought a lot of art of local artists (China, HK, Taiwan). Everything was bought from legitimate galleries.
I shipped some home while I was there, but some art was blocked, for instance this linked painting of Yu Nancheng was blocked because it has Tiananmen Square in it, which is very sensitive in China. I just shipped it out of China with my household goods.
Anyway, is there a market in the US for Chinese paintings? Some of the artists are internationally known (Christies, Sotheby's auction sales, etc) but some are unknown outside of China like Yu Nancheng. I bought too much to actually display in my house so I have some in temperature controlled storage, but I am thinking maybe I thin my collection.
Does anyone have ideas about best way to sell? I paid $2k - $20K for each piece, so wouldn't want to sell in the US if there isn't a market for it in the US.
