Paintings & The Patriarchy: Female Invest
On December 12th, Aunt Joy was invited along to speak at “Paintings & The Patriarchy" a members only event generously hosted by Female Invest, an organisation committed to educating and empowering women to achieve financial success through various different investment approaches.
We were asked to talk about launching Aunt Joy, why it is that we are dedicated to representing women artists, investing in women artists, the current state of female representation in the industry, the artists we represent, and buying art for joy.
London Trade Art, spoke about the overall value of art as an investment, with trends similar to that of gold. As it turns out, statistically more women than men are sensible enough to choose to invest in art.
It was an incredible night. The room was full of inspiring women. We also had the opportunity to show a select collection of available works.
Art lovers buy art for many reasons. As you’re probably aware, Aunt Joy is a big advocate of buying art for joy, knowing it's something that energetically lifts a space/ human, but it’s always great to have a reminder of the financial sensibility of investing in art, particularly women artists.
