I am pleased to report that I have returned to the arena of public speaking. Last month, three other panelists and myself were guests of Covington Capital Management at the “Women of Power” luncheon at the Jonathan Club in Santa Monica. Over 100 attendees gathered to hear a discussion about the nature of investing in art, it’s similarities and dissimilarities with other commodities.
The following week I was the guest speaker on a Webinar for Klein Artist Works in Chicago. Thirty artists were logged on internationally; the subject was the current state of the Artworld and aspects of career development for artists. The first question came from an artist online in India. It was 6:00 pm in Los Angeles and 7:30 am the following day in New Delhi. A global world, indeed!
Last week, I was invited to join a panel at Art San Diego moderated by the Director of the Timken Museum. This panel dealt with various aspects of collecting including acquisition, resale, installation, insurance and legal considerations. It’s clear that people want to gather, converse and learn. For me, it is always a pleasure to educate and to share information.
