Fine Art Shippers Spoke with Art Lovers Australia about the Current Situation in the Art Industry

Industry: Art & Design

Fine Art Shippers had a chance to speak with Art Lovers Australia to know their thoughts on the coronavirus crisis and the current situation facing the art industry.

New York, NY (PRUnderground) May 20th, 2020

The coronavirus pandemic caused by COVID-19 is changing the way we live. It has already impacted millions of people and all spheres of human activity, bringing new challenges and affecting economies around the globe. The art industry is no exception. Numerous art galleries, artists, dealers, and auction houses have been forced to move online as it is the only way for them to continue operating during the coronavirus outbreak. At Fine Art Shippers, we had a chance to speak with Nancy Donaldson, Owner and Director at Art Lovers Australia, who shared her thoughts on the current situation facing the art industry.

Art Lovers Australia is an online gallery and art marketplace focused on the work of contemporary Australian artists. It was created to support emerging and mid-career artists, and it continues to pursue its goal even in these difficult times of the coronavirus pandemic. While Art Lovers Australia has always been an online platform, the global crisis hit it hard too. With art being a luxury item, sales initially fell, and the gallery’s owners had to reorganize the business expenditure and renegotiate contracts to stay afloat and continue supporting their artists. They eliminated any expenses that were not adding value for money and dug deep into their data to control all the vital signs more closely. Finally, Art Lovers Australia focused all the effort on helping 500+ artists get online representation. It was the right strategy to deal with the coronavirus crisis, and it worked.

According to Nancy Donaldson, there are now hundreds of new buyers discovering Art Lovers Australia each month. The coronavirus has made people more online savvy and showed them an alternative way of buying art, right from the comfort of their homes. A whole new trend of art purchases is emerging now, with video conference calls as a tool for buying art without any extra costs. The pandemic has greatly transformed the art industry, and many of these changes are likely to remain with us even after the crisis eases.

At Fine Art Shippers, we fully support Art Lovers Australia in their pursuit to help emerging and mid-career artists not only survive in these uncertain times but also advance their careers.
