Yes, you CAN splendour in Fine Art, ESPECIALLY in this economy!

Rough ride in markets? Try fine art, experts suggest  – Monday, October 27, 2008  CBC News

As many people anxiously eye the daily rise and fall of stock markets around the world, some experts are advising they look into alternative investments like fine art.

The art market has a life of its own, and “prices have gone up tremendously in the past five years,” Montreal curator Paul Maréchal told CBC News.

Not only are high-profile works by masters such as Pablo Picasso or Claude Monet fetching record prices, the markets for contemporary art and for emerging artists are also seeing a boom.

In an economic downturn, savvy investors can find deals by snapping up affordable paintings, prints and drawings for sale later, Maréchal said.

“There will be less competition in the sales rooms and at galleries and so on, and so forth. If you are fortunate to have some money, it’s a blessed time to buy art, definitely,” he said.

Outside of art, other investment alternatives include real estate and wine futures. However, caution must still be taken with these markets, said Jeremy Tabarrok, an investment executive with ScotiaMcLeod.

“Just as with the stock market, wise investing through art [means] leaning on experts in the galleries, experts in the field. You can actually bring a profit with it as well.”

The LEANNE LAINE ART GALLERY at Tastings, Fort Myers

Over the years we have shown and discussed on my website the Leanne Laine Art Gallery at Tastings, which now has five locations in a short period of time. Tastings is a one-of-a-kind wine bar offering new levels of experience to everyone from the novice to the sommelier. With over 100 wines in stock, Tastings boasts one of the largest selections in the world for wines-by-the-taste. It also boasts as being the home to the Official Leanne Laine Art Gallery.  Jennifer Wadsworth of Tastings in Fort Myers has a diverse collection of my art works in the Gallery which are also for sale right off the merlot-colored walls.

 “It adds to the ambience — the fun of the space,” Wadsworth explained.

 And customers agree:  “Last weekend, we purchased her painting entitled Crimson Craze , described as a delightfully intoxicating blend that ultimately find the taste buds infatuated with the lure of dark cherry and spicy aroma, and it now hangs proudly and boldly in our office.” – Brian Yerkes

 I am so very honored and continually grateful for the ongoing feedback of my work and how it’s impacted a positive outcome not only for myself but also for Tastings since starting our relationship with them.

If you are going to be in Fort Myers, we would love to have you stop by. Enjoy some great wines, delicious food, and ask for a tour of my collections of works. If you do not see a piece you are looking for on the walls, Jennifer and her staff will be more than happy to assist you in your order.
