The Present Is Female

About this Curation

We are proud to continue bucking the trend and be on the right side of history, with art by women artists accounting for nearly 70% of sales on Bluethumb. Historically female artists have been locked out of the male-dominated gallery system, making up only 40% of artists represented in Australian commercial galleries, and Australia is one of the more gender balanced countries in the world! Click here to read last year's 15,000 Artworks Sold Report to learn more about how we're helping to close the arts gender pay gap.


In honour of International Women's Day this week, this curation celebrates our female artists. The future may be female, but so is the present on Bluethumb!
