Business For Good
Goshen Art Gallery LLP
About the Company:
Goshen Art is a family heritage business of 30 years specialising in the fine arts, and supporting artists in need. We are a trusted brand by the local and overseas customers.
We didn't start off as an art gallery; our family started off as bakers running a small but brisk business in Chip Bee Gardens 40+ years ago. We were giving out leftover bakes to the needy artists in the neighbourhood back then, then art materials, and bought first few paintings from the local artists here. What started off as a passion and act of humanity has evolved into a business that spans for 30 years and counting.
We are the first and probably the only gallery that gives a salary to the artists even before any works was sold back then.To date, we have impacted over 300+ artists locally and overseas - even covering travel, medical and funeral expenses for some.
Goshen Art was started by Faith Lum & Jack Yu. Mr Yu being the youngest son of the renowned gallerists - Johnny and Grace Yu. Besides continuing the legacy of the art consultancy business and keeping it sustainable, they both set sight to further the social impact by providing training and working opportunities to artists-in-need. Hence ArtSE was birthed, and that remains the Education arm and a burgeoning Creative Community for Goshen that embodies the true spirit of Artisanal excellence and Craftsmanship with the right values.
With ArtSE, we also started the School of Values - with Art Therapy products and customized art curriculum-in-a-box for people with mobility issues or even overseas market. Our art and crafting workshops are also favoured by many Corporate clients.
ArtSE has also trained a group of disabled artisans who produces quality Corporate Gifts and Personalized art services and products.
