AWAD, the Association of Women Art Dealers, is pleased to announce a new Member of our Global chapter, Julie Taylor.

Dr. Julie Taylor is founder and director of Guns & Rain, the Johannesburg-based gallery specialising in contemporary African art.

Founded in 2014, Guns & Rain was one of Africa’s very first online galleries, established to address the under-representation of African art online and globally. The gallery works with contemporary artists from across southern Africa, including South Africa, Zimbabwe, Namibia and Botswana. Taylor now has a permanent Johannesburg space with a monthly exhibition programme. She was born and raised in Zimbabwe and holds degrees from Oxford and Cambridge. She is author of Naming the Land, a book based on her doctoral research about San identity in northern Namibia, and is based in Johannesburg. Before Guns & Rain, Julie ran Google’s communications for Africa. She is halfway through a Masters in History of Art at Wits University in Johannesburg.
