Store Street Framing Present – The Exhibition Frame Range

Tuesday, September 11th, 2018

Building on feedback from AWAD members, the London framers and AWAD Partners Store Street Framing have put together a selection of frame mouldings specifically focused on galleries and dealers.

The aim was to identify ‘gallery standard’ mouldings that could be offered at the most competitive prices possible.

Having searched far and wide, the framing team came up with a tight selection of frames that cover all the framing basics.

– Box frames in black and white, plus a raw wood version that can be painted or stained.

– Tray frames in raw wood, to take canvases18mm and 36mm deep.

All the mouldings are available from stock for quick turnaround, and AWAD members receive special discounted pricing.

Thursday, April 26th, 2018

 

Workshop on MAY 1ST

The Association of Women Art Dealers and our partner for professional development, Be Smart About Art, is pleased to offer Using Your iPhone & iPad Like a Pro, to Get More Followers and Sell More Art! The workshop will be held on May 1st from 3:00 – 4:30 at the Susan Eley Fine Art Gallery on 46 90th Street, New York, New York.

We are all so used to pulling out our phones and tablets and just snapping away – whether they’re pictures of art, our pets, kids and dinner. Not all of those photo’s work for their intended purpose. Art business promotion and brand creation on social media platforms like instagram are now critical to success. Consequently, it’s increasingly  important for people to understand how to effectively use smartphones and tablets in art businesses today.

This information rich, practical and hands-on workshop led by photographer Chris E King will cover:

  • Tips on how pros use smartphones to snap and edit photos plus videos (including apps to use);
  • How to upload images and videos to social media / YouTube / other platforms;
  • Training to help you export images from your phone + back-up images so that you don’t lose them;
  • Trouble-shooting.

This workshop is open to all. To register follow this link to Eventbrite.

 

Specialists Speak: Women Art Dealers on Feminist Artists

Monday, April 9th, 2018

In honour of International Women’s Day last month, Invaluable invited seven members of AWAD to choose their favourite artists whose work addresses issues of feminism.

Georgina Bexon, International Advisor on Modern and Contemporary South Asian Art, and member of our London Chapter, chose Mithy Sen:

Born in West Bengal and now living and working in New Delhi, for more than two decades Mithy Sen has been at the forefront of a generation of contemporary female artists questioning and negotiating feminist issues in South Asia. Sen’s work moves with ease, and spontaneously, between genres – drawing, painting, sculpture, collage, performance, installation, video, (not to mention that she is also a poet) and it is our loss that her name is not better known in the West. She enjoys wide visibility in India, and also has a growing international profile with solo exhibitions and residencies in London, Berlin, Vienna, New York, Los Angeles, Singapore and Tokyo.

Other members who took part include:

JoAnne Artman

Geneviève Lévesque

Galia Kirilova

Joanna Bryant

Kristina Huntington

Susan Mumford

Marine Tanguy

On the final day of the fair, the Association also represented female gallerists and artists by inviting Friend of AWAD, Michael Barnett, to moderate a panel discussion on ‘Painting Women Back into the Picture’ as part of the fair’s Sofa Sessions.

Michael, the STATE-F22 Editor at Large and Special Projects Lead at Art Bermondsey Project Space, and the panel talked about the important role that men have to play in gender equality, in line with the UN Women initiative HeForShe. They also shared their thoughts on women in the art world, and how the sector has changed to be more inclusive and accessible to women artists and art dealers.
