AWAD at VOLTA NY 2018

Friday, March 30th, 2018

AWAD collaborated with Accola Griefen Fine Art, whose co-founders Kat Griefen and Kristen Accola are Founding Members of our NYC Chapter, for an event at this year’s VOLTA NY art fair.

The tour for members started with a viewing of the Maria Hupfield piece on the VOLTA video wall, followed by a stop at the Nancy Margolis Gallery to see oil on panel pieces by still life and figurative painter Aubrey Levinthal. Kat and Kristen then provided a talk and Q&A with the artist Judy Pfaff at their gallery’s stand. The tour concluded at the Kopeikin Gallery, where Katrin Korfmann gave insight into her bird’s eye view photographic pieces.

In mind of the pervading under-representation of female artists, yet with so much talent, we invite you to research these artists and follow their activities online. Name recognition, in combination with spreading the word to others, is key to propel women into the spotlight. As the saying goes, knowledge is power.

AWAD at the Affordable Art Fair, Battersea

Wednesday, March 28th, 2018

Several AWAD members returned to exhibit at the Affordable Art Fair in Battersea earlier this month. 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.
