Volta 14 Art Fair Tour through Kristen Knupp’s Eyes

Wednesday, October 17th, 2018

I traveled to Basel in June 2018, taking the train from Geneva and arriving at the Volta 14 Art Fair just in time to meet AWAD’s Susan Mumford, along with Volta’s David Goodman and Brian Fee along with our tour group.  A collaboration between Art Decision Magazine, AWAD and Volta, we met in the entrance of Volta’s new venue, a light-filled, spacious former industrial building housing about 75 international galleries.  The tours’ focus, fittingly given AWAD’s involvement, was to focus on showing our group women-owned galleries and women artists. We saw six galleries in total, the highlights of which are detailed below.

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.

Art Dealers’ Bootcamp Competition 2018

Tuesday, June 12th, 2018

Attention all emerging and mid-career Art Dealers! The fifth edition of The Art Dealer’s Bootcamp, presented by AWAD Partner Be Smart About Art, is back with a refined revamp of the course. This is your opportunity to win a chance to further your career significantly by applying to the Art Dealers’ Bootcamp Competition 2018.

We have developed the 1-2-1 part of the program to give you more individual guidance from BSAA Founder and art world specialist, Susan J Mumford. There will be a series of webinars aimed at positively impacting the bottom line of your business and all attendees this year will also have the option to attend privately.

Have you wondered what terms to put in place with artists? A course perk being launched this time around is the provision of an Artist-Gallery Contract. which we’re commissioning from specialist art lawyer Anthony Misquitta. The general terms will apply regardless of your location, and the contract will be based on consignments of works. (There will be a recorded Q&A with Anthony so that you can have your questions addressed, based on your own needs.)

Moreover, you’ll guide through the rest of 2018 alongside peers, who, like you, are experiencing a swiftly shifting landscape. Are fairs still relevant? If so, which ones? This and much more will be discussed during LIVE sessions as well as in the online discussion threads that you’ll be able to access throughout the course and beyond, as a graduate of the Art Dealers’ Bootcamp.

Does this sound useful? Fill out this application form to be in with a shot at winning private mentoring sessions and discounts towards this year’s competition (which also serves as your application to attend the program).
