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.

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).

Terrorism for Art Galleries and Dealers – La Playa

Tuesday, May 22nd, 2018

TERRORISM INSURANCE FOR ART DEALERS

None of us like to contemplate terrorism, particularly experiencing it in our own country. But the reality of the 21st Century is it’s here and with the increased use of vehicles and lone shooters causing chaos on the high street, it’s a more tangible and rapidly perpetrated threat than ever before.

If an incident occurs, clearly your first concern will be for your safety and that of your loved ones. But have you considered what a terrorist incident in your area could mean for your business?

As a business owner, the government-backed insurance protection provided is different from what you have as a private individual.

Did you know, for example, that damage caused by a terrorist attack to private property is automatically covered by insurers in both the US and the UK and in the case of a major incident underwritten by the government, but damage to commercial interests are not?

Terrorism is most commonly defined as the ‘use of force or violence and/or threat for political, religious, or ideological purposes and with the intention to influence any government and/or to put the public or any section of the public in fear’. Along with cyber attack, nuclear damage, political violence and radioactivity, it is a standard exclusion on commercial business policies.

You need to opt in for terrorism insurance for your business to recoup your financial loss to stock and property and get your business up and running again quickly. It is also important to note that if you purchase Business Interruption insurance which reimburses you for loss of earnings or increased cost of working as a result of an incident, this is normally only as a result of a physical damage loss.

If your own premises or stock are not actually damaged by a terrorist attack you may well find yourself seriously out of pocket because your customers are steering clear of your gallery or even the entire neighbourhood. This can also happen in the event of a bomb scare or other terrorist threat, even if no actual incident takes place.

You need to consider whether your business will be affected by disruption to local infrastructure, road closures and services as a result. Cover for this may be purchased as an extension.

Depending on your circumstances, terrorism insurance for specialist art galleries and dealers can be expensive and hard to get hold of when not attached to a package policy. Make sure you’re talking to a broker who knows the market and can get you an all-inclusive Dealer’s package, or access quality stand-alone insurance.

Call us or drop us a line in the UK on: +44 1223 200650 or in the US on: +1 646 665 7737 to discuss your needs.
