The Association of Women Art Dealers (AWAD) is pleased to announce our new collaboration with 1stDibs the online e-commerce platform.
1stDibs is a marketplace for extraordinary design. They bring together many of the best sellers and makers in art, vintage, antique and contemporary furniture, home decor, fine jewelry, watches, and fashion. Many AWAD member galleries are among the over 4500 sellers on the 1stDibs Platform.This collaboration will bring these galleries and their works of art together on a dedicated landing page.
The AWAD landing page hosts every piece of artwork that member galleries have for sale, which is of great value to collectors. At a time when anyone can sell artwork online it is reassuring to know that the work seen on the 1stDibs website is twice vetted. We have a rigorous application process for our members as does 1stDibs. For the collector, buying art from an AWAD member gallery ensures that they are supporting a woman owned small business. For our members, having a place to direct potential clients is extremely important. It is a site within a site and helps members to support each other with the confidence that their clients will see amazing art.
