Event description


The next AWAD Global Chapter monthly meeting takes place on Tuesday 27th June and it is open to Women Art Dealers (including gallerists, art dealers, art consultants and art advisors) from all over the world.

Meeting time:

12pm PST / 3pm EST / 7pm UK

As the AWAD Global Chapter meetings take place online, you can attend from anywhere with good internet access.

GUEST SPEAKER: Charlene Gill from LaPlaya Fine Art Insurance – specialty brokers for industry and an AWAD partner.

The business of buying and selling art involves very specific risk exposures – which can change even from hour to hour as the work is installed, de-installed, handled and shipped worldwide. Are you clued up on the insurance coverage you need as a dealer or gallery? What happens when you’re at an art fair? What are your liabilities? What about work you’ve loaned? Do you have the right Bailee Legal Liability coverage?

Specialist insurance broker Charlene Gill presents ‘Your Insurance Masterpiece’ – a quick-and-dirty, jargon-free masterclass on designing the right protection for you, your business and your clients.

The meeting will be run by AWAD’s Founder and CEO Susan Mumford and will welcome business updates from all attendees, members and visitors alike. This is an opportunity to network with like-minded art dealers, exchange ideas for potential collaborations and input from peers, and to provide recommendations for suppliers, platforms and more.

About the AWAD Global Chapter

The Association of Women Art Dealers launched the Global Chapter in January 2016, following the launch of the London Chapter in 2010 and the NYC Chapter in 2014. The Global Chapter is anticipated to be a fully formed chapter by the end of 2017.

The Global Chapter monthly meetings take place entirely online, with a focus of supporting women art dealers who are not able to attend London and New York meetings and events. Art dealers are spread far and wide around the globe, and AWAD is keen to support women art dealers regardless of location. Notably, our mission is to support and facilitate business and enable collaboration between women art dealers.

Susan will facilitate a roundtable style conversation for all attendees, in which they are able to grow their dealer network while providing one another ideas in a collaborative fashion.

Guest speakers will attend meetings to provide insights for art dealers’ ongoing professional development, with subjects ranging from contracts to working with interior designers.

Tips for attending the live online session:
If possible, watch using an ethernet internet connection (this is physical broadband). The second best connection is reliable wifi (ideally with a minimum of 8megabytes download and 2 megabytes upload, which can be checked at The third and final option is connecting using data, which is not recommended.
