Event Details

In celebration of London Frieze week, a week in which the arts are celebrated across the capital, the Association of Women Art Dealers (AWAD) is pleased to invite you to its autumn Social. The event is being hosted by AWAD Associate Member Jacquelyn Jubert at her space, Anise Gallery, 13a Shad Thames (right by the Design Museum). 

We are very thankful to Brownhill Insurance (aka Love Art Insurance) for supporting this event.

At 7pm a keynote address will be delivered on an important topic for industry professionals: ‘ 'What makes a great gallery website' talk by Billy Maker Executive Director, exhibit-E, the leading provider of websites for the art world and AWAD's newest Partner organisationThey launched their first exhibit-E automated website in 1998 and now serve over 400 gallery websites world wide.

Their clients include blue chip names such as Gagosian, The Willem De Kooning Foundation and artist Laurie Simmons, in addition to localised gallery brands such as AWAD's NYC Founding Member Liz Garvey's Garvey|Simon Art Access.

“Galleries rely on their websites on an everyday basis to promote, educate and communicate. Unfortunately, cumbersome user interfaces, poor graphic design, and poor programming hamper far too many websites. As the artist Laurie Simmons [whose website has been designed by exhibit-E] observes 'I find myself shocked at times that certain entities and individuals can endorse their own sites given how difficult they make it to get around.”

Organiser

Association of Women Art Dealers (AWAD)

 

The Association of Women Art Dealers (AWAD) is an international network that facilitates business and collaborations between women art dealers.

Based in London and NYC, AWAD meets on a monthly basis at both locations and also welcomes membership applications from art dealers, art advisors and gallerists based worldwide.

Since 2016, AWAD has also been piloting a Global Chapter open to 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, AWAD’s mission is to support and facilitate business and enable collaboration between women art dealers.

AWAD Members work together in many ways, including art deals, gallery and pop-up exhibitions, art fairs, sharing of shipping costs to art fairs – and the list goes on. The organisation also offers masterclasses, networking events and online platforms. We believe that by working together as a whole, we benefit on an individual basis, by enjoying increasingly successful art businesses.
