Do you want to work with a fine art gallery?
Want to learn how to get represented by an art gallery or agent?
Susan Mumford is a commercial fine art dealer and consultant, who is the Founder of the Association of Women Art Dealers, and runs the Be Smart About Art Academy, a professional development school for fine artists in London.
You can download to the podcast (audio only) here:
During this one hour webinar Susan will:
- give you the fundamentals to get representation and or to create a healthy, successful working relationship with a dealer or agent.
- provide essential information for artists and makers on what to do and not to get represented or to collaborate with a gallery or agent. Indeed, a recent survey by the Be Smart About Art Academy suggests that only 36% of galleries are actively interested in attracting more artists to work with.
- discuss the dynamics of the artist/agent relationship, including expectations of both parties and top tips for building long-term mutually beneficial working collaborations.
Please note: Susan’s experience is specifically in the fine art world, and she has great advice if you would like to work with more fine art based galleries or agents. Fine art galleries and craft galleries do operate differently, and this webinar will be specifically of interest to those creatives who are working or want to work closer to the fine art market, such as print makers, sculptors, metal work, photographers, textile and fibre art, ceramic art etc.

By 2009 she recognised a need for increased transparency and collaborative working relationships amongst her peers and founded the Association of Women Art Dealers (AWAD), a non-profit organisation facilitating business and collaborations between art dealers, gallerists and art consultants.
In early 2012, following mentoring a number of art professionals on a one-to-one basis and recognising a need for professional development support in the art world, Susan started the Be Smart About Art programme.
