WHO WE ARE
The Association of Women in the Arts (AWITA) evolved out of an informal group of art professionals who met on a regular basis to share knowledge, expertise and contacts. Since its inception in February 2016, AWITA has brought together inspirational women working in the arts world to share contacts, support each other through mentoring, collaborate, and subsequently create a new kind of community. AWITA membership has grown steadily and represents a cross section of females in the art world: gallerists, collectors, auction house representatives, arts journalists, museum and public sector professionals, art fair representatives/directors, academics, family offices, art advisors, academics and dealers.
Our advisory board is comprised of exceptional women who have successfully developed careers in their respective fields. AWITA board members have extensive experience in the management, leadership and promotion of the visual arts.
