Join Susan Mumford, trans-Atlantic art world expert, entrepreneur, speaker, author and mentor, who founded both the Association of Women Art Dealers (AWAD) and Be Smart About Art, for this collectors’ Tour and Talk at the 21st National Open Art Exhibition.

NOA is one of the UK’s leading art competitions, open to amateur and professional artists in the UK and Ireland. Now in its 21st year, this exhibition is set to be a landmark in the Competition’s history, held at an extraordinary venue, the Bargehouse, Oxo Tower Wharf on London’s South Bank. Collectors can be sure that every piece of art exhibited has already been selected by a panel of expert judges. The panel changes each year and comprises some of the most experienced and influential figures in the art world, from Royal Academicians to critics, curators and professionals.

About the Event:

Guests will gather in reception for refreshments before making their way through the exhibition. Walking through the exhibition, Susan will give collectors a unique perspective on art, how to choose the artwork and manage your collection.  She will give a talk on collecting and the art world + Q&A over a glass of fizz in Gallery 12.

* Tickets are exclusively released for NOA VIP Collectors from 2nd August – until 29th September. Tickets will be be available to the public starting 30th September.

Please be aware that this venue has lift access to the second floor only and that guests will be required to walk upstairs.

About the Tour Guide: 

A game-changer in the 21st Century art world, Susan’s an entrepreneur, mentor, speaker, moderator and author. While running a gallery in Soho, London, she founded the Association of Women Art Dealers (AWAD), a non-profit trade network that now has multiple chapters: London, New York and Global. AWAD’s mission is to facilitate business and collaborations between and for women art dealers. Several years later, she started a social enterprise called Be Smart About Art, with the motto: “Art is your life. Make it your living.” This online-accessible platform helps creative professionals thrive in a changing world. In late 2015, her first book was published: Art is your life. Make it your living. While she’s based in London, Susan spends a notable time travelling to the USA and Continental Europe, visiting art fairs, delivering lectures, running panel discussions and more.
