Honorary Curators:​ Julie Z. Wynn & Naera Kim About ART SHE SAYS​: ART SHE SAYS​ is an online magazine and offline community that highlights savvy, influential women in the arts. Based in New York City, the platform was founded by former Tang Art Advisory and Hamptons Magazine employee, Eliza Sara Ali, whose mission is to bring women to the forefront of the art world, particularly those who embody the “artrepreneur”—an innovator of the arts; one who breaks rules and disrupts the status quo. ART SHE SAYS​ is committed to becoming the largest industry resource that gives a voice to female emerging and established artists, art dealers, curators, collectors, designers, and innovators. At a time

where women in the arts have traditionally been underserved, ART SHE SAYS is breaking the rules, and disrupting the status quo, of a traditionally male-dominated industry and they invite you to join in on the fun.

The flagship gallery opened in St Barth, French West Indies in 2011, with the aim of bringing leading artists and art to St Barth, making a cultural contribution to the island and acting as a window onto the global art scene for residents and visitors. The gallery regularly exhibits in Miami and Monaco and most recently opened its new permanent location in SoHo, New York. Prior to launching ​SPACE GALLERY ST BARTH​, partner Natalie Clifford served as the director of Eden Rock Gallery, which yielded a series of collaborations with other galleries including Mary Boone Gallery, Tony Shafrazi Gallery, and Gagosian Galleries with a number of significant exhibitions including Richard Prince, Will Cotton and Piotr Uklanski. As a female business owner and gallerist, Clifford has built a strong exhibition program of leading artists, curating shows year round as well as participating in various art fairs internationally including the Venice Biennale, pop-up galleries and museum exhibitions including at the BOCA Museum of Art. In the new SoHo location, ​SPACE GALLERY ST BARTH​ takes away from a sterile gallery environment to create a space for conversation, engagement and accessibility to art, offering a very personal approach to clients and growing their collections.

WfWI helps such women rebuild their lives after war's devastation through a year-long tiered program that begins with direct financial aid and emotional counseling and includes life skills (e.g., literacy, numeracy) training if necessary, rights awareness education, health education, job skills training and small business development. The organization was co-founded in 1993 by ​Zainab Salbi​, an ​Iraqi American​ who is herself a survivor of the ​Iran–Iraq War​ and Salbi's then-husband Amjad Atallah. From 2012 to 2014, WfWI was led by Afshan Khan, a long-time former executive with UNICEF who became WfWI's first new CEO since founder Zainab Salbi stepped down to devote more time to her writing and lecturing. Laurie Adams is the current President.
