New York Art World, also known as "NYAW" is devoted to furthering the cause of the visual arts in the New York metropolitan area. NYAW's mission is to provide a "space" for New York artists and their art community. The site services queries from the general public as well as the extended art community via the World Wide Web. As the name suggests the primary focus of the service is on the arena of New York Art World and the artists who make it up; in the evolving cultural milieu of New York city.
New York has long been regarded as the arts capital. However, many artists in New York do not have access and are not part of the gallery scene. With that in mind, one of the goals of NYAW is to give a visibility and a presence to some of these unknown artists who are, nevertheless, highly skilled and talented, but not as well-connected as some of their counterparts.Our Shipping Policy

After you send in your Secure Order Form, with your Billing Information, we will send you an email indicating the exact amount to be billed to your credit card (which will include Shipping & Handling, and Sales Tax for New York state only). We would then ask you to email a confirmation of these charges before the transaction is processed.
