This updated and expanded version of the classic “Business of Being and Artist) provides every visual artist with a useful practical guide to develop and build their own professional art career.
Daniel Grant writes about the experiences of dozens of practicing artists, describing their real-life challenges and the solutions they found to overcome them. This book covers everything from art gallery etiquette to the legal rights of artists, including chapters on:
- Making the transition from school to the working world
- Developing relationships with art dealers
- Handling criticism and rejection
- and more..
New to this edition are expanded sections that look at utilizing exhibition venues from sidewalk fairs to regional biennials to national parks, selling in other countries, talking with collectors about your art and yourself, avoiding the perils of defamation, transporting and travelling with art, using “greener” materials, and the experience of becoming an artist later in life and of artists’ children.
