The business of being an artist

Daniel Grant (Author)
"The third edition of this classic artists' reference teaches emerging artists the techniques necessary to market and sell artwork, both on their own and through dealers. This new, thoroughly updated and expanded edition contains extensive new sections about today's issues: how to create and market art on a Web site; how artists have handled controversy and censorship; copyright and trademark protection on the Internet; and an expanded section on the new realities of fund-raising and funding sources ... Unlike other guides, this book addresses the artist as a whole, including an examination of the emotional and psychological issues specific to being an artist as well as the smartest strategies for "investing" in an art career. Detailed coverage is offered of exhibitions, contracts with dealers and print publishers, marketing and advertising outlets, grants and commissions, and much more. Successful artists also describe their own experiences, offering realistic examples of career development and expert advice for overcoming the pressures that arise when art becomes business. Art world insider Daniel Grant teaches emerging and established artists the essential information they need"--Publisher's description
