In this volume, artists will find their own questions reflected and addressed, including: •How does an artist penetrate the inner circle of the art world? •How do museums choose exhibits? •How can an artist reach critics and get feedback? •How do artists make a living, and how much can they expect to make? •What are the “rules” of the art world? •Why is it all so mysterious?

In this hyper-competitive world, the latest software and hardware, as it applies to creativity and promotion, is part of a language you must be conversant in.

Find Out What They Didn't Teach You in Art School The most comprehensive guide of its kind, Art/Work gives artists of every level the tools they need to make it in an art world so competitive one dealer likens it to "The Sopranos, except nobody gets killed." Whether you're an art school grad looking for a gallery, a mid-career artist managing a busy studio, or someone just thinking about becoming a professional artist, this indispensable resource will help you build your career and protect yourself along the way. Unlike other creative professionals, visual artists don't have agents or managers. You have to do it all yourself, at least until you find gallery representation -- and even then, there are important business and legal issues you need to understand to stay in control of your career and ensure you're being treated fairly. Heather Darcy Bhandari, a gallery director, and Jonathan Melber, an arts lawyer, walk you through these issues so that you can essentially act as your own manager and agent. They show you, for example, how to tackle business basics such as tracking inventory and preparing invoices; how to take legal precautions like registering a copyright and drafting consignment forms; how to use promotional tools like websites and business cards; and how to approach career decisions such as choosing the right venue to show your work. In addition to drawing on their own experiences, Bhandari and Melber interviewed nearly one hundred curators, dealers, and other arts professionals, in cities across the country, about what they expect from and look for in artists. The authors also talked to a host of artists about their careers and the lessons they've learned navigating the art world. The book is full of their entertaining anecdotes and candid advice. No matter what kind of artist you are -- or want to be -- this book will help you. Art/Work covers everything you need to know to succeed, saving you from having to learn it all the hard way -- and letting you spend more time making art.

Fine artists are taught many things about the craft of art in the various art schools and university art programs, but rarely do they learn much if anything about how to make a career of their talents. The Business of Being an Artist contains information on how artists may develop a presence in the art world that leads to sales. The book contains information on how artists can learn to sell their work directly to the public with an understanding of the principles of marketing and sales as they're applicable to works of art. Artists will also learn how to find a suitable gallery that will arrange sales and commissions and how to set up a contractual relationship with the dealer that is both equitable and profitable. Among the topics covered in The Business of Being an Artist are: the range of exhibition opportunities for emerging and mid-career artists; how to set prices for artwork; when or if artists should pay to advance their careers; how artists may communicate with the public; applying for loans, grants, and fellowships; areas of the law that concern artists; using art materials safely; online sales and marketing, and much more. In addition to all of this priceless information, The Business of Being an Artist includes a unique discussion of some of the emotional issues that face artists throughout their careers, such as working alone, confronting stereotypes, handling criticisms and rejection, the glare of publicity, and the absence of attention. Without a doubt, The Business of Being an Artist is a must-have book for every artist ready to turn their talent into a successful business.

Street art and graffiti are a familiar sight in cities around the world. Neighbourhoods painted with murals are popular with tourists and tagged walls become backdrops for fashion shoots and music videos. Banksy is a global celebrity whose work sells for astonishing prices. Millions of photographs of street art are saved on smartphones, uploaded to social media and displayed on t-shirts and other merchandise. But are street art and graffiti the same thing, or do they have different histories, meanings and practitioners? Who makes street art? Who buys it? Can it be exhibited in a gallery or must it be located on the street? Why have museums started collecting street art? Is there a commercial market for street art? And will it even exist in the future? This strikingly illustrated book explores every aspect of street art, from making and photographing it to stealing and selling it. Artists working in the streets reveal both their passion for street art and ambivalence about its commodification. The rise, fall and rise again of street art in the art market is told through revealing encounters with collectors and auction houses in Paris, London, Melbourne and beyond. Based on twenty years of research in the graffiti and street art scenes, Street Art World is the first book to provide a history and context for the words and images that appear in cities all around the world. Inviting the reader into a realm that is usually hidden, it will enthral all those who enjoy this global phenomenon.

If you would like practical advice and useful ideas for artists on websites, email marketing, blogging and more, you've found an excellent source. The whole world, it seems, is online. The internet has changed everything. To say the internet is a disruptive force is an understatement. While it's taken a toll on legacy industries such as physical galleries, it's opened up new opportunities for visual artists. Too many artists have been told at some point to get a job. And, that making and selling art was too hard, and only a lucky few got their tickets punched to success. If that were ever true, it's a lie now. Artists alive in this generation are the first ever to have tools that allow them to connect with buyers and sell to them directly. The internet has changed our buying habits. We can now get so close and learn so much about anything we want to buy, and then e-commerce, UPS, and FedEx make everything readily available. In many metro areas, consumers can order from Amazon and other retailers and get same-day deliveries. The marketing - and therefore the art world - is literally at our fingertips. Consumers are comfortable buying luxury items such as diamonds from Costco.com and pricey fine art from Saatchiart.com or dozens of other online galleries. You can market your art online, too. In fact, it's not just that you can, but that you should learn how to sell art online. It is your future. It is now. Chapters Include: Straight Advice: How to Market Art Online Marketing Art Online Understanding The Value of a Customer Persona Websites for Artists E-Commerce Domain Names Email Marketing for Artists Marketing Automation Blogging Social Media In this book, author Barney Davey, taps his 30 years of experience helping artists get their work to market. He uses a mix of brand new material along with freshly revised content from his books, blog posts and online training. He's combined the best of the best from every source available to him and created a valuable resource for artists. With five books and 600+ posts on art marketing, Davey has a treasure trove of advice for artists to pull from and create something new and beneficial for them. Telling Is Selling Those marketing tools mentioned above are ready for you to start using them. The internet is an equalizer. The systems and programs are the same as top artists use in their art businesses. They are available at low or no cost. It comes down to using them with proficiency and consistency. Essentially, they are forms of digital marketing and electronic communication. Your job as an artist is to connect with your best prospective buyers and then inform, enlighten and entertain them with your story. Stories sell art. You have a unique and compelling story to tell. It may be a few layers down right now, but it's there. Just like making art is a progressive task, meaning you get better at it over time and practice, so is telling your story. As you consistently use your website, blog, email marketing and social media with a purpose in mind, your ability to communicate with and tell your story to your followers improves.
