“A readable, realistic, and practical field guide to professional success in the visual arts…A wealth of reproduced art and profiles of artists complete this inspiring, useful, and, given the rise in do-it-yourself careers, timely resource.”

Joanne Mattera, ArtBlog: Marketing Mondays, 6/15/09
“This book explains the art world and offers clear and useful steps to setting goals and achieving them--information that until recently most artists never learned in art school…This is one well-timed and well-written book.”
