This comprehensive resource shows artists how to make a living from their art—without relying on galleries. Through interviews with a range of successful artists, readers will learn how to write about their own work, how to arrange and curate exhibits, how to work in nonprofit arts spaces, how to determine when and if to advertised artwork for sale, and how to exhibit in non-art spaces. Artists will also find useful information for marketing their work, including photographing and framing, selling at art fairs, getting into juried shows, and selling over the Internet. Selling Art Without Galleries empowers artists everywhere to take control over their careers and find a market for their art.
