Contents Big picture -- Groundwork -- Submission materials -- Websites and business cards -- Opening your studio -- Residencies and grants -- Where to show your work -- Rejection: it's not you, it's them -- Getting your work to the show -- Consignments -- Loans and commissions -- The gallery courtship -- Gallery representation -- Representation agreements.
Summary 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. Bhandari and Melber walk you through these issues so that you can essentially act as your own manager and agent. They show you: 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.
