About this book
How to Survive and Prosper as an Artist is the preeminent guide to taking control of your career and making a good living in the art world. Drawing on over two decades of experience, Caroll Michels walks artists through the complicated process of balancing grants, gallery representation, private dealer sales, and a personal studio to ensure a public profile and a steady income. Included is a wealth of insider's information on getting into a gallery, being your own PR agent, and negotiating prices, as well as innovative marketing, exhibition, and sales opportunities for various art disciplines.

The new edition is fully updated with strategies for using the Internet and computer technology for marketing and networking, and includes an expanded appendix with more than one thousand resources in more than forty areas, including online galleries, insurance and legal services for artists, internships, art colonies, corporate and public-art programs, and overcoming creative challenges.

The classic handbook for launching and sustaining a career that "explodes the romantic notion of the starving artist," (The New York Times)
