As a dancer, one of my biggest concerns of going into the dance world is how little dancers can make, and the uncertainty of an income. I am sure this is the concern of many artists as our careers falls into the category of lowest paying occupations, unless you know what you are doing. Caroll Michels knows what she is doing and is offering tons of advice on how to be successful and get paid. In this book she offers insight on how to launch your career and get people excited about your work. This is a great book for the fine artist that would love to know how to make a living and then some more.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0805088482, Paperback)

The classic handbook for launching and sustaining a career that "explodes the romantic notion of the starving artist," (The New York Times) with a brand-new chapter on Internet art marketing

Now in its sixth edition, How to Survive and Prosper as an Artist is the definitive guide to taking control of your career and making a good living in the art world. Drawing on nearly three decades of experience, Caroll Michels offers 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 artistic disciplines. She has also added a new section on digital printmaking and marketing in this emerging field.

Most notably, this sixth edition contains an entirely new chapter: "Art Marketing on the Internet." Michels offers criteria for selecting an ideal Web designer for your online portfolio and for organizing your Web presence, and shares proven methods for attracting curators, dealers, and private clients to your site. She also addresses vital legal concerns in the age of e-commerce, including copyrighting and registering your art, and finally, the appendix of resources, consistently updated online at Michels’s site the Artist Help Network (www.artisthelpnetwork.com), is fully revised.
