The Practical Handbook for the Emerging Artist

by

The Practical Handbook for the Emerging Artist Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Primarily designed to help visual art students make the transition from art school to their own practice, this book is also an excellent resource for practicing artists. This new edition continues to focus on all aspects of the emerging artist's career-studio practice, including developing ties in the art world, documenting work, exhibiting art, writing about art, taking on curatorial responsibilities, addressing financial and legal concerns, and attending graduate school. The text demonstrates how students can make things happen for their careers, in addition to helping them find and approach already-existing outlets for their work.

Book News Annotation:

In this update of the 1996 edition, Lazzari (fine arts, U. of Southern California) advises artists to build alliances rather than go it alone in promoting one's work and pursuing educational options. Includes artist interviews, photos related to documenting and showing artwork, resources, and an annotated bibliography.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Includes bibliographical references (p. 321-326) and index.
