Art/work : everything you need to know (and do) as you pursue your art career / by Bhandari, Heather Darcy.; Melber, Jonathan,author.;
The big picture -- Groundwork -- Submission materials -- Promotion -- Opening your studio -- Sustaining your practice (with money and stuff) -- Showing your work -- Rejection : it's not you, it's them -- Getting your work to the show -- Consignments -- Loans and commissions -- The commercial gallery courtship -- Gallery representation -- Representation agreements -- And you're off.The most comprehensive guide of its kind, Art/Work gives artists of every level the tools they need to make it in an art world so competitive one dealer likens it to "The Sopranos, except nobody gets killed." Whether you're an art school grad looking for a gallery, a mid-career artist managing a busy studio, or someone just thinking about becoming a professional artist, this indispensable resource will help you build your career and protect yourself along the way. 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. Heather Darcy Bhandari, a gallery director, and Jonathan Melber, an arts lawyer, walk you through these issues so that you can essentially act as your own manager and agent. They show you, for example, 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.--Google Books.

Impressionism / by Grimme, Karin H.; Wolf, Norbert,1949-editor.; Scuffil, Michael,translator.;
Pictures created from light and colour -- Frédéric Bazille -- Marie Bracquemond -- Gustave Caillebotte -- Mary Cassatt -- Edgar Degas -- Vincent van Gogh -- Armand Guillaumin -- Wassily Kandinsky -- Max Liebermann -- Claude Monet -- Berthe Morisot -- Giuseppe de Nittis -- Camille Pissarro -- Pierre-Auguste Renoir -- Medardo Rosso -- John Singer Sargent -- Giovanni Battista Segantini -- Georges Seurat -- Walter Richard Sickert -- Paul Signac -- Alfred Sisley -- Max Slevogt -- Fritz von Uhde -- Federico Zandomeneghi."Discover how scenes of daily life and delicate dabs of color shocked the art world establishment. In this introduction to Impressionism, we explore the artists, subjects, and techniques that first brought the easel out of the studio and shifted artistic attention from history, religion, or portraiture to the evanescent ebb and flow of modern life. As we tour the theaters, bars, and parks of Paris and beyond, we take in the movement's radical innovations in style and subject, from the principle of plein air painting to the rapid, broken brushwork that allowed the Impressionists to emphasize spontaneity, movement, and the changing qualities of light. We take a close look at their unusual new perspectives and their fresh palette of pure, unblended colors, including many vivid shades that brought a whole new level of chromatic intensity to the canvas. Along the way, we recognized Impressionism's established greats, such as Edgar Degas, Claude Monet, Berthe Morisot, and Camille Pissarro, as well as many associated artists worthy of closer attention, including Marie Bracquemond, Medardo Rosso, and Fritz von Udhe." --

Customizing the body : the art and culture of tattooing / by Sanders, Clinton.; Vail, D. Angus.;
Includes bibliographical references (pages 221-237) and index.Preface to the revised and expanded edition -- Preface to the first edition -- 1: Introduction: Body alteration, artistic production, and the social world of tattooing -- 2: Becoming and being a tattooed person -- 3: Tattooist: tattooing as a career and an occupation -- 4: Tattoo relationship: risk and social control in the studio -- 5: Conclusion: Tattooing and the social definition of art -- Epilogue 2008: Body modification then and now / Clinton R Sanders with D Angus Vail -- Methodological appendix -- Selected tattoo artist websites -- Notes -- References -- Index -- Photographs follow page 108.Product Description: Originally published in 1989, this ground-breaking ethnographic exploration of tattooing - and the art world surrounding it - covers the history, anthropology, and sociology of body modification practices; the occupational experience of the tattooist; the process and social consequences of becoming a tattooed person; and the prospects of "serious" tattooing becoming an accepted art form. Curiously, despite the greater prevalence of tattoos and body modification in today's society, there is still a stigma of deviance associated with people who get or ink tattoos. Retaining the core of the original book, this revised and expanded edition offers a new preface by the author and a new chapter focusing on the changes that have occurred in the tattoo world. A section on the new scholarly literature that has emerged, as well as the new modes of body modification that have come into vogue, are included along with a new gallery of photographs that show some splendid examples of contemporary tattoo art. A directory of artists' websites invites readers to discover the range of work being done around the world from "suits" (full body tattoos) to skulls.
