How to Get Hung: A Practical Guide for Emerging Artists, Barnes, Molly
8 How to Get Hung: A Practical Guide for Emerging Artists Barnes, Molly
Like New. 
Paperback. Softcover 1994 Journey Editions. Superclean; no marks or creases; pages bright; binding tight. Only a hint of shelfwear. 146pp. Language: English. 'Gallery owner and art critic Barnes is refreshingly free of pretension and preciousness in this let's-get-real guide for students and artists hoping to sell their work. Much as she understands the spiritual and aesthetic forces that motivate artists, she sticks to practical matters. One of her first suggestions is that anyone planning on showing their work to gallery owners must have at least a dozen pieces related by theme, media, or scale. Gallery owners must be wooed, Barnes declares, and, as in any courtship, everything counts, from your appearance--remember this is a visual world: you'd better look good, no, make that interesting--to your ability to speak intelligently yet succinctly about your themes and approach to materials. Barnes offers plenty of sane and sensible guidelines for preparing for studio visits, evaluating agreements with galleries, selecting work for shows, and helping with installation and promotion. Her efficiency and feistiness make it all seem possible, which is what aspiring artists really want to hear.'--Donna Seaman, Booklist.
