“Not simply a how-to book, Selling Art without Galleries is a hands-on guidebook to daily life in the complex and sometimes murky world of the art market.” —Sculpture Magazine The days in which artists must get their work into galleries in order to gain success and recognition are long over. With that in mind, Daniel Grant gives readers advice on the multitude of options artists now have for marketing their work as well as how to sell work in a host of nontraditional venues, such as online, through open studio events, and in hospitals, restaurants, and art fairs. In this updated and revised edition, Grant provides new chapters on such topics as:
  • Publicity and social media
  • Public art loan programs
  • Meeting prospective buyers at museums
  • “Handmade” and “Made in America”
  • Artists’ estates and private foundations
  • The benefits of donating artwork
  • In addition, Grant includes tips on disaster preparedness, workspaces, housing and residencies, emergency funds, and legal assistance. For any artist looking to explore success outside of a gallery, Selling Art without Galleries is a comprehensive and invaluable guide.
