Product description

Art-Write:The Writing Guide for Visual Artists has a single intention: To teach artists how to write about their own artwork. This concise and current career resource is filled with achievable advice on how to write for art promotion and sales. The book offers a step-by-step approach to create a professional artist statement, with thinking and writing exercises to ease the process and develop authentic and clear content. 
Opportunities in the art world often begin with the artist's own writing; for exhibitions, funding, press releases and email inquiry letters. Art-Write offers comprehensive direction to artists who want to enhance their visual work with effective language. Author Vicki Krohn Amorose combines the sensibility of an artist with the practicality of a copywriter, offering an understanding of her readers along with generous wit and encouragement.

Editor opinion

Review

"I will be recommending this book to all the artists I coach. It takes the fear out of writing a statement by breaking the task down into doable and even fun steps."
- Gigi Rosenberg, author of The Artist's Guide to Grant Writing
"This charming book will help to jump-start those who need more words and more tools to get their statement going."
- Brainard Carey, author of Making It in the Art World
"Art-Write is a terrific resource for artists. The writing prompts and "Word Coffee" are worth the price of the book alone." - Alyson B. Stanfield, author of I'd Rather Be in the Studio!


" Solid advice in a no bullshit form.Vicki Krohn Amorose covers all of the major types of written artist/public, artist/media, artist/gallery-collector-critic communications now required of both beginning and mid-career artists. This is a book that I now have added to required reading for all of my students in the Fine Arts Department at Pratt Institute. This is a book to read and keep in any artist's library for future reference." -Professor Jos. A Smith, Pratt Institute

I meet a lot of artists. I manage the website for a gallery. One of my responsibilities is putting artist information on the website. (www.aavart.com). The information I request is basic biography and artist statement. In 98% of the cases, artists are not sure what to write. On a going forward basis, I will be recommending this book.@@@@yzabela Dior
