Living the Artist’s Life: lecture and book-signing kick off ART Connects

Living the Artist’s Life

From the foreward of Living the Artist’s Life: A Guide to Growing, Preserving, and Succeeding in the Art World, Updated & Revised: “Only about 15% of all artists make a living from their work… whether you’re an unrecognized master still struggling to make your career click, a recognized master intent on maintaining your success, or are just starting out, I wrote the book for you.”  According to ArtStreet, Miami Public Television, “Dorrell’s passion is to help artists thrive in what is often an unsupportive art world.  This is a very important book that scores of artists can learn from.”

Paul Dorrell
