Getting the Word Out offers dozens of practical and effective ways for artists to get more attention - through the fine art of self-promotion. Chapters cover such vital topics as: brochures and catalogs; getting your artwork into magazines; speaking in public; creating videos; working with art consultants; publishing a book; print advertising; composing grant proposals and much more.
