A renowned gallery owner, art consultant and career coach for artists, Paul will discuss his book, Living the Artist's Life: Updated & Revised, and conduct an abbreviated version of his career workshop, accompanied by a handout.
Some of the topics covered:


-  The current recession, how Paul’s gallery survived it, and what he learned from it.


-  How political and corporate greed helped create the recession, & how that affects artists.


-  How to structure a successful career, regardless of one’s goals.


-  How to cope with the emotional challenges that result from years of working in obscurity.


-  How to approach galleries, write contracts, work with private collectors and corporations.


-  How to successfully utilize the Internet, the Social Network, and related issues.


-  Getting one’s work in major collections, whether museums or others.


There will be ample time for artists to ask questions. A book-signing follows the presentation.
