Are you an artist who is at the stage where you ask yourself, "Now that I have my body of work together, what do I do next?"?
In this presentation, Mark Pinsukanjana discusses how to price your work, editioning (if applicable), what to include in the artist statement, approaching art galleries and museums (artist submission package), and selling and talking about your work.
