Publisher's Summary

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 audiobook 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 listeners along with generous wit and encouragement.

A great book to all that one's interested in arts

Art-Write: The Writing Guide for Visual Artists by Vicki Krohn Amorose is amazing in various senses. The book reveals the great difficulty to write about art that the artists have. Amorose was a student with Rudolf Arnheim, the great theoric in art, and your writing reveals to us what are the principal's aspects of perception in the images and compositions in paintings, drawings and other contemporary art media. Indeed, this book can do more than this too: with your precise instructions and exercises, Art Write teaches to us, artists, how we can communicate with our public.
