Sound Advice for Young Artists

The July/August issue of Art on Paper leads with an interesting cover story. A young, anonymous artist working on the publication’s staff wrote letters to several established artists seeking advice on building a career in the art world. The issue reproduces, exactly as submitted, the dozen letters the writer received in response. Some are hand written while others are typed. Some are coherent; others ramble and are painfully indirect.

Gregory Amenoff’s response, the most practical and probably the most sound in the lot, so impressed me that I wanted to share a short summary of his major points. His advice comes one main point per paragraph, and he makes my job easy by printing each of his major suggestions in red caps. For the remainder of Amenoff’s thoughts, and to see the other 11 responses, pick up a copy of the issue on the newsstand.
