Review:

Booklist, 6/1/09
“A readable, realistic, and practical field guide to professional success in the visual arts...A wealth of reproduced art and profiles of artists complete this inspiring, useful, and, given the rise in do-it-yourself careers, timely resource.”

Joanne Mattera, ArtBlog: Marketing Mondays, 6/15/09
“This book explains the art world and offers clear and useful steps to setting goals and achieving them--information that until recently most artists never learned in art school...This is one well-timed and well-written book.”

NEWSgrist.com, 6/18/09
“It is an experiential guide brimming with field-tested techniques that readers can apply to their own practice. With equal parts of practicality, warmth, good humor, and insight, Battenfield demystifies the path artists travel towards a flourishing career.”
