Dorrell opened his gallery in 1991 and has been advancing artists' careers on a national level ever since. This is an updated edition of his original book, covering critical subjects that he didn't before and expanding on others, written in the same honest tone. With clients such as Warner Brothers and H&R Block, Dorrell knows how to land the big deals, as well as how to win the trust of private collectors.


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.
