A thoughtful guide for art students, written by a veteran artist and teacher with the hope that it will help aspiring artists avoid some pitfalls. Dunning (fine arts, Central Washington U.) discusses teaching and learning art, dealing with critics, compiling portfolios, establishing Web pages, setting up a studio, keeping records and taxes (contributed by Ben Mahmoud), finding jobs, understanding politics in the art world, photographing work, and getting gallery shows. Contains many anecdotes about contemporary and famous artists that Dunning uses to illustrate his points. No index. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
