Thanks for visiting The Practical Art World.

I have noticed throughout my involvement in the art scene that many self-taught or even professional artists lack practical information which would greatly benefit their careers. My goal for this website is to offer straightforward information for artists in the areas of gallery submissions, professional practices, writing, and resources.

I welcome your questions, feedback, and comments at thepracticalartworld@gmail.com

    Hi like your site. I also use Twenty Eleven as my theme. Am a indigenous artist in Australia.
    Lots of interesting stuff for a artist here. Shall make sure I have a look here every now and then.



  4. Thank you for this page. Very useful information. I have been trying to use my blog to promote watercolour classes in my area. Perhaps you could let me know how to add a link.

  5. Your site is a great model for me. I’m restructuring my blog to provide this type of comprehensive information but in regards the Southern California poetry scene. I’ll definitely be checking back soon! Thanks so much. -DM

    I was wondering if you could help me. I have an original framed print of Michael Jackson’s Ben by Emo. I just wanted to know the value.
    Hope you can help.
