But—I’m an artist; I don’t do paperwork! Try again. You are setting yourself up for hours of frustration scouring through piles of ‘crap’ trying to find one piece of paper, only to find that it’s been crumpled and torn. Filling out grant applications, answering calls for submissions, keeping track of where your art is at, and the rest of the unglamorous side of building your art practice could be accomplished with streamlined precision—if only you had a little organization. This lecture / workshop will take the pain out of getting everything from your CV, press clippings, sales charts, consignment forms, drafts, and more into one place so you can get on with making your art.
