Are you a Long Island artist?

Talent doesn't guarantee professional success in the arts.

Whether your intended career is in dance or theatre, writing or painting, you need an entrepreneurial mindset, good contacts and competence in basic business skills: selling, negotiating, writing contracts. No one is better qualified to teach their skills than Long Island's top visual and performing artists.

The above copy is from a program going on this Saturday at the Southampton Cultural Center. It's called The Art of Doing Business in the Arts, and it covers a spectrum of fine and performing arts, including writing ... which is where Saralee Rosenberg and I come in. We'll be speaking at 11 am. But the program itself goes from 8 am - 2 pm.

Hope to see you there!
