Discussion and Book Signing with Noted Art Consultant and Gallery Owner Paul Dorrell
The Art League of Long Island is hosting a discussion and book signing of Paul Dorrell’s book Living the Artist’s Life:

Updated & Revised in the League’s Jeanie Tengelsen Gallery on Friday, November 16 at 7:00pm.  The event is open to the public and there is no fee to attend.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR and Book: Dorrell opened Leopold Gallery in 1991, and has been advancing artists’ careers on a national level ever since.  With clients such as Warner Brothers, the Mayo Clinic and H&R Block, Dorrell knows how to land the big deals, yet also how to win the trust of private collectors. He presents the information so that any artist can learn how to more easily structure a career that works. With sage advice and humorous anecdotes, Dorrell keeps you engaged through each chapter. Whether instructing on how to get your work into a gallery, or how to handle self-doubt, he knows his ground. He also tells the story of his gallery's initial failures and eventual successes. Regardless of your place in the arts, you will benefit from this work.

Praise for Living the Artist's Life: Update & Revised:
