Our group, PPASP, put together a nice notebook with biographies and statements for our current show at the Doll Gardner Gallery. The curator also asked us for a color sample sheet of our individual work. This is easy to do if you have Photoshop with the "Contact Sheet" feature.
I often get a lot of compliments for the business-y things I produce, but I am aware that I could do so much more! Business things for the artist is similar to what is called "housekeeping matters" for attorneys in courtrooms. You can bet that lawyers would rather spend their time on the more interesting aspects of the trial...instead of the more mundane tasks. No one WANTS to attend to the dull matters..but if you don't you are likely to lose the case! (I love analogies).
Do you hate the business aspect of your (art) job...or are you making peace with it?
