Artist & Designer Smarts
What does it take to succeed as a foreign
artist in New York? More than just talent! At a minimum,
- An effective resume, cover letter and thank you
- The ability to present & discuss your artwork.
- Good interview skills.
Artists also need:
- Strong bios, artist statements, and artwork descriptions.
- A good list of galleries & grants.
NY Smarts has Counsellors with expertise in many creative
fields (including painting, art history, art criticism,
fashion, graphic design, sculpture and film.). We will
work with you to develop and articulate your ideas in
order to produce effective documents and to prepare
you to present yourself well.
For artists, we will also work with you to identify
galleries and grants best-suited to your work, and we
will post a presentation of your artwork on our SMARTS
