MAry Dumas March

The Chelmsford Art Society is inviting Writers and Artists to hear Mary Dumas, a successful graphic artist, explain the complex world of independent publishing. This meeting is open to the public so come to the CCA on March 30 at 7 PM.

Mary’s small shop in Western Avenue Studios is in Lowell, Massachusetts, it is called Pop Culture Place.  However, under the name Studio Book Works, she consult with self-publishing authors about getting their works into the world.  Covers of books are a growing market, and artists need to know how to navigate in that world.  What their Intellectual Property means, and how to retain their ownership of a painting, while still selling it to someone for their living room display.

Do you want to learn the Art of Self-Publishing? Would you like to see your artwork in books? Mary’s presentation to the artists would be a conversation about the following:

1) Selling their art online and in person with the right contracts,
2) Why get a professional photographer to take a good digital picture of their art,
3) How to rent an art piece for a book cover.
