As well as reading about art itself, artists are open to ideas from many sources. They may study science journals or TV shows about nature, books of poetry, classic novels, and foreign cinema, or pop culture and philosophy. They add this knowledge to what they know about technique and their creative skills in order to make their work. Part of being an artist is having an audience to view and, hopefully, buy the art. Traditionally, this means finding an agent or dealer who helps to organize exhibitions of your artwork in galleries.
