Dear Young Artist,

Wandering around the bookstores, I found a great option for a gift for my talented 18 yr old cousin Pablo. Not that he needs one, but I immediately thought of him -- and then many other people I know.

Stuart Horodner's LETTER TO A YOUNG ARTIST contains 23 diversely established artists that have responded to a letter seeking advice about art and life in New York.

I really liked Joseph's Grigely's advice:
"Learn a foreign language, learn things about other people, go places and do things that have nothing to do with art - because it's the stuff that has nothing to do with art that has everything to do with art."
