“I wanted to let you know that I got a gallery show in San Anselmo as a result of last year’s edition! Thank you for producing such a high quality product to showcase our work.” Kristen Jensen, painter

“We receive American Art Collector, and consider it a great resource. We have exhibited some of the artists that have appeared in your book. Do you need me to send postage?” Dan Addington, Addington Gallery

“You do a great job, and the presentation is just right. I’m going to buy more books next time—whenever I give one to a collector they have a great reaction.” Anna Good, painter

“The book looks great. I am totally impressed and thankful that I was included in this volume. I’ve gotten some great gallery shows as a result of this amazing book!” Katie Caprara, painter

“People I have shown the book to are impressed. I have heard the comment ‘awesome’ a lot. Everyone who has seen the book loves it, and I even had to give autographs like a celeb. I totally ran out of books and have people asking me where to buy them. You should be proud of this wonderful artistic endeavor.” Jennifer Kirton, drawing

“I just wanted to tell you how happy I am with the book. My copies came a few days ago and I immediately wished I had ordered more. All of the artwork looks great to me and I am honored to be included. I am forwarding copies to three galleries I have been negotiating with and also to several collectors of my work.” Bonnie Carter, painter

“I received a very strong response from American Art Collector. My name is better known in the art world since I began participating.” David Mark, painter

“The response to my artwork that was juried into your book this year was wonderful and I want to thank you. An art consultant in Beverly Hills and galleries in Michigan and Texas now represent me. I’m also working with galleries in Chicago, Santa Fe, and possibly New Orleans for more representation! This is all allowiing me to paint full time and I am loving it…American Art Collector has been very important for my career. I sold thirty paintings last year and my prices have increased!”
Judy Campbell, painter

“I had a wonderful success with the book and cards. I just had a one-woman show at the Royal Palms resort in Phoenix, the most elegant in the area. The box arrived just in time.  The painting in the book is now in the AZ House of Representatives for a year celebrating Arizona’s Centennial. I set up a display of a framed photo of the painting, the letter from the Arizona Commission on the Arts about my selection, the book and the postcards! Wonderful! I look forward to next year! Barbara Lacy, painter

“Thank you for including an image of mine on the cover. My rep got my copies out promptly to my most ambitious collectors and I made my first sale two days ago. Many thanks … I believe that I have now made seven sales related to the books in which you have included my photography. They have proven to be an exceptionally fine vehicle to generate sales and enhance my reputation, even in a down economic time. FYI – I have received offers for two solo shows based on my presence in your books.” Brian Vikander, photographer

“Thanks in part to my work being in your beautiful book, the Denver Art Museum is auctioning a commission by me to raise funds. They sold copies of the book at the auction…twenty books went flying off the table at “DAM Uncorked” and my commission auctioned for $5000 to the museum, so it was a great success!…And, your books got me into some beautiful galleries in Mexico. They took 11 paintings for Punta de Mita, Vallarta and Mexico City and have been selling already!  In general, Mexico really supports original art and NOBODY hangs prints on their walls.” Lisa Ambler, painter

“You are doing good work, Tom, providing a service to the industry. Photography has many sides, one of them being as a workhorse. Those in the fine art sector who look down on commercial work simply don’t know their history. The photographers I admire most, Edward Steichen, W. Eugene Smith, James Fee, Christian Boltanski, worked commercially in order to realize their fine art—along with countless others in editorial or stock work. I’ve known few worthy photographers outside this model.” Carol McCusker, Ph.D., Curator, Museum of Photographic Arts
