Raising funds for the Emergency Artist’s Support League
“Our fourth market will continue to raise awareness and funds for a worthy cause,” said Miller. “I’m thrilled that we will be raising money for the Emergency Artists’ Support League and their efforts. This is an incredible organization that provides emergency assistance to visual artists in the North Texas region and educational grants to emerging artists.”
The Emergency Artist’s Support League was founded in 1992 and serves artists residing in 10 North Texas counties. Grants are distributed for medical crisis, studio damage or other emergencies. Grant applications are reviewed and approved by the 100% volunteer board and administered through The Dallas Foundation.

Singer and Violinist Camilla Venturini will be providing entertainment during the Urban Artist Market VIP Reception. Camilla began her musical career at the early age of five by studying classical music with maestro Giorgio Mendini. In 1995, she merged both her voice and violin talents while entertaining tourists visiting the renowned Verona Lake Garda. Several years later, she competed on the “Fantastica Italiana” broadcast and finished second. More recently she completed a three-year musical tour in Japan and continues to spend her summers entertaining tourists visiting Northern Italy’s Lake Garda and Abano Terme in the province of Padua. Often accompanied by her violin, Camilla sings in English, French, German and Spanish. She performs for many weddings, parties, and ceremonies since residing in Texas and can often be seen at Dal Testardo restaurant in North Dallas.

“Camilla is the ideal entertainer for the Urban Artist Market,” said Producer Christopher Miller. “Her musical choices are light and lively, while showing tribute to an increasingly diverse world. Her talent opens a portal to joy and celebration.”
