VIP Reception benefitting the Genesis Women’s Shelter & Support
6 pm – 9 pm
The Urban Artist Market kicks off with a VIP Reception on Friday night. Stroll the show floor while enjoying complimentary drinks. Plus enjoy complimentary appetizers and live music. The opening reception benefits the Genesis Women’s Shelter & Support.
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.”

About the Genesis Women’s Shelter & Support
Genesis Women’s Shelter & Support has been selected as the fundraising beneficiary for our October 11-12 Urban Artist Market.
The mission of Genesis Women’s Shelter & Support is to provide safety, shelter, and support for women and children who have experienced domestic violence, and to raise awareness regarding its cause, prevalence, and impact.
In January 1985, Genesis Women’s Shelter began operating as a haven for abused women and their children under the umbrella of Shelter Ministries of Dallas. Genesis was established through the cooperative efforts of the First Presbyterian Church of Dallas and the Episcopal Diocese of Dallas. In the last 34 years, Genesis has provided shelter, safety, and strength to 37,000 women and children. Today our Outreach counselors see over 3,000 women and children a year and provide over 26,000 counseling hours. Genesis addressed the need for transitional housing in 1998 with a 12-month program called Annie’s House, located behind the Shelter.
