The Doing Business As… Artist Entrepreneurs Exhibition was founded in 2009. A collaboration between myself, Virginia Fifield and LeeAnna Yater. We took it upon ourselves to produce a professional high quality art exhibition in a public gallery; the three of us designed the concept and curated the first exhibition, complete with a catalogue to document the artists and their work.
Our mission was to launch the careers of it’s participating artists by mentoring and providing practical artistic experience and exposure for their artwork. The positive outcome of the first DBA exhibition persuaded us to continue this yearly event and promote our brand Doing Business As… Artist Entrepreneurs.
March was a very busy month, with two solo exhibitions, the Pembroke Pines Art Festival and the opening reception of Doing Business As… Artist Entrepreneurs 2014 Exhibit “Emergent ”

Mills said an idea came up to work with the nonprofit Artists with Autism and have the snowboards painted and sold in a fundraising event. Read More
