Happening In 2008
2008 promises to be a fantastic year. We have had plans for a good while to bring successful members of our community together to share ways in which they have been successful that can also help us learn. That's how we all grow stronger, by sharing and supporting each other. This is what we believe and, we want to practice what we preach.
This email is has been sent only to a select few key members of our community in an initiative by Miami Art Exchange to spread the gospel of art. You are receiving this email because you are one of those key people.
You were contacted during our December 2007 art events in regards to your expertise or knowledge in a specific area in order to make a short informal presentation to our group, South Florida Artist Entrepreneurs. This group is now developing in Miami-Dade County after having been functioning in Broward County since August, 2007.
