Why Now: Like many cities across the country, Orlando is experiencing a renaissance of its urban core’s districts and neighborhoods. Mills 50, just northeast of downtown, is the “intersection of creativity and culture,” anchored by the city’s Vietnamese community (one of the largest in Florida) and complemented by artists, specialty shops and so much more.

Where to Go: Start the day with a stop at The District @ Mills 50 for a terrific introduction to the neighborhood. This community co-op highlights 36 local makers and their crafts, from soaps and candles to jewelry and kombucha, and serves coffee and tea. Afterward, lace up your running shoes at Track Shack, which has been keeping Orlando runners geared up and ready to hit the streets for nearly 40 years. Art is seemingly everywhere in Mills 50, from wall murals to artistic expressions on canvases in the forms of utility boxes and even trash dumpsters. Curated photography and art exhibits can be found at Snap! Space in the restored historic Cameo Theatre, and botanical beauty awaits in the 50-acre outdoor oasis found on the district’s edge at Leu Gardens. When it’s time to eat, there are plenty of options in this highly sought-after neighborhood, from BBQ at Pig Floyd’s Urban Barbakoa to Mexican at Black Rooster Taqueria (don’t miss the from-scratch tortillas); vegetarians can enjoy organic, local and fair-trade dishes at Dandelion Communitea Cafe.

Chris Carr Fine Art Photography on display at The District At Mills 50

Posted on Updated on

Chris Carr Photography now on display at The District @ Mills 50 at 1221 N. Mills Ave., Orlando, FL 32803 with artwork prints for sale in all sizes. The District is OPEN DAILY Monday thru Saturday 10 to 9 and Sunday 10 to 6.

Join @SOSArtGallery at The District At Mills 50 to celebrate Chris Carr’s art installation at The District and inclusion in the March Artborne Magazine.

THE ARTIST’S BIO

Chris Carr was born in North Carolina, but has lived in Orlando, FL for more than 20 years. He’s always felt a drive to create, and has done so via many outlets and mediums, but it was photography that captured and held his attention.

The search for unique perspectives that reveal something new in our environment drives Chris’ investigation of the world, his artistic eye, and his Puddle Reflections fine art photography series.

THE ARTIST’S STATEMENT

Puddle Reflections show new, surreal landscapes captured from reflections in puddles existing in the environment. The naturally occurring subjects are not altered, and the images are never edited or digitally manipulated. Each image strives inits own way to evoke an idea of two worlds colliding in one small, fleeting view.

In depicting the world from a new perspective, my hope is that the audience experiences the artworks as a new genre of photography that challenges their perception and minds. This occurs with a brief journey, from the viewer’s initial impression of surrealism or abstraction to the realization that the image comes from something they encounter all the time, right below their own feet, but rarely—if ever—take the time to notice. As an intriguing inherent contradiction, this realization comes as continuing exploration of each tiny detail gradually reveals the truth of the bigger picture.

PROACTIVE VS REACTIVE: Legal Protection for YOUR Peace of Mind

Posted on Updated on

Frankly speaking, so many of you who GET CONNECTED via BizOrlando.com are business owners who learn by trial and error the day-to-day workings of running a business either full-time or as a supplemental income on the side.

When I stop and think about how long I’ve been an entrepreneur, the length of time is nearing two decades.

And one thing that I learned once I started KNM Creative Services in 2005 is that you will have plenty of opportunities to form partnerships in the community — even nationally or globally — to continue growing your business plan towards goals.

On the other hand with these partnerships comes contracts and protecting yourself, your business and your personal interests.

Through experience, one of the best steps I made towards educating myself as a business owner was becoming a licensed LegalShield Associate by the State of Florida in 2011.

Since then, I have continued my focus on @SOSArtGallery while having the peace of mind by being both a LegalShield Associate and a LegalShield Member. By doing so, I now always have a trusted resource to help guide me in the right direction.

Here’s the facts: Through my own testimony and usage of the personal plan, what is stated in the membership plan information is 100% what I have paid as a member.

As an artist, there are intellectual property concerns, contract negotiations and day-to-day questions that one may have in approaching the artistic journey as an entrepreneurial venture.

Through the basic personal plan, I pay the monthly membership and in return, have 24/7 access to a network of A-rated lawyers based in the heart of Orlando, Florida — as covered by residents in the State of Florida. Each state in the United States has their own provider law firm(s) which service the residents in that state for offered plans.

The result you ask? Having the plan is all about whether you take advantage of the benefits and use the plan when you have questions.

So I have made the most of getting expert advice by lawyers when I have either personal or business question. Sometimes you just need to run a question by someone qualified to answer it.

And by paying a flat rate of a monthly membership, I don’t have to count the minutes on the clock worried about the cost of doing so.

At this time, I invite you to read more about the memberships offered and opportunities presented.

Maybe you have a current situation, either personally or professionally, that you know you need to tackle but think that you have to spend hundreds of dollars to get the answers.

I may just have the solution: WWW.SOSPROACTIVE.COM
