Avanti Restaurant is thrilled to announce the launch of its “Art Al Fresco” year-round series to premiere on Monday, April 2, 2018. The Avanti “Art Al Fresco” series is about providing a springboard to emerging artists while connecting with and celebrating the artistic soul and unique heartbeat of Dallas’ Uptown neighborhood.
Avanti’s “Art Al Fresco” initiative will give exposure to Dallas’ up-and-coming artists by providing them a high traffic venue to showcase their work. As of April 2018, the white walls of the Avanti Restaurant patio will become the exhibition space to a selection of artists, allowing them to make their creative debuts in the Dallas Uptown vibrant scene.
Every two months a new artist will be featured. We want to give artists, who are beginning their artistic journey and feel ready and empowered at the prospect of sharing their inspiration and vision of the world, a chance to exhibit.
Andrea Lamarsaude will kick off “Art Al Fresco” as Avanti’s first guest artist. Born and raised in Dallas, Andrea is a primarily self-taught artist (abstract art, mixed media, mono-printing, acrylic pours and collage). Her hope is that her work “visually tells captivating stories, inspires conversations and pleasant dreams, and brings positive, creative energy into the world.” Andrea’s studio is in Uptown.
Call to Action: Artists are invited to send their artistic statement, short bio and photos of their art to Avanti at [email protected] by July 5, 2018. The Avanti “Art Al Fresco” series features paintings and photography. Avanti’s internal committee will review applications and follow-up with artists.
Come and enjoy the art at Avanti!
