Avanti “Arts Al Fresco,” in Support of Emerging Artists
The Avanti “Arts Al Fresco” year-round series provides a springboard to emerging local artists and celebrates the artistic soul and heartbeat of Dallas’ Uptown neighborhood. The “Arts Al Fresco” initiative gives exposure to Dallas’ up-and-coming artists by providing them with a high traffic venue to showcase their work. Since April 2018, the white walls of our patio have become the exhibition space to a select group of local artists, allowing them to make their creative debuts in the vibrant Dallas Uptown scene. Every two months a new artist is featured, giving artists who are beginning their creative journey a chance to exhibit and the opportunity to share their inspiration and vision of the world.

Second Guest Artist: Luis Alonso Barcenas
Luis Alonso Barcenas is Avanti’s “Arts Al Fresco” series second guest artist (July – August 2018). Born in Mexico-City, Luis is a primarily self-taught artist. Luis Alonso started to paint and express his passion for colors in Dallas in 1999. “When I paint I forget about everything; I only focus on colors. Mixing my colors puts me on a cloud. I find my inspiration inside of me. The painter in my head is working all the time. I put my emotions in my art; they translate through my colors and the strokes of my brush.”
