“Under The Arches” Captures ‘Urban Artistry’

Posted by

At least that’s what one art gallery owner told me tonight at our swanky concert-painting-wine drinking and media affair. Turning the parking plaza of our 92-year-old building into a concert venue was another light bulb moment for our Mad Hatter CEO Jeff Hinson, and with the stylish guidance of Events Diva Elisabeth Jordan, it was a rousing success. (I say was — it is actually still going on outside my door.)  The star duo was painter Rolando Diaz and pianist Seth Simmons, who have developed a wonderful concept called Euforia, where Ro paints as Seth plays. It works. And the whole thing played even better in the open air with the cacophonous roar of Commerce and Jackson street traffic providing background ambiance. Art is a blessing that elevates, especially in the cool October Dallas night with the skyline shining as bright as the crescent moon.

    What an incredible night. It waaaaay exceeded my expectations. I’ve never seen anyone play the piano like Seth Simmons and the outdoor atmosphere with the cars whizzing by made it exciting and edgy. Kudos for a soiree I won’t soon forget!
