More than 200 young art enthusiasts showed up for the first Urban Scene, which went down at a prime piece of Rogers Healy real estate. Essentially it was a house tour and an opportunity to buy a new painting or two.

Architect Frank Posada’s one-of-a-kind custom home at 5206 Miller Ave. was flush with art from local talent, including Lab Art, Peter Lynch, Snipe Art, Bee Street Studio, Andrea Holmes, Toni Martin, Payne Wingate and Jason Stallings. This free pop-up gallery was a great way for guests — including Vodi Cook, Laura Reeder, Diego Netto, Toni Martin and Robert Garza — to check out a new piece in Posado’s architectural portfolio. Plus they got a first taste of Braindead Brewing.

Urban Scene founder Landon Burke’s goal was to create an event that promotes and celebrates the arts. As a Realtor and art lover, Burke has seen how supporting the arts enriches Dallas culture and benefits everyone in the community. If nothing else, he hopes these events show Dallasites the vast amount of talent in our arts community.

All indicators point to its being a success: Burke has successfully partnered with the DMA Junior Associates for the second event, which is set for January 27 at 5424 Willis Ave. Attendees get tickets to the DMA Junior Associates Curators’ Choice event on January 30.

Urban Scene plans to partner with a different nonprofit for each monthly event, with 10 percent of art sales going directly to the organization.
