The ‘Welcome Home Watusi Bash!’ (Vendor Call)




Please join us this Memorial Day in celebration of our local veterans, veteran artists, and the therapeutic art program created to support them. Through the compassionate efforts of For Love & Art, a Dallas-based charity focused on the healing effects of creation, we seek to provide relief for our struggling veterans in the Dallas/Ft.

For Love & Art is in the business of healing, rejuvenating and ‘dusting’ broken spirits – even if just for a little while – through simple human love, Art therapy, digital technology and the preternatural power of art.

Stereotropes: Thomas Menikos and Tony Veronese at Mokah

Stereotropes CardFront Final Version

Stereotropes Opening Reception

Mokah Gallery in Dallas, Texas

Stereotropes is a show that takes a lighthearted look into daily narratives influenced by current and nostalgic pop-culture.  Conversations take place in a visual language where voice becomes color as two voices build a new narrative from opinions and memories. On a most basic level the show looks at the relation of tropes, archetypes and clichés as parallels are drawn between subject matters as conversations flow through times of serious discussion, to joking and outright insult wars.  The images presented are created to be viewed with the use of 3D glasses so the viewer can decipher each voice separately along with seeing each image in all its collaborative and chaotic glory.

Reception runs from 6pm-9pm. Thomas Caleb Menikos and Michael Veronese will be giving an artist talk at 7:30pm.
