Stand By Your Man: A Tribute to Bonnie and Clyde
Fashion by Tara Tonini • Paintings by Joey Seeman

Opening reception: Friday, Dec. 5th, 2008 7-9 p.m.
411 N. Tyler St. Dallas, TX

Art meets fashion at this unique collaborative show featuring handmade designs and art dedicated to the infamous Dallas based outlaws; Bonnie and Clyde.

Designer Tara Tonini will be debuting a one of a kind line of women’s and men’s hats and hair accessories inspired by Depression-era America. She recently received outstanding reviews from her runway looks featured in the Pin Show, Dallas’s independent runway show.

Joey Seeman takes his inspiration from the work of the W.P.A. muralists and particularly the American Regionalists who told the American story during the Depression. His most recent one-man show at Canvas Gallery in Dallas followed on the heels of two successful shows in Los Angeles.

Living in Dallas, the home base of many of Bonnie and Clyde’s endeavors, gave the pair the original inspiration for creating a tribute to the notorious outlaws who roamed the American countryside but always considered Dallas their home base.

This show is part of a three day alternative shopping event, Dallas Indie Experience which also includes Urban Street Bazaar in Bishop Arts district on Saturday Dec. 6th and Deck the Halls at the historic South Side on Lamar building on Sunday Dec. 7th. All three shows will spotlight independent Dallas business and artists.
