My friend Alanna clued me into this on Facebook. Apparently, there’s a group of artists here in Portland, Oregon who got together in August, drew a bunch of cards and will be re-imagining them for a showing in November. I think I may have to go to this. Anyone else want to join me?
The detailed information below is from their Facebook page:
The Tarot deck dates back to the 15th century and has been used since then as a map of mental and spiritual pathways. The meanings of the cards in the Tarot deck can vary from person to person, but the basic symbolism and elements remain the same.
Over 100 artists are creating their artistic representation of their selected card based on their own interpretation of its meaning and symbolism.
Join with us as we celebrate the rich and vast array of local talent and view unique and perhaps quirky, absurd or campy interpretations of the Tarot deck art. Artwork will be on display throughout the months of November and December.
Opening Reception Party including tarot readers, hoop-dancers, music, etc.
