Art of Tarot – 2

January 19th, 2012 § 0 comments § permalink

Toronto Tarot Lovers and Artists – it’s a call for submissions!

After the success of their first show, Andrew McGregor and the Hermit’s Lamp are doing it again with a second installment of the Art of Tarot.

Right now, they’re looking for original art about or inspired by the Tarot. Let your imagination run wild and send something in.

You can see some of the work from last year’s show at the Hermit’s Lamp website. It’s pretty great.

But this year it might be even better. I’m really looking forward to it.

The show itself will open on Saturday, March 10th. Submissions must be in by Tuesday, January 31st.

I wonder what I could submit.

The Art of Tarot – an tarot art show in toronto

The Art of Tarot at The Hermit's Lamp

The Art of Tarot

A Tarot art show in my very own city and I didn’t even know it! That is, until someone mysteriously left a postcard for the event in my front door.

It’s The Art of Tarot featuring twelve artists sharing Tarot inspired pieces at The Hermit’s Lamp, a new magic shop and event center in Toronto.

The Hermit’s Lamp is run by Andrew McGregor, who I posted about earlier this year.

Through their Toronto Tarot Portal, he and James Wells do regular podcasts on a wide variety of tarot related topics. And they’re very good.

The Art of Tarot is looking towards the future of Tarot, though it’s clearly inspired by traditions of the past. The pieces are fabulous, I’d love to see them in a deck.

Most are paintings or drawings, but there’s also a sculpture, a stained glass window, and even a quilt. I’ve got to get over there and see them myself.

The show runs through the end of November, but the gallery is only open Wednesday through Saturday. Get there if you can.

And to whoever left the postcard in my front door, thank you!
