Here’s a call for all Toronto (and beyond) Tarot artists!

The Hermit’s Lamp is now accepting submissions for their 3rd The Art of Tarot show.

I saw last year’s show and it was absolutely fabulous! This year, I just might like to submit something myself.

I better get on it soon though. The submission deadline is March 19th, and Opening Night will be Thursday, May 2nd.

Contact Andrew McGregor at The Hermit’s Lamp to learn more.

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!

Satya Paul's Tarot Bridal Line from The Art of Tarot Collection

Tarot Bridal Line by Satya Paul

I’m a little slow with the news, but I just came across an article talking about a Tarot inspired fashion line in India. It’s called The Art of Tarot Collection and its Bridal Tarot Line was unveiled in September.

Designer Satya Paul looked at the Suit of Wands, the Empress, Lovers and Chariot cards and saw saris, kurtas, dresses and lehengas.  I know nothing about Indian fashion, but I like the idea of gowns inspired by magic, especially Tarot magic.

Paul’s Empress piece is lavish and jewelled, his Chariot is elaborate and regal, and his Lovers is feminine and flirty.  Apparently the one defined by the Suit of Wands is elegant and refined. I wonder if sees that suit as air or fire.

I don’t know which dress is which card, but they’re all really beautiful. It gets me thinking though … what would a Tower gown look like, or a pair of Judgment shoes?
