Art in the Hermetic Tradition – some photos

June 29th, 2012 § 0 comments § permalink

It’s taken me a few a weeks to get these pictures posted, but here are some shots from the Art in the Hermetic Tradition show presented by the Hermit’s Lamp.

It was a really fun opening night with good people, excellent art, magical discussions, and strawberries. We couldn’t have asked for more.

And of course Ivan Minsloff’s and my Hermit made his debut. He was well received and felt right at home in a shop dedicated to his light.

Opening night is long gone now, but the show is still hanging until July 28th.

If you’re in Toronto, get on over to 398 Vaughn Road to see it. And you can stock up on all your magic supplies while you’re there.

You might even want to get a limited edition print of the Hermit for yourself.

Contemporary Magic: A Tarot Deck Art Project

CONTEMPORARY MAGIC: A TAROT DECK ART PROJECT

Contemporary Magic: A Tarot Deck Art Project

If you’re in New York City in November, be sure to get to The National Arts Club to see Contemporary Magic: A Tarot Deck Art Project.

Stacy Engman has curated a gorgeous art Tarot deck featuring original artwork from a diverse mix of the world’s top creative icons. The exhibition includes 78 original works, each representing a different Tarot card and each by a different artist.

The artists were matched with a particular card based on archetypal themes referenced in their work. They then used their own iconography to interpret their card. The results are spectacular.

Where can I get a deck?
