Lowbrow Tarot Art show

on October 1, 2010 | 1 Comment

Artist Aunia Kahn held an online open call to artists everywhere last year for the Lowbrow Taro Art Show. Only 23 artist would be selected to represent the 22 cards in a Major Arcana tarot deck (plus the card back). The exhibit starts tonight, October 1st and closes on Halloween. If you’re in the L.A. area, the show opens at the La Luz de Jesus gallery and I highly recommend checking it out. The gallery and store itself is a must see. Luckily for those of us who can’t attend, here are is a link to the online gallery. There are some truly fantastic selections by Chet Zar (The Devil), Chris Mars (The Hierophant), Kris Kuksi (The Emperor), Laurie Lipton (Death), Christopher Ulrich (The Magician) and many others. The artists creations will also appear in a forthcoming hard cover coffee table book and of course the project wouldn’t be complete until an actual tarot deck, also in production.
