The Press Release is as follows:
The Lowbrow Tarot Presented by La Luz de Jesus and Guest Curator Aunia Kahn
Opening Reception: October 1, 2010 (8-11 p.m.)
Culver City, CA October 16, 2009 – The Lowbrow Tarot Project will showcase 23 artists who will use their creative and unique styles to take on the tarot 22 Major Arcana and original card back totaling 23 new works of art in the rugged glow of the lowbrow art movement to be displayed in an exhibition at La Luz de Jesus on October 1, 2010.
The group exhibition will feature 23 new and original works by renowned and accomplished artists Carrie Ann Baade, Christopher Ulrich, Edith Lebeau, Cate Rangel, Kris Kuksi, Chris Mars, Christopher Umana, Chris Conn, Brian M. Viveros, Claudia Drake, Heather Watts, Molly Crabapple, David Stoupakis, Laurie Lipton, Patrick “Star 27” Deignan, Chet Zar, Jessica Joslin, Danni Shinya Luo, Jennybird Alcantara, Angie Mason, Scott G. Brooks, Aunia Kahn and Daniel Martin Diaz.
Curator and artist Aunia Kahn developed the project after the completion of her own 78 card Silver Era Tarot deck and believed most artists would enjoy the exploration of divination without the commitment to a larger, overwhelming project. In addition, a hardcover tabletop book and full color tarot card deck of the work will be produced.
La Luz de Jesus is located at 4633 Hollywood Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90232, and will host the show starting October 1, 2010 with a free opening reception with the artists and public from 8pm – 11pm and will run until November 1, 2010; all works for sale will be transacted through the gallery.
