  • Warholian and Modern Eden Gallery have come together in to present “Tarot: Art of Fortune” a modern day reinterpretation of the classic intuitive “fortune telling” card deck. The show features some of the best emerging names in the gallery scene today as curated by Warholian’s founder Michael Cuffe.

    Although it’s roots may seem occult, Tarot was originally developed as a pack of playing cards in 15th century Europe to play French Tarot or Italian Tarocchini. Over time, individuals in the intuitive and early psychic communities began to adopt the cards as use as a tool to “read” an individual and offer spiritual guidance. Today Tarot has become more widely accepted as a way for individuals to find direction in the bustle of a modern world. With the availability of decks ranging from artistic to commercial, tarot has become a personalized standard of home libraries everywhere.

    For “Tarot: Art of Fortune” we’ve asked some of the top contemporary artists to reimagine their favorite card from a standard deck, into a work of art based on the imagery and symbolism present. “Tarot: Art of Fortune” features an amazing array of established artists that have been individually selected as important figures in emerging art movements at this time.

  • Was born a twin in Indiana at least years 7 ago.

    Her twin’s name? Mab Graves.

    She paints like a chimney

    And smokes like a fish.

    Drinks coffee like its illegal.

    The name Mab? It’s not short for anything.

    She is or has a cat.

    They are sworn enemies.

    Mab is a Pop Surrealist painter.

    She says she is a Dreamchild Neverist.

    I don’t know what that means,

    Mab never went to Art School.

    She is pretend artist.

    The nicest thing a stranger ever said to her? “Oh, I’m sorry. I thought maybe you were a child. Or a vampire.”
