  • 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.

  • Melissa Morgan studied Computer Graphics and Graphic Design at New York Institute of Technology in Old Westbury, Long Island, NY. Working within the NYC design field for several years, she quickly became frustrated with the lack of creative freedom, long hours and high demand.

    As fate would have it - she landed an opportunity as Gallery Director in Soho, NYC. Feeling as though she belonged on the other side of the spectrum she set out to find a place where she could nurture her creative spirit that has driven her entire life.

    Subsequently, this landed her in Madrid, New Mexico where she currently resides and actively pursuing art.
