The Fated Year: A Tarot Themed Exhibition from Jabari Weathers (hosted by Tectonic Space)
March 3 @ 7:00 PM - March 31 @ 10:00 PM
‘One hundred and sixty-five handmade illustrations.
One hundred and sixty-four cards.
Eighty-four visions from Bluebeard’s twisted abode.
Eighty myriad tales from the Théan coasts.
Twelve months exploring these fictions, with eight months of labor spent.
Four years of effort,
rendered in three mediums,
across two fortuitous decks of cards.
From July of 2016 to the same month of the following year, Jabari Weathers created the work
that they are sharing with you here.
Such is the outcome of The Fated Year…’
Tectonic Space is proud to announce the opening of “The Fated Year” by Jabari Weathers on Saturday, March 3 from 7pm to 10pm.
The Fated Year features one hundred and sixty-four original gouache and pen illustrations. Produced over the last year for Magpie Games’ Bluebeard’s Bride, a new tabletop RPG game, and John Wick Presents’ 7th Sea’s Sort Sorte deck, the works are a beautifully rendered mix of horror and myth. The show will be on view at Tectonic Space from March 3- March 31, 2018.
Jabari Weathers is a Baltimore based illustrator who plumbs the depths of the surreal and fantastic for their visual stories. Their time spent at MICA led them to a love of the traditional mediums of gouache, watercolor and ink for their art and illustration practice. Most of their professional contributions are illustrations for pen and paper roleplaying games, a medium that they hope is seen as an artful and powerful means of sharing stories.
