New Works By Jennifer Dranttel
March 30th – May 31st, Opening Reception April 4th 6PM-10PM
BELLINGHAM, WA, March 11, 2014 –Honey Salon is proud to present ‘Major Arcana’, a new collection of double-size silkscreened prints by Jennifer Dranttel that explores and re-interprets the first 22 cards of the Tarot. Dranttel’s prints reinvent the traditional tarot with Pacific Northwest symbols and imagery. ‘Major Arcana’, the Nomad mobile pop-up shop, drinks, delights and PhDJ will accompany the artist reception April 4th from 6PM-10PM.
The 22 Major Arcana cards represent a journey through life from birth to enlightenment. These first cards in the standard 78 card deck indicate life’s significant issues, from ‘The Fool’ and ‘Death’ to ‘The Lovers’ and ‘Strength.’ Drawn both to the mystical and highly symbolic nature of the traditional tarot illustrations, Jennifer sought to update them with modern imagery and connotations to make them more accessible and easier to use for today’s divinatory readings.
A nomadic soul by nature, Dranttel has shown her work at galleries and storefronts across the country for the last twelve years. In 2008 she and her husband made the official move to the subdued city of Bellingham from San Francisco. Her degrees in architecture and graphic design influence her clean lines and minimalist style. In 2013 Dranttel and her husband launched Nomad, a mobile pop-up shop housed in a restored 1959 Mercury travel trailer. Nomad sells a well-curated collection of handmade goods from artisans all over the country, as well as an ever-expanding line of their own original products. One of their best-selling items is custom fragrance oil blends inspired by four cities (New Orleans, Savannah, Nevada City & Reykjavik). They are excited to announce the premier of the ‘Bellingham’ fragrance at her April 4th opening reception at Honey Salon.
