DISTILLATION: Magical Tools for Your Alchemical Journey
Join us for an afternoon of mystical exploration with Primrose Apothecary’s Felicia Howe and Coleman Stevenson of The Dark Exact. In this workshop, we will examine correspondences between the Fool’s Journey of the Tarot and the Alchemical Process, as participants locate their own current placement along these metaphorical paths. In this interactive class, participants will work with tarot, sigil craft, and plant essences, discovering ways these different magical tools can be used together to set personal intentions and harness powerful energies to support their process. The materials fee includes a copy of the Vitriolic Tarot and a set of corresponding oil blends.

Metaphysik Book Signing w/ Daniel Martin Diaz
Join artist Daniel Martin Diaz and author Coleman Stevenson for a talk about their recent collaboration METAPHYSIK. The Metaphysik deck by Diaz is a tool for problem solving that helps users engage more deeply with their intuitive and imaginative selves. The cards can be used in a variety of ways, individually or pieced together like a puzzle, to explore different modes of thinking and overcome creative blocks. Metaphysik’s evocative imagery is an invitation to a strange new world where experiences of the mystical in the midst of everyday life inspire users to defy expectations, free themselves to make unexpected connections, and uncover a more expansive view of reality. The deck is accompanied by a book of essays by poet Coleman Stevenson, musings on the concepts of connection and creativity. Readers are invited to think about the ways they access information, form ideas, and communicate those ideas to others. The essays are followed by a set of corresponding exercises, ways of interacting with the Metaphysik cards to explore their compositions. Diaz’s illustrations that inspired these essays and exercises are interspersed throughout the pages of the book, offering readers additional opportunities to connect with a world of mystery and imagination.

Still & Unstill: Objects and Landscapes as Human Metaphors
This Delve takes place at the Portland Art Museum and coincides with the exhibition Volcano!, which marks the 40th anniversary of the eruption of Mount Saint Helens. This Delve will explore museum galleries, pages of books, and the realm of memory, discovering commonalities in ways writers and visual artists recreate human experience through their hyper-realistic descriptions of material objects and natural places. Through a multi-sensory examination of objects, images, and texts, we will become fluent in this symbolic language of concrete detail. We will also look at various ways text and image interact, including how illustration functions as form of creative adaptation of a text, influencing our initial processing of its content, and how personal narratives can reframe familiar works of art.
