Edward Gorey

Illustration Professor James Edwards is proud to announce that he has produced a digital video installation - entitled, Gorey Collected, Pictures from Edward Gorey's Cabinet of Curiosities - for a major exhibition on Edward Gorey at the Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art in Hartford CT. James's piece can be seen at the Gorey's Worlds exhibition from February 10 through May 6, 2018. James has also been invited to speak at the museum on May 5th at 2:00 p.m., delivering a lecture entitled Elephant Ballet, The Swan Song of Edward Gorey. Both the exhibition and the talk focus on 'personal collection' and 'influence' - the sources that formulate motive, style and content in an artist's body of work. James also served as a consultant for the larger exhibition.
