ELEGANT ENIGMAS: The Art of Edward Gorey

T


he Loyola University Museum of Art presents two exhibitions, Elegant Enigmas: the Art of Edward Gorey and G is for Gorey—C is for Chicago: The Collection of


Thomas Michalak. Both provide an in-depth look at influen- tial Chicago artist Edward Gorey, whose work was known for cautionary tales, dry wit, and characters costumed in the Edwardian style. Gorey is well-known for the opening animated credits of the PBS television series Mystery! (now Masterpiece Mystery). His influence on other artists, illustra- tors, and subcultures is significant as well. Film director, producer, and artist Tim Burton, and writer Daniel Handler, most famously known as Lemony Snicket, have all been influenced by Gorey’s unique style and dark humor. Gorey’s legacy is shown through the hundreds of original

drawings, works, and illustrations, and references to popu- lar culture included in the two exhibitions. G is for Gorey, a companion exhibition from the Thomas Michalak collec- tion, will focus on Gorey as a person and his extensive work designing books, creating illustrations for book jackets, illustrations for magazine articles, illustrations for chil- dren’s books, and his life and work on Cape Cod.
