I am touched by Edward Gorey's works daily. Mr. Gorey's artwork decorates my home and is present in virtually every room, inspiring me to strive for perfection with a sense of quirky humor in all that I do. I am supremely grateful to him for sharing his unique perspective and vision with all of us.

The Edward Gorey house is all dressed up and ready to welcome visitors to view the 2020 exhibition He Wrote It All Down Zealously...Unfortunately, the doors remain locked until further notice.
Edward Gorey was a man who compulsively made lists. Lists helped him organize his thoughts and visualize the relationships of words. Many of his books, including all of his alphabets, are basically illustrated lists. Gorey's lists fill countless notebooks and reams of papers, and since he was a man who rarely discarded anything, this fabulous detritus provides insight into the work behind his deceptively simple texts.
One way to experience the 2020 Gorey House exhibition is to visit the website and read curator Gregory Hischak's in depth essay on Gorey's obsession with making lists - edwardgoreyhouse.org/blogs/news/edward-goreys-interesting-lists
Another important way to help The House survive this challenging time is to purchase a membership or renew your membership. Membership information can be found here - goreystore.com/pages/edward-gorey-house-membership
