Columbia University is mounting a new Edward Gorey exhibition entitled Gorey Preserved. Drawing from the extensive archive donated in 2010 by Andrew Alpern, the exhibition will open in the University's Rare Book and Manuscript Library on March 5th and runs through July 27th. An opening reception will be held on Wednesday March 7th at 6m in the Butler Library. The opening will feature a panel discussion including Mr. Alpern, Andreas Brown and Karen Wilkin.
The Butler Library is located in New York City at 535 West 114th Street. For more information on the exhibition, go to - http://library.columbia.edu/news/libraries/2012/021012_gorey_exhibit.html
This is the second major exhibition of Edward Gorey material to be mounted by a university in as many years. Following last year's extensive Looking For Edward Gorey at the University of Hawaii Art Gallery, Gorey Preserved should be more accessible to fans of Mr. Gorey's works. With the Edward Gorey House opening its 2012 season on April 15th, and the Elegant Enigmas show touching down from June 8th through September 2 at the Norton Museum in Palm Beach, Florida, it looks like the East Coast is the place to go to this spring/summer to get your Gorey fix.
