Gorey Goes East

Edward Gorey had a deep affection for Asian culture and references to Japan and the Orient are often found in his books. For the first time, a major exhibition of his work is touring Japan with stops in three cities. Elegant Enigmas, the seminal traveling exhibition of Mr. Gorey's original art from the archives is being exhibited this year in three cities - Itami City Museum of Art (April 2 - May 15), Fukushima Prefectoral Museum of Art (July 16 - Aug 28, and finally Shimonoseki City Art Museum (Sept 8 - Oct 23). The traveling exhibition is being supplemented by first edition books from the collection of Toshinobu Hamanaka.
