The Edward Gorey Documentary Project (on its way to PBS) →

A feature length documentary about the late illustrator Edward Gorey shot with his encouragement from 1996 to his death in April, 2000.

Christopher Seufert received unprecedented access to the artist Edward Gorey, who has been called “one of America’s foremost eccentric geniuses,” shooting with Edward from 1996 to his death on April 15, 2000, capturing his life and daily routines.

The documentary has received a letter of support from WGBH for a PBS broadcast and is currently being edited for submission to the Sundance Film Festival in September, 2014.

“We have a new homepage image. This cut paper illustration of Edward Gorey is the work of Chicago artist Kenneth Gerleve, who is creating an installation in conjunction with the Gorey exhibitions at the Loyola University Museum of Art (LUMA). Inspired by Gorey’s sensibilities and dark humor, Gerleve’s Summerland: A Ghost Story will appear in the space adjacent to the gallery containing Gorey’s work. Gerleve is a graduate of Columbia College Chicago’s Interdisciplinary Book and Paper Arts MFA program.” http://www.goreyesque.com
Both an homage and showcase of contemporary artists and storytellers inspired by Edward Gorey’s lasting influence across genres, Goreyesque seeks works that are darkly humorous, surreal, playful, and anything in between. Short stories, essays, poems, illustrations, video/animation and other forms of art all welcome. Original work preferred but reprints that fit the project’s scope also appreciated (see submission guidelines). Work can be sent to: goreysubmissions@gmail.com.
 The launch of Goreyesque coincides with the Chicago debut of Elegant Enigmas: The Art of Edward Gorey and G is for Gorey—C is for Chicago: The Collection of Thomas Michalak, at the Loyola University Museum of Art (LUMA), Feb. 15 - Jun. 15. While Elegant Enigmas has traveled the country since 2009, the companion exhibition G is for Gorey provides an even closer in-depth look at Gorey’s legacy, including his illustrations for book jackets and magazine articles, and his life and work on Cape Cod.
