"Unsettled: The Work of Edward Gorey"

Tuesdays-Sundays, 11 a.m.-5 p.m. and Sun., March 12, 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Continues through March 12
phone 248-645-3323
artmuseum@cranbrook.edu

Edward Gorey’s masterful pen-and-ink drawings that illustrate his captivating books conjure a vaguely Edwardian world of handcars, boater hats, and Dickensian children. With titles such as The Hapless Child, The Loathsome Couple, and The Fatal Lozenge, Gorey’s protagonists often meet an untimely demise. Despite the subject matter, his work transcends the mere macabre, offering instead a dark humor that has found contemporary resonance with cultural phenomena from Goth and steampunk to Lemony Snicket and Tim Burton. Although Gorey’s métier was the illustrated novel, his talent and reach extended to other creative realms. Museum Admission: ArtMembers (Join Now!) FREE, Children 12 & Under FREE, General $10, Seniors (65 and over) $8, Students with ID $6.

This compelling exhibit, created between 1985 and 1991, powerfully shows children who faced serious challenges, including famine and war. These drawings and paintings were done from life as Lin Baum traveled to several countries including Nicaragua, Northern Ireland and Israel/Palestine. As Baum says, “I hoped by now to look back and know all is well, and my series is outdated. I cannot say that. The faces change, the landscapes change, but the effects of poverty, dehumanization and war continue.” In addition to drawings from the original series, the Upstairs Gallery features new drawings of children who represent Detroit Hope.

The Aesthetic Movement in America: Artists of the Photo-Secession

Through March 5

Pictorialism was the first truly international photography movement, and its practitioners, among them Alfred Stieglitz, Edward Steichen and Gertrude Käsebier, sought to position photography as a legitimate aesthetic art form. They favored soft-focus images that drew upon the conventions of important artists and movements of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Their poetic compositions drawn from contemporary life, combined with the use of expensive and labor-intensive printing materials such as platinum and gum bichromate, established these photographs as complex and nuanced works of high artistic quality. The exhibition features works by Stieglitz, Steichen, Käsebier, Clarence White & Paul Strand.

Europe on Paper: The Ernst Pulgram and Frances McSparran Collection

Through Jan. 29

Visually stunning, thought-provoking, and wide-ranging, Europe on Paper: The Ernst Pulgram and Frances McSparran Collection features forty-seven works on paper—drawings, prints, and watercolors from the eighteenth to the twentieth century—that focus on the expressive capacities of line and its ability to articulate the seen and unseen. Showcased are some important twentieth-century Austrian and German expressionist artists, including Gustav Klimt, Egon Schiele, Ernst Kirchner, and Oskar Kokoschka, who paved the way for future generations of the avant-garde, and the Italian Giovanni Battista Piranesi, one of the most inventive draftsmen and printmakers of the eighteenth century.

Throughout history, jade has had profound cultural implications in different regions of the world. In ancient Mesoamerican cultures, jade was highly prized and often connected to rulers and spirituality. A wide variety of items, including tools, figurines, and jewelry reflected the strong cosmological and symbolic associations the culture had with this luminous, hard stone.
