“Elephant House or, the Home of Edward Gorey: Photographs by Kevin McDermott/Books by Edward Gorey,” runs Tuesday, August 4, through Sunday, November 8, at the Wimberly Library on Florida Atlantic University’s Boca Raton campus. This photography exhibition by Kevin McDermott of Gorey's Cape Cod home brings one into the bizarre world of the enigmatic artist who relished his privacy and generally preferred the company of his cats to that of his two-legged acquaintances. The exhibition, sponsored by the Arthur and Mata Jaffe Center for Book Arts, also features some of Gorey’s books and documents. The exhibition can be viewed during library hours, which can be found at www.library.fau.edu/geninfo/hours.htm?boca or by calling 561- 297-3770. Contact John Cutrone, programs coordinator, at 561-297- 0455 or jcutrone@fau.edu to arrange a group tour of the exhibition. For more information, visit www.jaffecollection.org.
