The work of Edward Brown will be on display in Crandall Gallery from September 27 to October 31.
"Lights and Shadows," charcoal by Edward Brown
Brown has been working on this series of drawings for the last five years. According to him, "The drawings are more mindscapes than landscapes. They are inspired by the works of Edgar Allan Poe and Franz Kafka as much as the late autumnal landscapes of suburban Washington, D.C."
Brown has shown his artwork extensively in the Baltimore/Washington region and won several awards for drawing including a Maryland State Art Council Grant. He studied painting at Syracuse University, Camberwell School of Arts and Crafts in London, and earned a master's degree from the Cranbrook Academy of Art. He is a resident of Maryland and currently teaches painting and drawing on the Eastern Shore of Maryland at Salisbury University.
The upcoming exhibit is his first in the Ohio area. An artist's reception will be held Saturday, September 27 from 4 - 6 p.m. in Crandall Gallery and the public is welcome to attend. Crandall Art Gallery is located within Cope Music Hall, on the corner of Simpson Street and Union Avenue. The Gallery is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. - 9 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday from 1 - 6 p.m. The Gallery is free and open to the public.
