Heap House by Edward Carey
Extraordinary Illustrated Fiction of Edward Carey

October 23, 2018 – January 6, 2019
Austin Central Library Gallery

Edward Carey is a writer and visual artist, born in England, now teaching creative writing at the University of Texas at Austin. Carey has worked as a playwright, and his visual art has been exhibited in solo shows in London, Kilkenny, Florence, Milan, and most recently, at the Parco di Pinocchio in Italy. He is the author of seven works of fiction. For each book, he creates works of art that help him craft his stories, but also become integral to the finished novels. This exhibition, for the first time, brings together Carey’s work on all seven of his books.
