Craig Downs artist, sign painter, muralist



Craig Downs and Panther Creative Productions are
pleased to present our October show entitled The Edgar
Allan Poe Show.  

164 years ago Edgar Allan Poe died under circumstances
as mysterious as the tales he penned; today he is
remembered as an innovator in the history of literature.  
One of the first American writers to attempt to make a
living solely from his writing, he is credited with
inventing the detective story, giving the short story
credence in the literary world, and even with boosting
the growth of the science fiction genre.  In his own
lifetime he was known almost solely as a literary critic.   
Today he is most commonly remembered for his
macabre short stories of mystery and suspense,
although he was also a poet, and a lyricist.  

We are looking for pieces inspired by Edgar Allan Poe,
his life, his works, his legacy, and you are invited and
encouraged to submit your artwork for this unique
showing opportunity.
