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.
