Packed in a Trunk: The Lost Art of Edith Lake Wilkinson

December 20, 2012 - January 19, 2013

Packed in a Trunk

“In 1925, an artist named Edith Lake Wilkinson was committed to an asylum at age 57. All her possessions were packed up and sent to her sole surviving relative. Edith was never heard from again, and her trunks remained in an attic. Forty years later, they were opened and her remarkable work was revealed!”

The tale of Wilkinson’s art and life was discovered by Emmy-winning writer and playwright Jane Anderson, a descendant of Wilkinson. Gallery hours: Monday – Friday, 6 p.m. – 10 p.m. Saturdays, 9 a.m.-5 p.m.

Packed in a Trunk Reception: Tuesday, Jan. 8, 7 p.m. For more information, visit www.edithlakewilkinson.com.
