in memoriam Ed Essex
Ed Essex September 12th 1924 – March 17th 2013 ﷯The last of the leaves flicker by
A different color fills the sky,
The west wind freezes and numbs,
Autumn is gone and winter comes. And Winter Comes, 1989 Linoleum Block Print (Poem written by Ed for his grand daughter) Ed Essex was born in Galesburg, Illinois in 1924 and died in Seattle, Washington in 2013. He was a World War II veteran and received a BFA and MFA from University of Iowa. He worked many years as an artist, printmaker, and art educator. Ed Essex's prints convey the poetic allure of the Pacific Northwest's natural environment, and celebrate the influence of the Seattle area's culturally diverse population on his art and ideas. Ed Essex: A Sixty Year Print Retrospective was exhibited in 2010 at the Washington State Convention Center in Seattle. The exhibition was so well received that it then traveled to Harborview Medical Center and Shoreline City Hall (Please see catalog pdf for more information). Ed was a man who collected friends all of his life, and knew the value of a well developed sense of humor. He is profoundly missed. This site is dedicated to sharing Ed’s creative legacy. ﷯﷯
