For immediate release through Oct. 8.
FARMERS BRANCH/DALLAS • Defying the odds with more than 40 years in the field, Barron Storey has maintained a passion for illustration. He has found ways to adapt to changing trends with an appetite for progressive ideas, in a career marked by both mainstream recognition and something approaching cult status. Storey is bringing his passion for his work and for educating the next generation of artists to Brookhaven College’s Visual Communication Program for an exhibition at the Atrium Gallery in Building B, Oct. 3-28 and a two-day workshop Oct. 7 and 8.
Storey will attend an opening reception for the exhibit Oct. 6 from 4 to 6 p.m. The exhibit will include a wide variety of Storey’s works. The two-day workshop is Oct. 7 and 8, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day. The workshop costs $50 for the public and only $30 for college students. Registration is available through the Brookhaven College Corporate and Continuing Education Division by calling 972-860-4715. The reception and show are free and open to the public.
Born in Dallas, Storey studied at the Art Center College, originally located in Los Angeles. His works cover the full range of illustration from Time magazine covers to comic books, with work for clients ranging from National Geographic to the United States Information Agency. His credits include work for Ziff Davis Media, Time, Boy’s Life, The New York Times, Saturday Review, the Franklin Library, American Heritage and a host of other prominent publications. Storey’s works are displayed in the National Portrait Gallery, American Museum of Natural History and the National Air and Space Museum of the Smithsonian Institution.
Winner of the Society of Illustrators’ Gold Medal, Storey has taught at many of the most prestigious graphic arts institutions in the country including Pratt Institute and Syracuse University in New York, the Academy of Art University in San Francisco, Art Center College of Design in Pasadena and at Pixar Animation Studios. The Society of Illustrators recognized him as a Distinguished Educator in the Arts in 2001.
