For the second year in a row, the Flannery O’Connor Childhood Home in Savannah Georgia hosted an art exhibit and auction to raise money for maintenance and operation. This year’s show, “Southern Discomfort 2” was held on January 31, and I was pleased to take part.
The crowd was enthusiastic, the Flannery-related art work was varied—even the food was “appropriate.”
I mounted one of the fans to sell as a piece of wall-hanging art.
That won’t mean much unless you’ve read Flannery O’Connor’s novel Wise Blood—but this was a crowd sure to “get it.”
The portrait above is by Panhandle Slim, who also designed the green T-shirt.
Next up in Savannah is the Flannery O’Connor parade and street party at the end of March. Several of us are going in costume, and I have started making puppet heads (more on this later).
In Savannah, they love a good parade.
