Non-Fiction Gallery is pleased to invite you to:
Southern Discomfort 2016
Art Inspired by Flannery O'Connor

The Flannery O'Connor Childhood Home and Art Rise Savannah are pleased to present "Southern Discomfort 2016: Art Inspired by Flannery O'Connor" on Friday, April 1 from 6-9 p.m. at Non-Fiction Gallery, located at 1522 Bull St. 
Part of Savannah's monthly Art March, this group exhibition will include a reception and silent auction, featuring original art by more than 20 local artists. The event is free and open to the public.
"Southern Discomfort" showcases art inspired by Savannah native and National Book Award winner Flannery O'Connor, one of the South's greatest authors. Proceeds from the show will benefit local artists as well as programming and outreach initiatives at the Flannery O'Connor Childhood Home, a literary treasure nestled in the heart of Savannah's Landmark National Historic District. This event will take place in conjunction with Art Rise Savannah's 50th Art March and the Better Block Savannah program.

More than 20 of Savannah's top artists will participate in "Southern Discomfort 2016" including Marcus Kenney, Katherine Sandoz, Christine Sajecki, Mary Hartman, Carmela Aliffi, Alexandro Santana, Mary Lawrence Kennickell and Panhandle Slim. A wide range of media will be on display, from oil paintings and hand-made drawings to experimental photography and mixed media work.

Each of the participating artists was given a copy of The Complete Stories of Flannery O'Connor to serve as a source of creative inspiration. There were no restrictions on the size, theme or materials of the work submitted, allowing the artists to offer original, unedited perspectives on Flannery O'Connor.
