Covering Flannery

A prosthetic leg, an arrow-pierced crow, and a burning cross are among the ink drawings that will be on display for a seven-month run at Andalusia Farm. “Covering Flannery: Book Design and Visual Narrative” will be on view from February 5 through September 3, 2017.

The exhibition features studies for new covers for O’Connor’s most well-known volumes of fiction. The work offers visitors a glimpse of the ways in which art work becomes marketable book covers through collaboration between artist and graphic designer along with the third collaborator…the stories.

“Covering Flannery” will be launched Sunday, February 5 with a public program featuring the award-winning collaborators: artist and illustrator June Glasson of Laramie, Wyoming and Charlotte Strick of New York City. The presentation also kicks off Andalusia’s Annual February Four in which one of O’Connor’s stories is examined from four different perspectives. The 2017 series will focus on O’Connor’s second novel “The Violent Bear It Away.”

The public is invited to attend the February Four presentations each Sunday in February from 3-5 p.m. at the farm. The presentations will last from 3-4 p.m., followed by receptions, 4-5 p.m. Space is limited to 25 on a first-come first-served basis. Ample parking is available. Podcasts can be accessed here.
