Flannery and Fashion at Mid-Century
April 24 – November 1, 2015
The exhibition, held in the back parlor of the main house, will feature photographs of Andalusia’s collection of textiles, including clothes made for Flannery O’Connor by her mother, Regina, a talented seamstress. We will explore O’Connor’s many descriptions of clothing in her writing, such as the grandmother’s attire in “A Good Man Is Hard to Find.” We will also look at changing modes for women at mid-century: what did it mean to wear “slacks”? Check out our Flannery and Fashion Facebook page for ongoing discussion!
A collaboration between Emily Gomez, Sarah Lenz, and Elizabeth Wylie, this exhibition is made possible by the generous support of the Flannery O’Connor Review, Georgia College.
