How Art Thou Café in Charleston, SC, Features Works by Lillian Trettin

How Art Thou Café, located in the Terrace Plaza on James Island in Charleston, SC, will present the exhibit, Flannery O’Connor’s South: New Work, featuring cut-paper collages by Lillian Trettin which interpret this Southern novelist’s eccentric characters and sharp commentary, on view from Mar. 8 - 31, 2012. Singer-songwriters Hazel Ketchum and Bob Culver, “The Harrows,” will perform music related to the exhibit on Mar. 8 from 7-9pm. Joshua Miller, owner-artisan, and co-owner David Berger will also host a wine tasting event that night. Additional art by Sophie Nemethy, Rich Schmiedt, Hunter Gilbert and Joshua Miller will be on view.

Lillian Trettin’s exhibit of cut-paper collages entitled Flannery O’Connor’s South: New Work, interprets Southern novelist Flannery O’Connor’s dark humor, eccentric characters, and sharp social and moral commentary.

Trettin, a resident of Mount Pleasant, SC, previously exhibited collages related to Flannery O’Connor’s fiction in Charleston in August 2011. One observer called the work “wild, wacky and thought provoking.” Another wrote: “You have captured the essence of Flannery - both of you jolt my senses and raise my discomfort level.” The exhibit will also show Apr. 9 - 14, 2012, at Converse College in Spartanburg during a conference on southern culture, “From Okra to Opera.” The conference, featuring live music and art exhibits as well as scholarly research, is open to the public.
