Hosted by the Furman University Department of Art, the exhibition features the work of Tom Flowers, Mark Flowers, Kristy Higby, Carson Higby-Flowers, Morgan Higby-Flowers, Virginia Griswold and Tia Flowers.
In “Lineage,” the artists honor the creative spirit that has grown through three generations and inspired six visual artists, all connected through family ties. Tom Flowers taught art at Furman University from 1959-1989. This exhibition showcases his work alongside works by his son, daughter, daughter-in-law, grandsons and granddaughter-in-law.
Their works include acrylic painting, sculpture, mixed media narrative paintings, street photography, small metals wearable art, electronic integrated art, glass sculpture and more.
