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.
