USC Upstate Shares The Other Brother
Mark, Tom and I had an opportunity to share The Other Brother Exhibition and Documentary with the USC Upstate and Spartanburg, SC communities. The students were curious, attentive and receptive to the artwork on display. The support for visual art is clearly alive and well at USC Upstate! Thank you to Jane Nodine for creating the opportunity to share this story with the Upstate community, and Mark Flowers for lending his talents to design work, exhibition installation and PR to get the word out. The screening led to a fertile Q&A session. One comment coming to us later was, “My wife and I kept talking about it the whole night”.
We welcome the opportunity to bring The Other Brother Exhibition and Documentary to your community. Please contact us.
“The Other Brother: The Art of Jesse and Tom Flowers is an extraordinary exhibition that will linger in the minds of those people lucky enough to experience it. Both the film and exhibition work together to give the viewer a fascinating look into the lives of Tom and Jesse Flowers, whose artwork forms a significant and tender connection between the two estranged brothers. Kristy Higby and Mark Flowers of Mountain Tea Studios in Asheville, North Carolina, have organized what promises to be a beautiful and intriguing exhibition of carefully selected works of art by the Flowers brothers as seen in the film. Off the screen and on the walls, exhibition visitors will have the unique opportunity to see and study these works in person, which is undoubtedly the best way to get a true sense of the art and all of its subtle nuances. Perhaps new observations will be made and shared, inciting an ongoing dialogue about artistic expression and sibling relationships.” -Liz Miller, Curator, Franklin G. Burroughs-Simeon B.
