GREENVILLE, S.C.—Art and crafts fashioned by 30 members of Furman University’s Osher Lifelong Learning Institute will be on display in Thompson Gallery of the Roe Art Building now through July 27. Thompson Gallery is open Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The exhibition is free and open to the public, and is OLLI’s first time to display work by its senior members. A wide range of art and crafts will be featured in the show including pen and ink drawings, paintings, sculpture, quilts, wood carvings and other forms.

Founded in 1993, OLLI at Furman is an organization that inspires senior learners to stay intellectually and physically active through its many course offerings. Each term, more than 800 senior adults in the Greenville community have the opportunity to make new friends and pursue educational interests on the Furman campus. The program offers approximately 85 courses and 20 bonus trips per term.
