The Legacy is the art, the story and the hopes for the future told through the art of Agnes and the determination of her daughters that her legacy lives on.
Starting with Henrietta Lockwood Smalls right after the Civil War, through five generations of exceptional women, a story of perserverance and hope is told.
The innocence and complexities of the times are reflected in the exuberant work of Agnes and her portrayal of the era between the two World Wars.
These watercolors allow a peek into the mid-20th century through the eyes of a young African-American girl, thrust from rural SC to NYC.
