The pages of THOM are emboldened by the creative community, both near and far, that trusts our writers, editors and photographers to capture their stories.

The amazing thinkers portrayed on our pages have journeys that far exceed THOM’s character limit, though. To truly breathe life into these tales, Thomasville Center for the Art’s beloved, bi-annual publication is reimagining our approach.

Starting with our new event series, THOM to Life.

After a dozen print runs, THOM still has plenty to say. We hope you’ll join us to celebrate this edition of THOM, knowing that a new one is always on the horizon.

It’s been a long, groovy road since the inception of Thomasville’s favorite springtime music festival, Due South.

Now in its eighth season, Due South is once again serving up a lineup that’s truly delicious – with just enough spice to keep you coming back for more. From the new Bourbon & Bagels culinary experience to the reimagined Sponsor-Party-turned-Due-South-ShinDig, celebrating the sights, sounds and tastes of the South is second nature to us at Thomasville Center for the Arts.

Of course, nothing comes more naturally for the Center than inspiring our youth to live artfully – a passion the proceeds from this sensational festival help fuel.

In partnership with our friends at Thomasville National Bank, and in concert with many other trusted partners, we invite you to become a sponsor of Due South and add a dash of your own personality to this already flavorful festival. If not for the music, the food, or the fun — than perhaps for the future of our community.

See y’all there.


Rhythm & Roots Grows to New Heights

Rhythm & Roots Grows to New Heights

Mark your calendar. You’re going to want to remember this date.

On April 11th, Due South’s 2019 Rhythm & Roots singer-songwriter event is scheduled to put a little more soul in the South with the help of Southern rock royalty Randall Bramblett.

“Having someone with the musical pedigree of Randall Bramblett for Rhythm and Roots is a major win for us,” said David Flowers, owner of Flowers Auto Group and co-chair of Due South Art Food and Music Festival. “Randall is an outstanding lyricist and songwriter.  In addition, the stories he will be able to share from his legendary career will surely make for a powerful evening of entertainment.”

Bramblett is known for collaborating with rock legends like Bonnie Raitt, The Allman Brothers Band, Steve Winwood, The Band, Chuck Leavell, Widespread Panic and many others.


Bramblett recently penned the title track for the Blind Boys of Alabama’s new Grammy Award winning album, adding to a long catalog of songs covered by music’s favorite chart-topping artists.

Rhythm & Roots is a series of intimate concerts held throughout the year aimed at spotlighting various songwriters and the stories behind their craft.  Hosted by the Thomasville Center for the Arts in conjunction with the Flowers Auto Group, the events help raise awareness and funding to support the future of art in our community.  With his impressive career and Georgia roots, Bramblett is a natural fit for this spring’s Rhythm & Roots event.

Rhythm & Roots is an intimate, BYOB evening, presented in partnership with Flowers Auto Group and Georgia Tourism. Guests are encouraged to come with a hunger for music.
