The 16th Voorhees Family Art Show and Sale will be Held in Asheville, NC - Nov. 23 & 24, 2013

The 16th Voorhees Family Art Show and Sale will be held in Asheville, NC, on Saturday, Nov. 23, from 10am to 5pm and Sunday, Nov. 24, 2013 from noon to 5pm at a recently renovated historic Arts and Crafts style home located at 89 Woodward Avenue in the Norwood Park area of North Asheville. This weekend show and sale is free and open to the public.

This year’s annual event will feature new work created by six Voorhees family members along with two guest artists. Hosted in cousin Marien Bradsher’s circa 1916 house with its majestic American Elm, the event will again be featured in a family home in Norwood Park. Meet this extraordinary family of artists known throughout North Carolina and the Southeast. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to MANNA FoodBank and to Kiva, helping others locally and globally.

The arts legacy began with Edwin Voorhees, (1919-1999) known for his NC coastal watercolor seascapes; and Mildred Voorhees and now their children and grandchildren. Mildred, (1924-2007) was best known for her colorful, patterned watercolors and rich oil still lifes and landscapes. Reproductions of Edwin and Mildred’s artwork will be available.

Three of Edwin and Mildred’s six children plus one grandchild and two daughters-in-law will be showing their work at this event: Susan Voorhees, oil and pastel paintings; Jane Voorhees, watercolors, pastels, prints, cards and calendars, and letterpress artwork; David Voorhees, wood-fired stoneware and porcelain pottery; David’s wife, Molly Sharp Voorhees, sterling silver jewelry, some incorporating natural beach stones; David’s daughter Elizabeth Voorhees Becker, color photography; and Amy Voorhees, oil paintings. Also exhibiting are guest artists Chad Alice Hagen, felted art and handmade books and Cheryl Stippich, stained glass.
