The family that creates art together, stays together. Or something like that. It's worked for the Voorhees family, starting with patriarch Edwin Voorhees, a coastal seascapes painter, and his wife Mildred, a painter of still lifes and landscapes. Their children and grandchildren inherited the artistic inclination. This year marks the 16th annual Voorhees Family Art Show and Sale, with the work of Susan Voorhees (oil and pastel), Jane Voorhees (watercolors, pastels, prints, cards, calendars and letterpress), David Voorhees (wood-fired stoneware and porcelain pottery), Molly Sharp Voorhees (sterling silver jewelry), Elizabeth Voorhees Becker (color photography), Amy Voorhees (oil paintings) as well as guest artists Chad Alice Hagen (felted art and handmade books) and Cheryl Stippich (stained glass). Held on Saturday, Nov. 23, 10 a.m.-5 p.m. at at 89 Woodward Ave. in north Asheville. Free. voorheesfamilyart.com. Painting: Lakeside Luminescence by Susan Voorhees
