Century Memorial

The rural landscapes of Clark Greenwood Voorhees are well known to lovers of American art. His paintings had been exhibited at the Carnegie Institute of Pittsburgh, the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, the Art Institute of Chicago, and at the St. Louis Exposition of 1904. By choice he lived in country-places within easy reach of the native scenery which he loved to paint, and the art colonies of Stockbridge and Old Lyme grew up under his kindly guidance.
