7/11: Art in the Veins at Beck Center



8c3f/1247068246-edmundsons.jpgArt has been a family business for the Edmondson clan for three generations, starting with George William Edmondson, who was born in 1837 and made photographs and paintings until his death in 1913. His sons were acclaimed portrait photographer George Mountain Edmondson (1866-1948), and portrait and landscape painter William John Edmondson (1868-1966). Longevity runs in the family, and the third generation is represented by George’s daughter, Ivy Jane Starr, who turned 100 years old in February and continues to work in watercolor and pastel. The Cleveland Artists Foundation traces the family legacy in Art In The Veins, which opens with a reception from 1-4 p.m. at Beck Center for the Arts (17801 Detroit Ave., Lakewood, 216.227.9507). It runs through August 1. It’s free. — Michael Gill
