Michael Voors Michael Voors voorsm@ecu.edu Jenkins Fine Arts Center 215B School of Art and Design East Carolina University, Greenville, NC 27858 Tel.# (252)328-1304; fax # (252)328-6441

Michael Voors is a Professor in the School of Art and Design at East Carolina University where he has taught since 1980.  He received his MFA from Eastern Michigan University in 1980 and BFA from Indiana University, Fort Wayne, Indiana in 1977.

His work has been exhibited nationally and internationally and is included in many public and private collections including:  the Library of Congress, Washington DC; the Fogg Museum, Harvard University; the Diozesanmusuem in Cologne, Germany and the University of Hawaii at Hilo.

He has had solo exhibitions in Amsterdam, the Netherlands; the Southeastern Center For Contemporary Art, Winston-Salem, NC and the College of William and Mary, Williamsburg, VA.  His work has been included in group exhibitions at the Taipei Museum of Fine Arts, Taipei, Taiwan, Republic of China; the Lever House, New York, NY; the Susan Teller Gallery, New York, NY; the Hendricks Gallery, Dublin, Ireland; and the Haggin Museum, Stockton, CA.

In addition to his teaching duties at East Carolina University, Prof. Voors has given lectures and served as a visiting artist or artist-in-residence at schools in Italy, Ireland, Wales, England and universities in the United States.  On five occasions he taught students on studies abroad programs in Italy and throughout Europe.

Much of his work has been nourished by travel- in particular to locations that have an ancient or sacred character. Changing qualities of light, surfaces that reveal the passage of time and variations of architectural passages attempt to move toward larger meanings and associations.  The work is viewed as a tool for participating in a larger mystery.
