Davesté Vineyard Artists

We are a group of eight artists with varied backgrounds.

We meet in the little brick house located at the entrance of  Davesté Vineyards. We began meeting in the fall of 2004 and meet every Tuesday from 10:00-2:30 or longer as needed.


The  Davesté Vineyard Artists are

Esté Defehr (Artistic Director for Davesté Vineyards), Peggy Edwards Jones, Sherry Defazio, Sasha Schwendener, Nancy Newton, June Fluegel , Shirley Ballard, Mira Blanchard and Susan Damico. We work mainly in the watercolor medium, but also with pastel, oils, acrylics and collage. We have studied under the tutelage of Edrie Knight from Statesville; Carol Ann Whitmore-Herring from Statesville; Noyes Capehart from Boone; Sterling Edwards from Hendersonville; Chuck McLachlan from Greensboro; and some of us under Zolten Zabo, and Ben Long from Statesville/France and many others. The Daveste’ Vineyard Artists display their paintings mainly at the

Daveste’ Vineyards Tasting Room/Art Gallery and at Mooresville Art Guild exhibiting also in other local exhibitions.

At Davesté Vineyards, we support local artists by conducting workshops and exhibiting works in our Tasting Room.

Our Art Gallery page is new and will provide information on featured exhibits, workshops and artist biographies.
