Contributed by: Don Valley Art Club Show Committee
The Don Valley Art Club Holiday Art Show and Sale opens Wednesday, November 9th. For this festive season we will be back at the beautiful Papermill Gallery, part of the historic and restored Todmorden Mills Heritage Site. The site also includes a museum, theatre and forest reserve in the heart of the city.
Originally established in 1948, the DVAC for many years had its clubhouse at the Todmorden location. Members have always been enthusiastic about creating art outdoors and to this day are often seen painting and sketching on the grounds and neighbouring areas.
The club also recognizes that viewing and buying art online has become a new reality that is here to stay as an increasing number of people turn to shopping online. The added benefit of an online show is that it provides an opportunity to bring the joy of art to more people. For some it may be for preference or convenience. For others who are not able to be there in person for a variety of reasons, but relish the pleasure of viewing art from their home, they are still able to see and purchase art should they choose.
The DVAC continues to be a thriving community of talented artists who pursue a passion for making beautiful art in all varieties of subject matter, styles and media. More than 100 artists will be presenting their art to a growing audience, both near and far. Each artist will hang a favorite piece of art in the Gallery with additional art works online.
The in-person Gallery show runs from Wednesday, November 9th until Sunday, November 20th (11:00 am – 4:00 pm), with the simultaneous online show continuing until November 27th.
When the show opens, a link to the online show will be available at the website: https://donvalleyartclub.com/ .
