Don Valley Art Club Show and Sale

The Don Valley Art Club Spring Art Show and Sale opens Wednesday, April 27th. No longer limited to being online, the club is excited to simultaneously return to having an “in-person” show at its familiar haunt. The beautiful Papermill Gallery is part of the his-toric and restored Todmorden Mills Heritage Site, which includes a museum, art gal-lery, 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 out-doors and to this day are often seen painting and sketching on the grounds. In keeping with that tradition, on Sunday, May 1st the Art Show will include a plein air event. You are welcome to join them as an observer or a participant if you are so inclined. And while you are there, take time to explore and become reacquainted with the Heritage Site.

The club also recognizes that viewing and buying art online has become a new reality that appears to be 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, despite pan-demic restrictions, 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 favourite piece of art in the Gallery with additional art works online.

The in-person Gallery show runs from Wednesday, April 27th until May 9th (11:00 am – 4:00 pm), with the simultaneous online show continuing until May 15th.

When the show opens, a link to the online show will be available at the website: .
