Nov. 10, 2010 - PRLog -- The Don Valley Art Club is one of the oldest art clubs in Toronto. The DVAC was founded in 1948 in a public school on Chester Avenue by a group of people whose shared desire was to create art.  A few years later the club members built a clubhouse at the foot of Don Mills Road. In 1972 the club moved to Todmorden Mills, which was its home until 2000, when the DVAC relocated to its current headquarters - restored building at the old Toronto Brick Works and former site of the Don Valley Pressed Brick Works Company producing bricks between 1889-1989.

Club location provides inspiration for the outdoor painting  as it is a post industrial site surrounded by wetlands, meadows and trees.The site was recently beautified, preserved and developed by Evergreen and became destination for family friendly activities.

The Don Valley Art Club has a rich cultural heritage with many programs that include painting sessions, socializing, lectures and demonstrations by guest artists, workshops, and painting excursions. The club has 170 members and a growing waiting list. The DVAC is registered non-profit organization, it provides an opportunity to the citizens of Toronto to learn about and participate in the visual arts.

The DVAC traditionally presents three exhibitions per year in the gallery at Todmorden Mills, offering for sale works of their members, often established and experienced artists.  

The upcoming event  - Small and Large Picture Art Show and Sale is a great occasion to visit Gallery and get acquainted with works of Don Valley Club artists. The event and Parking are Free.
