History

 

IMGP2243VAM was founded in 1977 by three Mississauga artists – Beth Southcott, Fay Sproule and Gerry de Jong – to provide meeting and studio space for a growing number of residents interested in the arts. In 1981, the organization began operating out of Springbank Art Centre on Mississauga Road. This location is now the site of University of Toronto Mississauga Campus. VAM has established a long, vibrant and important history of providing fine art courses and creative opportunities to the citizens of the Greater Mississauga Area. VAM’s founders had a creative vision and a strong sense of artistic community that is still felt by our students, staff, board, members and visitors 38 years later. We honour our past and look forward to many more years of art-making and community building and bridging.
