Valley Art Center Gallery
View and share works of all kinds
The only nonprofit art gallery in the Village of Chagrin Falls welcomes thousands of guests and presents hundreds of regional artists in five gallery exhibitions every year. Many national and international artists also exhibit in our professional gallery space, our new hallway gallery and our acclaimed Art by the Falls outdoor art festival. In a broad range of media and styles—from traditional to experimental—novice, emerging, and seasoned artists share artistic expression with the people of Northeast Ohio. Currently on display is the Annual Student/Faculty Art Exhibit. See our Current Exhibits for more information.
Visit an art exhibit
Valley Art Center’s Margaret "Peg" Bowen Gallery is open six days a week during VAC business hours. Enjoy art by regional, national, and even international artists. Stop in between now and March 1 and see It's Elemental: Fire & Water and, in our hallway gallery, astrophotography by members of the Chagrin Valley Astronomical Society.
Monday - Friday: 10am - 4pm
Saturday: 10am - 2pm (except in the summer)

Meet the artists, socialize with the VAC community, and get the first look at five art exhibits each year during our opening receptions. FREE and open to the public with complementary refreshments.

Schedule an Exhibition Tour
Groups are always welcome to visit our gallery! If you schedule a tour, VAC can provide a staff to guide your group through the exhibit and answer questions. Hands-on interpretive projects are available through our educational program for a fee. Contact VAC for more information.
The art in our galleries is available for collectors and art lovers to purchase
VAC exhibits are a great source of fine art for collectors and art lovers. Most of the art on the gallery walls is for sale and purchasing art from our gallery helps support artists and Valley Art Center. Select a piece from our current exhibit when you visit and take an exceptional work of art home or to your office. A preview of some of the work for sale is on our Gallery Sales page.

Thank you to our many dedicated volunteers!
We couldn't do it without our tireless and enthusiastic volunteers. Every exhibition involves several dozen volunteers who program and design the show, create and edit print materials, register artwork, install the art pieces, and staff the opening reception.
