The painting of Philippa Faulkner hangs in our Boardroom. It is by member, Bill Sherman, and as it predates her membership, she and her painting had a presence in the Club before women were admitted in 1985. She joined us in 1989 and remained a member until her death 12 years later.

This is a drawing by Arthur Lismer of member Peter Haworth, in the persona of the Marquesa Casati (1881-1957). She was the most scandalous woman of her day and a favourite subject of prominent painters and photographers. This drawing probably records a club event occasioned by the 1934 purchase by the Art Gallery of Toronto (now AGO) of Augustus John's portrait of Casati.

Are you an artist or teacher, art supporter or cheerleader in any of the creative and performing arts? The Club could be your home-away-from-home.

We are not a “dining Club”, but we do have an excellent Chef de Cuisine, and offer lunches and dinners preceding a speaker or performance.  Members are free to attend any or all of these programs and to bring guests to most of them.

We will be happy to meet you, introduce you to some Club members, and show you around.  You can use this link to let the office know you are coming, and we will be sure to have a member there to welcome you!
