Artist realizes his dream a lifetime later

Frank Pasian believes it’s never too late to follow a dream.

“My artist friends, who are my age, and I … say we’re so lucky that we have this,” Pasian said.

It just took a good part of a lifetime to realize that dream.

The Don Valley Art Club (DVAC) had its first exhibition of the year on Nov. 25, in the art gallery at the Todmorden Mills Heritage Site. The exhibit included art created by Pasian. But his artistic journey was a longtime coming; he started painting at a very young age, and then stopped.
