Visual Artists of Welland
Welcome to the VAW Website!

Take some time to look around.

On July 4, 2018, Pam Duncan and Deedee Alexandre first sat down and talked about their vision of having an artist group in the Welland area.  It has been a thrill ride since then!

Since September 2018, we’ve had the April Spring Fling Art Show and Sale, the June VAW/Rose Festival Art Show and Sale partnership, two art exhibits at the Welland Historical Museum, and presented the VAW Scholarship Award to five deserving students from the five secondary schools in Welland.

The VAW usually meets on the third Monday of each month—between September and June (except January).  Always best to check this website or Facebook.   Membership cost is $35.00—September to September.  Whether you are an art enthusiast, emerging or established artistthere is a place for you! 

Looking ahead, in 2020, there will be a 2nd Annual Spring Fling Art Show and Sale—April 3-5, another VAW/Rose Festival Art Show and Sale partnership in June, another exhibit at the Welland Historical Museum also in June, and more scholarship awards!

Consider joining us at a meeting:  Chippawa Park Community Centre, Welland at 6:30 p.m.

Monday, September 16         Monday, November 18

Monday, October 28              Monday, December 16

Deedee and Pam would like to thank everyone—Board and VAW members, business who contributed in any way, the community who supported us, Mayor Campion and his office, Vance Badawey, MP, Jeff Burch, MPP’s office, and Keith Cumming who believed in them.  It was a fabulous first year!  Thank you.
