Welcome

Welcome to the Visual Artists of Welland website! We’re glad you’re here. Take some time to look around and meet the artists.

Whether you are an art enthusiast, emerging or established artist, there is a place for you with the VAW!

WHAT'S ON NOW:

The Visual Artists of Welland have been busy bees lately! Now that restrictions have lifted once again, the Board of Directors has prepared the Gallery Shop for the long-awaited re-opening.

GALLERY SHOP in SEAWAY MALL

The Visual Artists of Welland Gallery Shop at the Seaway Mall has re-opened! There are 18 members who have their art for sale in this bright and comfortable space. There will be a 25% discount off all items from February 22 to February 28 - don't miss this great opportunity!

To find us, go through the Pizza Pizza Mall entrance and we’re right near Freedom Mobile. You can CLICK the image to see a video of the gallery, full of gorgeous artwork by local artists.

Why not drop into the Gallery Shop and make a day of shopping at the Seaway Mall?

Come join in the fun, and buy and support local.
