When the Visual Artists of Welland was sorting through the paperwork with the City of Welland, just before getting started, the topic of where to hold meetings came up. The City so graciously offered the Chippawa Park Community Centre Main Meeting Room. This bright and still relatively new space was just the right size for the group in its early beginnings. With a small kitchen, a cozy fireplace, ample space for chairs and tables, elevator accessibility, and plenty of parking, the dream of having a visual arts group in Welland was being matched with a beautiful and welcoming home for Monthly General Meetings.
Each meeting started with updates from the Board members, and was soon followed by the scheduled presentation or workshop. The photos speak for themselves - everyone was having a ball being a member of the new Visual Artists of Welland!
