Visual Artists of Welland
Welcome to the VAW Website!

Since the first VAW General Meeting in August 2018, we have been riding on the wave of evident enthusiasm from the Executive and General Members.   Whether you are an art enthusiast, emerging or established artist, there is a place for you!

Except for January, July, and August, there are monthly meetings during which there is usually a guest speaker/demo or social that take place.  Past presenters include artists Pat Haftar and Tracy Greening.  December was the end-of-the-year Christmas social, organized by artist Andrea McGregor.

Looking ahead to 2019, there are many opportunities for members to sell art.

April 5, 6, and 7th:  will be the Spring Fling at the Canada’s Best Value Inn, 1030 Niagara Street (next to Don Cherry’s).

Deadline for application is March 1st for VAW Members, if spots are still available after this date it will be open to non-members. Save the .pdf application file, fill it out (fill & sign option) and email it (to Deedee at or Pam at, or print it, fill it out, and bring to  the February 19th meeting.

June 6-August 24th:  exhibit at the Welland Museum, 140 King Street.

June 10-16th:  VAW and Rose Festival Art Show and Sale—that will take place at the Seaway Mall.  This partnership will certainly result in an improved presentation this year.

In addition, it is our intention to offer bursaries in the near future for the five secondary schools in Welland.

We look forward to having you join the Visual Artists of Welland and invite you to look at our website for more details.
