Spring is in the Air! Visual Artists of Welland present their first annual Art Show & Sale April 5th- 7th.
Spring Fling Art Show and Sale in Welland
The Visual Artists of Welland is a non-profit organization that was started in August 2018. They are presenting their inaugural “Spring Fling Art Show and Sale” this coming weekend, April 5th – 7th, with hopes it will develop into an annual event. It will be held at Canada’s Best Value Inn, 1030 Niagara Street, Welland (near the Fair Grounds). Twenty-six artists will be displaying their talents, including watercolours, acrylics, mixed media, scratch art, and more -- a little something for everyone’s taste in various price ranges.
The Opening Reception is Friday, April 5th from 6 p.m. - 9 p.m. At 7 p.m., Deedee Alexandre and Pam Duncan, the Co-Presidents and founders of the Visual Artists of Welland, will welcome guest speakers: Gail Todd, a representative from Vance Badawey, MP’s Office, Jeff Burch, MPP, and Keith Cumming, President of the Prime Way Group - Platinum Sponsor. There will be light refreshments provided courtesy of VAW members, MT Bellies, Zehrs, and Sobeys on opening night. On Saturday, April 6 and Sunday, April 7, the hours are 10 a.m.-5 p.m.
Help spread the news - local artists, businesses, organizations, and community coming together!
