A big congratulations goes out to Deedee Alexandre and Pam Duncan, both from Welland, on being selected for the Citizen of the Year Award, Arts and Culture - Vance Badawey, MP Niagara Centre.
Pam and Deedee spent the past year starting up the Visual Artists of Welland, a non-profit organization for visual artists, based in Welland, but open for all artists to join. In their first year, they provided art presentations and workshops for their members on a monthly basis, ran the first ever Spring Fling Art Show and Sale in April 2019, co-ordinated the Art Exhibition for the Rose Festival 2019, and have run two Member Exhibits at the Welland Museum.
The year is not over - stay tuned for more information about a show in the fall...!
[The barbecue is free - please let the organizers know by August 15th if want to attend (food needs to be ordered). Call: 905-788-2206.]
