Art Wall Puts Colour Into Welland


Artists Karen Edwards and Atom Dellow are shown at work on the Welland Art Wall early Monday evening. Edwards is giving the ‘a’ in Welland a sports theme, focusing on dragonboat racing while Dellow has given the ‘n’ a salute to industry theme, focusing on the past (heavy industry) and what’s ahead (high tech). The volunteer-based project is certainly making a corner of Welland (East Main and Hellems) colourfully attractive while making us more cognizant of the community’s history and heritage. Edwards also painted the ‘d’ in Welland, filling it with images of firefighting heritage, including the iconic, former Central Fire Station, which is located nearby. (Photos by Joe Barkovich)
