Wellspring Visual ArtNetwork Association began in 2006 with the intent to provide venues and opportunities to show and sell the works of local area artists. We also inform members of workshops and other training opportunities locally and regionally.

Membership in Wellspring Visual ArtNetwork is achieved through a jury process; therefore, creation of original, quality artworks is a prerequisite. We consider applications from throughout the Central Alberta region.
