By Arts Editor Doreen Jung. To share with someone something that you treasure, is to share with that someone a part of your heart. “Treasures” by the FVWS is a colourful and creative watercolour and mixed media exhibit that reflects the variety of exciting and unique work being produced by its members.

Discover scenes that hold a special place in the hearts of the artists. Moments in time, places visited, and cherished relationships are all part of the show. A glimpse into a fond memory, a peek at an inspiring event; these paintings capture something that has moved the artist to pick up a paintbrush and apply it to canvas.
There is a magic in these paintings emerging somehow through the alchemy of the artist’s brushwork, and thus allowing them to bring their treasures to you.
Also exhibiting paintings are Andrea Chapman, Gwen Gregorig, Sheila Kirk, Deb Nolet, Corinne Popienko, Carol Portree, Cheryl Shaw, Shirley Thomas, and Laurie Thomasson.
