The Reveal: HNW’s collection of local heritage artwork

Nels Nelson House, 127 Queen’s Avenue Artist: Angela Au Hemphill Photo: Paul Fuoco

It’s our (unintended) best-kept secret — Heritage New West’s collection of 38 works of art, featuring local heritage homes depicted in oroiginal drawings and watercolours and high-quality prints by artists Raymond Hargreaves, Jo Scott B, Robin Ward and Angela Au Hemphill. The artworks are professionally framed and well-preserved over their 40+ years – sometimes in storage, and, for a long time, gracing the halls of Westminster Savings Credit Union.

Some of the featured prints honour outstanding building projects that won the prestigious Royal City Builders Award. Sponsored by Westminster Savings Credit Union, the award was presented annually by the City of New Westminster Chamber of Commerce and the New Westminster from the 1980s into the early 2000s.

We’re offering the legacy for acquisition to support New West students

The time has come to offer these original drawings, watercolours, and prints for sale to interested members of our heritage community. All the proceeds will go to an annual scholarship (in development) for New West students.

The Plan: We are approaching homeowners whose homes are featured in the collection, extending them the opportunity to acquire their respective piece of art. Following this, we will open the sale to the public and provide purchase information and updates through our website, HNW newsletter, and Facebook page.

View the collection in person: The collection will be exhibited at the Art Gallery in Queen’s Park and other locations (dates to be announced) and at our annual Heritage Homes Tour on Sunday, May 26, 10 am – 5 pm.

View the collection online: Scroll through the collection below. The heritage home’s name is featured if we have it (please let us know if you can add names to some of the addresses).

We thank Paul Fuoco, HNW’s official photographer, for photographing each piece of art in the following sections.
