Barbara Weaver-Bosson's is well known nationally for her panoramic paintings of Victoria B.C's. seaside neighbourhoods and harbour views. After graduation from The Alberta College of Art’s four year Fine Art Painting program, Barbara and her partner, fellow ACA grad, Victor Bosson, moved from Calgary, Alberta to Victoria B.C.
In the mid 1970’s Barbara began exhibiting her impressionistic west coast landscape paintings and by 1984 Weaver-Bosson's painting style evolved towards realism. With her deep interest in documenting Victoria residential and urban architecture and to further her artistic skills, Barbara became a member of The Island Illustrators Society in 1986 and enrolled in Camosun College's Architectural Drawing and Perspective Courses in 1986 and 1988.
In Weaver-Bosson's 1986 show at the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria's Massey Gallery, her colourful detailed painting style and refreshing urban vision drew much attention. In 1989, Barbara and Victor Bosson were honoured with their first international exhibition in Victoria's Sister City of Morioka, Japan. Over the years Barbara's Neighbourhood paintings have garnered numerous awards in various juried exhibitions on Canada’s west coast.
To meet the public demand for her architectural paintings, Weaver-Bosson, in 1993, published the first of many limited edition prints of her Neighbourhood Series paintings.
Barbara Weaver-Bosson's paintings are in corporate, public, and private collections in Canada, Japan, USA, UK, Germany, Australia and Iceland.
