West Norfolk Artists Association


The WNAA Spring Exhibition April 2021

At this time of the year the Association's members would normally be showing their art up on the North Norfolk coast, in Thornham Village Hall. However, once again the exhibition has had to move online, although we do hope to welcome visitors to 'actual' exhibitions before too long.

Each WNAA member was allowed to contribute one artwork to the exhibition, with the subject matter and the medium being the choice of the individual artist. A total of fifty-one members took part, so enjoy the wide range of art on show!

If you are interested in purchasing any of the works shown, please contact the artist direct. You will find the details in the information displayed alongside each image. Some artists have their own website or a page on this website, where you can see more examples of their work.
