Here you can see a few of the events and exhibitions that formed the 2016 programme for the West Norfolk Artists Association. For current members they might provide some good memories and for new members give a taste of things to come in 2017. Maybe it could be you receiving one of those awards!
Now, as we move into the New Year, plans are being made for another exciting programme of events. Here’s to a truly creative 2017 and good health and good artwork to all WNAA members and artists everywhere.
The images below will open at a larger size if you click or tap them, and there’s a slideshow too.
