Several of our members spent the day at the Fermoy Gallery on Heritage Day demonstrating and engaging visitors in various activities. 670 people came through! We were there partly to flag up West Norfolk Artists Association, to help get the gallery space noticed and of course to encourage participation in the arts. We had a mini exhibition as well showing work by those who were involved.
Our annual Summer Exhibition at St Nicholas Chapel, King’s Lynn was a little later than usual this year, due to the Chapel not being available for our usual King’s Lynn Festival slot. However, we still had plenty of visitors to the show and there were good sales of the exhibited works.
The 2019 Spring Exhibition which took place over the Easter weekend was a success with 118 pieces from 61 artists plus mounted work and cards.

The Norwich School of Painters were a group of artists living and painting in Norwich in the late 18th and early 19th century. They included John Crome, John Sell Cotman, and others who can justifiably be considered masters of 19th century British art and they formed the Norwich Society of Artists which was the first and longest lasting provincial artists association to hold regular exhibitions in Britain.
