West Norfolk Artists Association


The WNAA Summer Exhibition August 2020

At this time of the year the Association's members would normally be showing their art in the historic surroundings of St Nicholas Chapel, King's Lynn. However, this year the exhibition has had to move online, for the safety of the artists and exhibition visitors. Each WNAA member could contribute one artwork to the exhibition, with the subject matter and the medium being the choice of the individual artist. A total of seventy 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 and find their contact details.

Members of the West Norfolk Artists Association will find a special message from two of the founders of the Association, when they reach the end of the exhibition!

Jean Skutela
Pretty Flamingoes
Acrylic
Artwork size 76 x 60 cm

Price £80 unframed

I have wanted to paint flamingos for some time now after visiting the zoo with my granddaughter as she loves them. I tend to paint most of my artwork now in bright tones, So I decided to paint these lovely creatures in the three vivid colours as opposed to their normal salmon pink. As my desired medium is acrylics, there is so much choice of colour palette with these paints, so you can mix lots of lovely colours together. I found some flamingo photographs from unspash, so I used these, changing them slightly.

Michael Smith
Mountain Sheep and Naturists, Crete
Acrylic on panel
Artwork size 35 x 25ins

Price £250 framed

Many years ago I made several drawings on this beach. It's close by to the small town of Plakias, where we were staying on the island of Crete.
Due to the lockdown I find I am now searching through my old sketch books more and more to find subjects. A painting has finally materialised!
What made it ‘a bit special‘ were the mountain sheep which appeared on the hillside. All with tinkling bells around their necks. They then vanished as quickly as they had arrived. A very surreal moment.

To the members of the West Norfolk Artists’ Association

2020 marks the 20th anniversary of the founding of the WNAA. As co-founders of the Association in 2000, Anabel and I were kindly invited to open this year’s exhibition and to select and present the Syd Davison prize at St Nicholas Chapel. Alas, it was not to be. Covid has got the better of us. Undaunted, the management have decided to fight back, using modern technology and mount the exhibition online.

We are obliged to your Chairman, Esther Marshall, for offering us an opportunity to write a few words to say how gratified we both are that the acorn we planted (at Anabel’s suggestion) with the publication of a newsletter for visual artists of West Norfolk in the early part of 2000, eventually turned into the massive oak tree that is now the West Norfolk Artists’ Association. It is an impressive achievement. And it is testimony not only to the need that it has served but also to the skill of the management that has held it together and guided it over the intervening years to what it has since become. May it continue to thrive.

We wish it – and all its members – all the best for the coming years.

Anabel Symington      Michael Bell
