WNAA Exhibitions

The Association is not primarily an exhibiting group, but as part of promoting the work of its members usually has three exhibitions per year. Members are encouraged to enter work for these exhibitions and although all the shows are selected by curators we try where possible to include at least one or two works from all entrants.

Our Next Exhibition

As we move into 2024, the Association's members are looking forward to our first exhibition of the year. As usual in the Spring, this will be held in the Village Hall at Thornham on the North Norfolk coast. The venue is well known for art exhibitions and has the benefit of being adjacent to the popular Thornham Deli and Cafe. The exhibition will run over the Easter 2024 weekend, from Friday 29th March until Monday 1st April, open each day from 10.00am - 4.00pm.

WNAA Art Challenges

During the pandemic, the Association set the membership a variety of art challenges, to keep everyone making artwork in those difficult times. Some of the challenge entries can be viewed from the links below. We hope you enjoy our members efforts!

Art Challenge - Inspired by Music Art Challenge - On the Beach Art Challenge - Abstract or Flowers, the artist's choice Art Challenge - Norfolk in the style of a French Impressionist

How to take part in a WNAA exhibition

Association exhibitions are only open to members, so you first need to ensure that your membership of the WNAA is current. There are a number of rules for each exhibition, relating to size and type of work and how recently it has been created. The venues used normally require invigilating throughout the run of the show, so members entering work must be prepared to undertake two or more invigilating sessions of usually 3 hours each.

Entry forms for all WNAA exhibitions are sent to all members well in advance of each show. However, you can download general exhibition regulations from the links below.
