King's Lynn's St Nicholas Chapel showpiece for local art talent
The West Norfolk Artists Association will hold its Summer Exhibition at St Nicholas’ Chapel, Lynn, later this month.
A preview will be held on Friday, August 23, between 7-9pm while the main dates are: Saturday, August 24 to Monday, September 2, 10.30am-4.30pm; and September 3, 10.30am-1pm.
This free-entry popular annual exhibition is the main showpiece of the Association.
Previously exhibiting alongside the festival, this year they have moved the dates to include the August bank holiday so the exhibition can be bigger and better than ever.
All the artists are local to West Norfolk. Some are well-known professional artists whose work features in private collections around the globe.
You may have unknowingly bought their work featured on a greetings card or other items. Or you may already have a favourite local artist whose work you are collecting.
Other artists in the association are just starting out, maybe entering their first exhibition. It can be a scary prospect to show your work for the first time.
The Association exists to encourage all local artists to show off their talent and this exhibition gives them a chance to share all their hard work.
The People’s Choice Award is always popular with visitors getting a chance to choose their favourite piece and it’s a great feeling for any artist to have people vote for their work. It helps the artists to keep in touch with local opinion. There will also be other recognition of talent including The Syd Davison award and the Inga Miller award.
The Association stated: “There’s something for everyone. Featuring paintings, photographs, printmaking, ceramics, sculpture and more, it’s one of our best shows ever.
“With new faces alongside our more established artists, however you like your art, traditional or contemporary, on or off the wall, mark the date and we’ll see you there.”
