Norfolk art group stages 202nd exhibition!
After a wait of two years, one of Norfolk’s longest-running art groups will be staging its 202nd exhibition.
Norfolk and Norwich Art Circle, which was established in 1885, will show more than 150 works by its members at the Forum in Norwich this May.
The exhibition will feature new selected artworks from members of the group in a variety of mediums, styles and artforms with all artwork for sale.
Hazel Pidsley, chairman of Norfolk and Norwich Art Circle, said: “I am delighted that we can stage an exhibition in The Forum again and I do hope we will attract many visitors to see the varied, high-quality art that is produced by our members.
“There are more than 150 works to peruse in diverse mediums. Thankfully the restrictions have been lifted so I hope people will enjoy the experience of seeing our members’ art in an excellent setting.”
Norfolk and Norwich Art Circle, which is marking its 137th year, was established in 1885 following Crome & Cotman’s famous Norwich Society of Artists and has included in its membership artists of national and international acclaim such as Alfred Munnings, Edward Seago and Bernard Reynolds.
The Norfolk art group now has more than 200 members. Members of the group have access to talks, demonstrations, workshops, trips, social gatherings and a monthly life drawing group
The exhibition at The Forum will run from Friday 6th – Friday 13th May 2022, open from 9am to 5pm daily.
There will be a private view on Friday 6th May 2022 from 6pm when artists will be on hand to speak to guests about their work, to which all are welcome.
Entry to the exhibition is free.

About Norfolk and Norwich Art Circle
The Circle began as the Norwich Art Circle in 1885, following Crome & Cotman’s famous Norwich Society of Artists.
It acquired its full title about forty years later when it merged with the Woodpeckers Art Club, presided over by Nugent Monck. After this, its members increased dramatically. The NNAC has included in its membership artists of national and international acclaim such as Arnesby Brown, Alfred Munnings, Jeffery Camp, Michael Andrews, Bernard Meadows, Edward Seago, Bernard Reynolds and Ian Houston.
The Circle is open to anyone over the age of 17, who is interested in the practice or appreciation of the visual arts and who has connections with East Anglia. Many members have had formal art training, others pursue drawing, painting, printmaking, or sculpture as a pastime. Others simply enjoy learning more about the subject they have always loved. This wide intake leads to a lively exchange of ideas and techniques, providing influences of mutual benefit.
The Circle is run by a Council democratically elected at its Annual General Meeting. The Council organises the yearly programme, and selects the work for the members’ exhibitions. Each year, one third of the Council retires, and a new Chairman is elected. In this way, every member helps to steer the future of the group.
NNAC is proud of its achievements and its democratic system which has served it well for over one hundred years.
