The Society holds three exhibitions throughout the year

Awash, selected exhibition provides an opportunity for residents of East Anglia to exhibit their work. It is a juried show and will be held in February in Norfolk.

Spring Exhibition is a showcase for full members of the Society. It is usually held in Suffolk.

In 2021, the late summer/early autumn exhibition was our Festival of Watercolour, open exhibition. In previous years this festival was held in Norfolk at Wells Maltings. This year it was held in Cambridgeshire.


The society awards prizes for paintings determined to be best in show by the judges at our annual selected exhibition.
