Next Exhibition

Awash 2021


We hope that you have had a relaxing and peaceful festive season despite the challenging year we have had, the recent and rapid rise in Covid cases locally and Tier 4 restrictions across our region. We are sure that most of you will not be surprised that we have decided to suspend both our physical and online Awash exhibitions at Wells-next-the-Sea, scheduled for February 2021.

We have been in regular dialogue with the Handa Gallery at Wells Maltings for the last few weeks reviewing the status of the pandemic and local Covid restrictions and it became clear to the Committee last weekend that we could not go ahead with the planned Awash Exhibition.

Finally, Happy New Year to you all and thank you from all of the Committee for your support and encouragement this year.

Mel Collins (Chair)

The Society holds three exhibitions throughout the year

Awash Festival of Watercolours is held at the beginning of the year in Norfolk

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

Selected Exhibition provides an opportunity for residents of East Anglia to exhibit their work. It is a juried show and is usually held towards end of summer/beginning of autumn in Cambridgeshire.


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