Welcome to the Natural World Art Society
( NWAS )
We are an art group whose membership includes artists from all over Europe
who have a passion for wildlife art.
We hold regular exhibitions at our home Gallery at Banham Zoo, Norfolk.
The Art Gallery, which is located on the approach to the main entrance at the Zoo,
is our new home, continuing the association we have had with Banham Zoo and ZSEA for the past twenty years.
WE ARE ALSO PROUD TO SAY THAT WE ARE THE ONLY ESTABLISHED
ZOO BASED OPEN ART EXHIBITION IN THE UK!!
The Natural World Art Group (NWAG) was created in 1998 by a group of established East Anglian artists with the aim to encourage fellow artists and new talent
to discover the zoo and its animal residents, make use of the facilities it can provide
and utilise the resource. Following our Summer Exhibition in 2017, when we were offered a new gallery space outside the Zoo entrance, the decision was made to change the name to the
Natural World Art Society (NWAS)
NWAS is managed by a small volunteer committee of local artists who stage annual art exhibitions within the zoo. Funds raised from commission on the sales of work directly support the activities of the Zoological Society of East Anglia (ZSEA)
and has raised almost £50,000 to date
ZSEA is active in wildlife conservation at both
and assists with funding conservation projects in the wild.
NWAS is now established as one of the leading wildlife art groups in the UK
We welcome all ‘wildlife and the living world’ artists to participate,
from novice to seasoned professional, whether locally based or from further afield.
