The National Exhibition of Wildlife Art is an open annual exhibition based in the North of England.
NEWA was conceived in 1993 by a group of artists interested in depicting wildlife, with conservation as one of their underlying concerns. A donation from the exhibition is made each year to wildlife causes.
The aims of the exhibition are to promote and display outstanding examples of wildlife art from both professional and amateur artists.
The huge interest generated by the exhibition among wildlife artists proved that there was a pressing need for this kind of event.
Our exhibition is staged at Gordale Garden Centre in a specially constructed gallery space which attracts a constant stream of visitors, over 15,000 to our 2009 show. Our new website attracts an equal number of visitors and sells to buyers both in the UK and abroad.
Due to this increasing success entries have risen with each subsequent year. 2009 saw over 45% of the works on show sold, a very high percentage for any exhibition.
Non of this would be possible without our many volunteer helpers who give us their time, energy and expertise every year.
