Art Bazaar held at Warners Bay today

Art Bazaar was held at Warners Bay today for the first time by Hunter Arts Network where I had a stall to sell my paintings. Despite an overnight drenching and almost gale force winds, the weather calmed down and the event went ahead. We had a very overcast day but we still managed to attract a great crowd which was constant for most of the event, although we had to pack up one hour early when the weather suddenly turned again. There were almost 60 artisan stalls at the market and I had a pleasing result with two of my paintings being sold. For more information about the event visit
