The rescheduled date for Hunter Arts Network’s (HAN) fourth annual Lake Macquarie Art Bazaar is Sunday 31 May 2015 & I will be having a stall. HAN was forced to postpone Art Bazaar due to poor weather. Art Bazaar will be returning to the grounds of Lake Macquarie City Art Gallery (LMCAG) from 10am – 3pm. Located on the shores of beautiful Lake Macquarie, this award winning gallery with expansive grounds including Sculpture Park, mosaic pathway & Awaba House Restaurant Café is an exceptional cultural and tourist destination. Hunter Arts Network is thrilled to announce we have received a 2015 Stockland Community Grant!!! Thanks to Stockland Glendale we have received $500 which will go towards promoting our next Art Bazaar at LMCAG on 31 May! See all the winners here: http://www.stockland.com.au/assets/about-stockland/community-grants-winners-240415.pdf A 2014 Finalist in the Hunter & Central Coast Awards for Excellence in Tourism, Art Bazaar has developed into a major art event for the region which now attracts many visitors from out of the area and is the Hunter’s premier artisan and design marketplace.

The Art Bazaars are FREE entry & there is also demonstrations & live music.
Art Bazaar is the ideal platform for the community to invest in locally produced visual arts, craft & design, including professional practitioners, who will have their work showcased in a supportive and creative atmosphere. TAFE students from the School of Fine Art, are also participating giving them great experience in the commercial realities of the art world.
The popular event has grown & evolved & there is now one Art Bazaar every season, an increase from only one per year. HAN’s first Autumn Art Bazaar in the grounds of Lake Macquarie City Art Gallery was a resounding success for the stallholders, the public and HAN. “We have developed a loyal following which is attracting large crowds to each Art Bazaar every season & the Autumn Art Bazaar received fabulous feedback”, said Leah Fawthrop, President of HAN, “all participants need to go through a formal application process assessed by a panel of Art Professionals in order to participate – this way HAN can guarantee a very high standard.”
Shoppers will enjoy meeting the artists & designers who have carefully created for the reputable event providing access beyond the boundaries of the gallery. It is an affordable opportunity for both the public & the creative people of Newcastle & the Hunter.
There’s the chance to win one of five lucky door prizes. One prize will be drawn every hour. Win marvelous art & dazzling jewellery which has been hand-made by our talented artists & designers.
Enjoy the atmosphere of a world class Gallery and meet the Artisans of the Hunter. There is an onsite café that will be open serving breakfast and lunch and will also have an extra food stall available in anticipation of the crowds.
