Artists are being urged to register and/or ensure that their contact and payment details are up to date, so that they can easily be found and paid if a royalty is collected for them.

Topics that will be covered include:

About the Hunter Arts Network

The Hunter Arts Network, better known as HAN, is the peak professional body for the Visual Arts, Craft & Design sectors in the Hunter region.

To represent, promote and develop visual arts, crafts and design with an emphasis on professional practitioners. Our key objectives are:

  • Advocate on behalf of members
  • Promote communication and collaboration between visual arts, crafts and design groups in the Hunter
  • Promote members’ work to established and emerging markets
  • Provide professional development, occupational opportunities and educational services to members
  • Maintain organisational strength and relevance
  • Ensure traditional and contemporary media are represented

Rising from the idea that Newcastle and the Hunter are FULL of creative people producing high quality art, craft and design-based work, Newcastle City Council spent some years facilitating the establishment of HAN to give representation to these people. NCC’s Cultural Development Champion, Stacey Anderson, worked with the community of practitioners to shape the structure and objectives of HAN.

The annual cost for membership is:

  • $50 for an individual
  • $80 for a gallery, business or community organisation

Winter Art Bazaar Maitland

There is an amazing event coming up next month – the Hunter’s premier artisan bazaar is being held at Maitland on the long weekend. Art Bazaar is held quarterly by the Hunter Arts Network.

When Hunter Arts Network (HAN) holds their first Winter Art Bazaar there will be over 70 designers & artists spread out on the expansive grounds of the impressive Maitland Regional Art Gallery (MRAG), High St Maitland on Sunday 10 June.

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. Only a 30 minute drive west of Newcastle, please make Winter Art Bazaar Maitland, your destination this long weekend.
