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.

Thanks to Stockland Glendale we have received $500 which will go towards promoting our next Art Bazaar at LMCAG on 31 May!
