Summer Art Bazaar moved from Laman Street to Civic Park two years ago which has seen an increase in the number of stalls and crowds of over 10,000. The event has been growing in popularity and size since the very first Art Bazaar held in Laman Street under the gorgeous fig trees. Wander through the colourful & vibrant Civic Park, Newcastle on Saturday 1 December from 9am – 3pm & discover the work of more than 100 designers & artists. Start or finish your Christmas shopping at the home of the original Art Bazaar with unusual gifts & one-off pieces. For your convenience there will now be ATM’s available at Art Bazaar.
Art Bazaar features a variety of premium handmade products including fashion, jewellery, accessories, fine art, photography, sculptures & homewares. 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. Shoppers will enjoy meeting the artists & designers who have carefully created for the reputable event providing access beyond the boundaries of the gallery. The warm & friendly setting allows for stallholders to always be approachable to chat about their work. It is an affordable opportunity for both the public & the creative people of Newcastle & the Hunter. Enjoy the atmosphere of a world class Gallery and meet the Artisans of the Hunter.
