Saturday 6 December 2014 10am – 9pm
Civic Park, Cnr King & Darby Sts, Newcastle
This original home of Art Bazaar in the heart of Newcastle, adjacent to Newcastle Art Gallery & close to Darby Street, is where over 10,000 eager art fans come each year to purchase creative Christmas presents. This year will attract more potential buyers, as we will be sharing Civic Park with the City of Newcastle who will be holding a major Christmas event! The festivities will include face painting, kids activities, schools will be involved in making Christmas wishing trees, entertainment from 5-8pm & turning on the lights on the Christmas tree at 8pm. Art Bazaar will be included in an enormous amount of advertising & publicity through The City of Newcastle’s marketing for their event.
Art Bazaar is a 2014 Finalist in the Hunter & Central Coast Awards for Excellence in Tourism & has become a highly anticipated event for both the public and the participating stallholders. It has stimulated the arts community and increased public awareness of the Hunter’s diverse artistic culture, successfully displaying the many individuals, groups, organisations and businesses. Applications are selected from Hunter Arts Network members and we carefully hand pick stallholders to ensure that shoppers have an array of local, handmade, unique, original & quality products. We do not accept mass produced or imported products. Hunter Arts Network strives to promote professionalism and maintain the high standard of art works on offer at Art Bazaar, and encourage emerging Artists to take the opportunity to present their talent.
Art Bazaar is free entry & there are also demonstrations, a mobile ATM, food & refreshments, Art in the Park, yarn bombing, Starlight foundation will assist crocheting a coral reef, Martien Vanzuilen’s felt yurt, who will also be running workshops while she is here (visit http://www.martienvanzuilen.com/the-yurt-project.html)
