The fourth annual Lake Macquarie Art Bazaar at Lake Macquarie City Art Gallery is being held on Sunday 3 May 2015 from 10am to 3pm.

Hunter Arts Network’s (HAN) fourth annual Lake Macquarie Art Bazaar will return to the grounds of Lake Macquarie City Art Gallery (LMCAG) on Sunday 3 May 2015 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.

This year Art Bazaar is being held on the weekend before Mothers Day so this will be a great opportunity to reach out to an increased audience in search of unique Mother’s Day gifts.

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 & is the Hunter’s premier artisan & design marketplace. Art Bazaar is a great way to show families & visitors how wonderful our creative community is.

HAN is a non-profit membership of artisans from the Hunter who carefully hand pick stallholders to ensure that shoppers have an array of local, handmade, unique, original & quality products, making Art Bazaar an affordable opportunity for both the public & the creative people of Newcastle & the Hunter. Enjoy meeting the artists & designers who have carefully created for the reputable event providing access beyond the boundaries of the gallery.

Art Bazaar is free entry. There’s also demonstrations, entertainment, food & drinks, & a quick stroll to LMCAG for exhibitions including (In)visible: the First Peoples and War which is showing from 27 March to 24 May.

What you get?
– Promote and sell your products and business face to face with the customer
– This is a great marketing opportunity to raise your profile and increase brand awareness to large broader audiences
– A highly anticipated market held three times every year attracting visitors from Maitland, Lake Macquarie, Newcastle, Hunter region, day-trippers and holiday makers from surrounding areas.
– Opportunity for practitioners and organisations to develop professional networks
– Many people find a gallery somewhat intimidating, so this is a great way to introduce Art to potential customers.
