Hawkesbury Art Fair goes from strength to strength

The fourth Hawkesbury Art Fair will be held at Hawkesbury Regional Gallery from Friday, 8 September to Sunday, 8 October 2017, and according to Gallery Director, Kathleen von Witt, it will be the biggest yet.

“The Art Fair is when the Gallery becomes a showcase for the diversity of creative people in this beautiful region,” Kath said.

“It’s also an opportunity for local artists to sell their work and for residents and visitors to the area to buy original art from the region’s best-known and accomplished artists.

“We started out in a small way four years ago, but every year has been an improvement on the last, and we have every reason to believe that 2017 will be bigger and better than ever.”

Last year’s Art Fair resulted in more than $10,000 worth of sales – a great result according to the Mayor of Hawkesbury, Councillor Mary Lyons-Buckett, who will officially open the 2017 Fair at 6pm on Friday, 8 September.

The event will feature the best traditional and contemporary artists, designers and crafters living and working in the Hawkesbury, as well as guest artists and students from Penrith and Blue Mountains.

Organisations represented at the fair include Hawkesbury Community Art Workshop

Piggery Lane Studios, Hawkesbury Artists and Artisans Trail, Hawkesbury Printmakers Inc., Hawkesbury Camera Club, Macquarie Towns Art Society, Ferry Artists, MTNS Made, Nepean Arts & Design Centre, and Hawkesbury Woodcraft Co-operative, along with guest artists James Fletcher (glass) and Dorothea Finger (ceramics).

All work will be for sale.
