Hawkesbury Art Fair goes from Strength to Strength

Hills to Hawkesbury Living Magazine - - Library News -

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.

All work will be for sale. Hawkesbury Re­gional Gallery is lo­cated at Deerub­bin Cen­tre (1st Floor), 300 Ge­orge St, Wind­sor NSW. Phone: (02) 4560 4441
