Art Bazaar, New Lambton – Sunday 27th November, 2016

Your world will be brighter with a visit to the enchanting Art Bazaar which is presented by Hunter Arts Network who carefully select a wide variety of stalls featuring premium handmade products. Art Bazaar has cemented it’s reputation as the event that showcases the Hunter’s creative & vibrant art community that locals & visitors look forward to three times each year.

Since 2002 the Hunter’s premier artisan & design marketplace, Art Bazaar, has been held every year. Art Bazaar started in Laman street under the shade of the beautiful fig trees between Darby and Dawson Street.  In 2009 it was moved into Civic Park due to the safety issues of the Laman Street figs.  Since 2012 Art Bazaar has been held three times every year at three locations by Hunter Arts Network (HAN) which is a non-profit membership of artisans from the Hunter region.  HAN continues to develop a presence on the art and cultural event calendar of the Hunter and NSW.

Art Bazaars feature original handcrafted goods from over 100 local HAN artists. Art Bazaar is free entry.  Enjoy meeting the artists & designers who have carefully created for the reputable event providing access beyond the boundaries of the gallery.

Recent accolades:
Volunteer Grants 2015
