Hunter Arts Network (HAN) has set up a series of Art Bazaar Cruise Markets to coincide with cruise ships arriving in Newcastle, which complement the quarterly art bazaars held around the Hunter. Locals and visitors are all invited to browse and shop at all Art Bazaars.

Some of the region’s most talented artists are showcasing their works to international and domestic cruise ship visitors who are scheduled to arrive in Newcastle on Sunday 24 March, Thursday 18 April and Sunday 26 May 2013.

More than 30 stallholders attended the first Art Bazaar Cruise Market on Saturday 19 January 2013 & tourists got a taste of Newcastle's vibrant art scene with some of the area’s most talented artists showcasing their works.

Original handcrafted goods will be showcased by HAN's finest artists, designers, jewellers & craft people from the Hunter, “It’s a great opportunity for local artists to show their works and hopefully send them off around the world as precious reminders of visiting our beautiful city. With 1000s of visitors coming to Newcastle over the next few months it’s a great way to showcase local creativity and talent”, Donna McKinnis, HAN

While labouring to promote artisans, Art Bazaar creates the ideal platform to educate the community to invest in locally produced high quality visual arts, craft and design: “All participants need to go through a formal application process assessed by a panel of Art Professionals in order to participate – this way HAN can guarantee a very high standard”, Leah Fawthrop, President of HAN.

Visitors to Newcastle and the Hunter can enjoy meeting the artists and designers who have carefully created for the markets being held outside Newcastle Museum, Workshop Way, Newcastle, under the awnings. There will also be demonstrations, ATM’s, and Sprout Canteen is conveniently located at Newcastle Museum.
