Art Expo Nelson Update

The 2014 show was heralded as a great success by everyone who attended.  This was reflected in the heart-warming  feedback from the public and positive articles generated by the local papers.

Visitors to the show loved meeting our artists as much as the opportunity to sit in the onsite café and soak up the creative juices (yes that's what the serviette was for).  In addition, 6200 visitors and an important number of dedicated volunteers, artists and Art Expo Nelson staff helped Pomeroys get through 26 kilos of premium full-bodied coffee.

About the venue
For the first time this year,  Saxton Stadium hosted our three-day art event.  With over 2000 square meters of up-to-date facilities, it was the perfect frame for our contributors' artworks.  It successfully displayed over 1000 creations by more than 115 artists and subsequently got the proverbial thumbs up from everyone we spoke to.    So good news, we're all booked in for next October.  Come join us!
