Art & Artisan Fair: this Sunday 29th April uPflash!

0

YES, just what you’ve been waiting for April’s Affordable Art and Artisan Fair at the Black Sheep Bar & Grill Whakamarama.   The Fair is a not-for-profit collaborative community venture by ARTbop and the Black Sheep!

We’re able to hold our Fairs all year round because of the variety of places and spaces within the Black Sheep Complex.   If it’s windy and raining you’ll find us all in the cafe and Atrium itself and if it’s sunny well – we’ll be everywhere.  Check out Isaac’s amazing outdoor art above…so popular!

There’s live music:  two sessions – so you’re bound to enjoy!

There are both regular and new exhibitors at every Fair.  To make it easy to find out who’s just joined the Affordable Art & Artisan team…

Another new exhibitor!

You’ll enjoy the good food you can have at the Black Sheep – join the Sunday brunch crew or come for lunch!  Lots of menu items and now also a selection of delicious cabinet food.    See you Sunday!

OUR APRIL FAIR:  We’ve an emphasis on our “harvest” this Fair:  our creative harvest and you’ll find plenty of that.   We’ll be having a Harvest produce basket for the April Fair prize.  You have to be in to win!

Just look at all these prizes!

Look what I’ve won!

And who took home this box of choco goodies?

Everyone, from everywhere got involved in finding all the “Easter Eggs”
