Arty Places #12 - Lambton Spring Art Show

St John the Baptist Anglican Church in Lambton ( Newcastle NSW) became Arty Place #12 in this blog's series of Arty Places last weekend.  This was such a great community event and I was so happy to participate in a local "arty" event right in my own neighbourhood.

The  show's opening was a special occasion, with my friend and local politician, Sonia Hornery, Member for Wallsend, officiating. This art show also had the best background music - usually at these shows there is pre recorded music over a speaker, but on Friday night, we had the most beautiful harp musical accompaniment and on Saturday, a very accomplished musician on the piano.

While the Spring Art Show has focussed on paintings, a number of artisans attended this year with displays of their work. Here is some of the work in the section of the show where I was.

I didn't sell much, but I had a really lovely time and enjoyed the opportunity to show some of my stuff.

As is my usual practice, if I sell anything, I use the money to buy someone else's art - this is the quirky little ceramic teapot I purchased.
And this is a beautiful handmade glass plate gifted to me by the lovely Libby Callaghan from Oceanlights Glass Art - my neighbouring stand at the art show.  ( see more of Oceanlights stunning glass art at the  Hunter Art Bazaar )
What a wonderful "arty" weekend ... thanks to all the organisers, fellow exhibitors and patrons.
