Art expo brightens up Saxton Stadium


Saxton Stadium is teeming with art and people for the 2016 Art Expo Nelson.

p1170910Filled with over 2000 paintings, ceramics, sculptures, jewellery, glass work, photographs and multimedia pieces, the stadium is bursting with colour.

The three-day show promotes artworks from more than 150 local and New Zealand artists but pieces are being sold fast.

Hope artist Greta Greenwood says two of her acrylic paintings had been sold before she even arrived this morning.

“It’s such a great day and it’s quite special having the interaction with people that have followed or are interested in your work.”

The expo runs through to Monday, at the Saxton Stadium and tickets are available at the door.
