Whether you are looking for the perfect Mother’s Day present or just wanting to browse wonderful local creations, the Artisan Twilight Markets at Bundaberg Regional Art Gallery are for you.
With a number of market stalls popping up in the Bundaberg Regional Art Gallery Park on Friday 29 April, the gallery will also be opening its doors to provide the opportunity for the community to enjoy the exhibitions on display.
With live music from local musicians Amy Daniel and Stella Hutchins, the evening invites everyone to enjoy the laid-back vibe of the gallery.
Council’s Arts, Culture and Events portfolio spokesperson Cr John Learmonth said the Twilight Markets provided a great opportunity for the community to support local businesses while enjoying a night out.
“Showcasing some of the best artisans from our region, these markets are filled with hand-crafted products that exemplify why we should ‘buy local',” Cr Learmonth said.
“These are great events, hosted by the Galleries team, that allow local businesses to connect with our community, while also providing an out of hours chance to view the exhibitions at BRAG.”
Local stallholder Kate Neal of Kate Victoria Creative said the opportunity to attend the Artisan Twilight Markets was fantastic for Bundaberg artists and business owners.
“These events at the gallery provide such amazing support for local artists and creators as they create a space for local artisans to put their work on display and give the community a place to come and show their support,” Kate said.
“It’s such a great vibe when you’re surrounded by people doing what they love and showcasing their work.
“I love being able to meet people face to face, have a chat and thank them for their support and it is a great place to form connections not only with customers but with other small business owners.”
