Appledore Arts Festival!!!!

“The Appledore Visual Arts Festival demonstrates that high quality art in the more rural parts of our region can be just as exciting – and important – as those in metropolitan centres “.

The 2009
Appledore Visual Arts Festival


The theme for the 2009 Appledore Visual Arts Festival
(Thursday May 28th – Sunday May 31st) is ‘Fire & Fury’.

The Festival will be a contemporary celebration of the inspiration and potential for artistic renewal and transformation that fire in its full fury can offer. For centuries fire has been an integral part of the creative process, from our earliest history it has been used to create and inspire many crafts, including; glass, ceramics and metalwork.
