July 12th -14th was spent at the Nelson Art Expo which is an annual exhibition of artists from all over New Zealand. It was a well organized event at the Trafalgar Centre in Nelson with awards, evening events and free seminars for artists and dealers. It is the South Island's premier Art Expo with over 120 artists specializing in paintings, sculpture, glass and jewellery. With all the other galleries and restaurants in the region it was an enjoyable way to spend a weekend.
