The internet has been down for five days which is annoying but in some ways a bit of a relief. I got so much done!! I am part of the committee that organises an annual open studio weekend which runs for two weekends Feb 26,27,28th and Mar. 5,6,7th. It's focus is on selling art and we have 39 artists taking part this year, all from our local area. The Coromandel has a great history in the arts (comparitively NZ wise) with a lot of alternative people (artists, musicians, craftspeople) moving here out of the cities in the 1960s.
It's hard times selling art but hopefully we can encourage people to shake the moths out of their wallets.
