The Hawker Art Exhibition
Committee has held its AGM in early March 2009 at which the future of the
Exhibition was given a serious review.
As a result of this meeting
it was decided to go into
recess for 2009.
The prime reasons for
coming to this decision were:
The lack of community
volunteers who are committed to lead and manage the Exhibition
The deteriorating economy
and the uncertainties of the future
The numerous other
exhibitions being held at the time, both locally and regionally, all
competing for a shrinking market.
At its next AGM in early
March 2010 the decision was taken to go into recess until further notice.
We would like once again to
thank all our artists and thousands of visitors who have helped to make the
Hawker Art Exhibition such a successful and well-liked event from 1982
Mart, together with the Hawker Quilters, continues annually at the Hawker
Institute late September into early October.
