Appetite For Art

2016 saw the first annual Appetite for Art in Nelson, a fundraiser pairing art and food in a gallery-style setting.

Appetite for Art showcases Nelson artists and local restaurants and wineries. The pairing of art and food allow for a greater appreciation of both methods of creative expression. With pieces of original art on display, and unique local food and wine vendors, the gallery style show is a feast for both the eyes and the palate. The event is designed to raise money, through ticket sales, for the Nelson and District Art Council in support of their annual ArtWalk event. All artwork on display was available for purchase.
