Trevor Bayly and the Mercury Bay Art Escape

Mercury Bay Art Escape is held over consecutive weekends of 2/3 March and 9/10 March 2013. 52 artists from Otama to Tairua on the eastern Coromandel coast open up their studios to the public. This year I am part of this event and will have my studio at 13 Wigmore Crescent Hahei open to the public over both weekend. I have over 40 artworks exhibited for sale in my studio. The works range from water colour landscapes of the Hahei area to impressionist photos taken in the area and abstract paintings and drawings.

I highly recommend this event. It is very enjoyable visiting lots of artists studios. MBAE has become one of the major events for the eastern Coromandels.

If you happen to be in the area or are planning to be, please call in and see us, view the art work and stop for a coffee and muffins.

Kind regards
