The Annual Art Expo 2012 is at Sydney from 21st – 23rd September in the Hordern Pavilion, part of the Moore Park complex. Its powerful messages include ‘Art For Art’s Sake, and Art is for Everyone. This event has been created specifically to bring all aspects of the visual arts together, for the promotion, awareness and encouragement of art lovers and artists alike. Whilst art fairs are predominantly aimed at the initiated art buyers and artists, the format of the Sydney Art Expo also caters to the uninitiated in the hope of demystifying the world of art and creating a new wave of artists, collectors and art enthusiasts.I
New Zealand born Amelia Batchelor (Mealie) is one of the exhibitors this year. She is keeping her creative passion and options alive. Mealie has been a practicing visual artist for more than 20 years and set up her own art house studio space in the latter half of 2010 high on a hill in Murwillumbah. Since then she has gone from strength to strength.
She is now an integral part of the Colour Your Life Team and PA to their TV Production of the series “Put Some Colour in Your Life”, which is televised nationally on 4ME. You can watch one of the shows featuring Mealie on You Tube.
