2013-06-14 00:00

ALTHOUGH figures were down on last year’s Nashua Art in the Park, this year’s event in Alexandra Park, Pietermaritzburg, had sales totalling R1,47 million.

This year’s top-selling artists were Ingrid and Leon Fouché.

Buhle Ndwandwe, events manager at Msunduzi Pietermaritzburg Tourism, said not even two days of wind kept art lovers away.

“Nashua Art in the Park has matured into one of the country’s premier selling exhibits and we, as Msunduzi Pietermaritzburg Tourism, are confident that the event will grow even stronger in the years to come.

“This year we had six development artists from the KwaZulu-Natal Department of Arts and Culture and they all claim that the experience they gained at the event is phenomenal and [they] cannot wait to come back next year. Being among some of South Africa’s top artists was a dream come true for them.”
