A great turn out of people came through the doors to view art at the Iconic Art Space (Marton), stop #72 on the Artists Open Studios (Whanganui) trail.
Artist in residence, Ali Hale Tilley (pictured above), spoke with over 70 people, explaining her works and showing visitors around her Art Apace. 5 pieces of art have already been sold so if you are thinking of investing in art, now is the time.
Local artist Daniel Williamson (pictured below) also exhibited his sharpie sci-fi sketches and dropped in to make an appearance.
Lots of amazing locals gave their time, relaxed and played games, adding to vibrancy of the day.
Participating artists from around Marton added to the festivity of the weekend, which continues next weekend as well.
