Friday lunch orders menu.
Event: Waikato Art Expo - In the Frame
Dates: 23.3.24 from 10 am to 4 pm and 24.3.24 from 10 am to 3 pm
Where: St John's College Hamilton, the Old Gym
What is it?
This is the inaugural art extravaganza, organised by the St John's College Foundation and showcasing works from emerging and established artists from across the North Island. 
This is a fundraiser for St John's College, Hamilton in support of the long-term plan for the College to have its own chapel once more. All art is for sale and has been carefully curated, with well over 50 artists showcasing a range of ceramics, painting, photography and sculpture.
We do hope to attract a good crowd so that this becomes a valuable platform for artists and a regular community event in the region's calendar. And, of course, we hope visitors may find a piece of art they'll fall in love with.
