At Barrie Central, we hosted an Arts Night near the end of the year to celebrate our artistic successes.
As an experiment to move away from the ‘traditional’ gallery setup and to boost attendance, we decided to create a more interactive atmosphere. Our Art Contest with the theme in 2010 was ‘Emotion’, had over 20 entries. Visitors to the gallery could browse the works and vote on their favourites. Art Students could set up their own booths with their Art works and manned them during the night to answer questions and promote their work.
