Halifax Nocturne

Nocturne this year provided the opportunity for the general public not only to see some totally amazing artwork created and being created but to be part of some of the being created stuff. 

As part of this years event The Art Sales and Rental Gallery proposed to hang a large canvas and allow some painting and drawing to go on in the gallery. The idea saw twelve artists each working the canvas for a short period.

The gallery has always participated in the Nocturne event with a show and open doors but this years participatory component was a hands down success. Most important and interesting for me was the inclusion of audience members in the creation of the work. Some adults expressed desire but it was the children who stepped up and engaged the brush. I think more than a few hearts for arts were won.

The final state was won by random draw from gallery visitors.
