High School Art Show at Blyth Festival

STUDENT SHOW 2012 OPENS SEASON AT BLYTH ART GALLERY

The Student Show 2012 will open the new season of exhibitions at the Blyth Festival Art Gallery. Dozens of works by Huron and Perth County high school art students will fill the Bainton Gallery for this show, which begins with the opening reception at 6 pm, Thursday, May 3rd and runs until May 17th.

This annual show is an exciting venue for celebrating student creativity and features the best works of students in Grades 9 – 12. The Avon Maitland District School Board includes schools from Wingham, Clinton, Goderich, Exeter, Mitchell, St. Mary’s, Stratford and Listowel. The Huron Perth Catholic School Board is represented by works from Clinton and Stratford. Many different artistic techniques will be featured including mixed media, sculpture, photography, drawing, painting, printmaking, and digital illustration.

The public can expect to see exciting art, full of youthful energy and off-the-wall ideas. The Student Show 2012 is presented by the Blyth Festival Art Gallery and sponsored by Goderich Print Shop. It officially opens in the Bainton Gallery (next to the Blyth Festival Box Office) on Thursday, May 3rd at 6 P.M. 

Three Awards of Excellence will be presented to outstanding students. The winners will receive a cash prize of $100 and their art works will be displayed at the Blyth Festival for the duration of the 2012 theatre season. This year, the Huron Arts and Heritage Network’s individual artist award was won by Greg Sherwood, the Student Show’s curator. HAHN’s chair, Deb Sholdice, will present the award to Greg at the opening. 

All teachers, students, parents and members of the public are invited to the reception to join in the festivities and help us open this exhibition. Refreshments will be served.

The show will be available for viewing during the Blyth Festival box office hours and continues until May 17th.

Seaforth Recognized with Prestigious Award

Seaforth Recognized with Prestigious Award from Ontario BIA Association

It was Margaret Mead who penned the famous quote about the inevitable ability of thoughtful, committed citizens to implement change.

 

Never was this more evident than on Seaforth’s Main Street.  A collaboration between Peter Klaver, the late Debby Somerville, the Municipality of Huron East and its Municipal Heritage Committee has resulted in a dramatic facelift to the town’s business district and now notable recognition by the Ontario Business Improvement Area Association (OBIAA) at its recent National Conference in Thunder Bay.

 

“Dressing for Success”—a major renovation project in Seaforth—involved the restoration of six properties within the town’s Business Improvement Area during 2011.  Klaver, a BIA Member and Past Board Chair, and BIA Member Somerville, spearheaded the major renovations undertaken at the following heritage properties:

  •  Timber’s Outfitters
  •  Decadence in the Country
  •  Etue Insurance and Financial
  •  Tulips Dental Centre
  •  Sally’s Closet Too!
  •  The Commercial Hotel

Nominees for an OBIAA award under the “Bricks and Mortar” category had to meet stringent criteria. 


Innovation:  a unique approach to a BIA management/development challenge

Replication:  a solution or idea that could be modified and utilized by other BIA’s

Representation:  inclusive, partnerships, community involvement

Outcome:  significant and measurable impact; objectives reached

 

Given the improved aesthetics and property values on Seaforth’s Main Street, the ensuing economic development, and low commercial vacancy rate, it is evident that “Dressing for Success” achieved its goals—and OBIAA rewarded this accomplishment.

 

As John Kiru, President of OBIAA and executive Director of the Toronto Area BIA, noted “recognition goes a long way in encouraging BIA’s across the province to continue with their stellar work in improving the economic and social wellbeing of their communities.”

 

The Ontario BIA Association recognizes the best in revitalization and management, and through its awards celebrates the most successful, innovative efforts in Ontario BIA development.

“Seaforth has seen challenging times over the past few years,” says Jan Hawley, Huron East’s Economic Development Officer, “yet despite the downturn in the economy, its business district has remained vibrant, positioning itself well within the region.  And the efforts of Pete and Debby played a big part in that.”

 

Indeed, the vision and work of Peter Klaver and Debby Somerville, supported by the Municipality and Heritage Committee, has resulted in a win-win-win: for the town, for its BIA, and for its Main Street businesses.
