Military Art Gallery Reception

Description: In recognition of our local military and as a compliment to Prince Harry's Invictus Games & Canada's 150th, The Steel Spirit Military Art Gallery at Barrie City Hall throughout September and October showcased artwork done entirely by military and ex-military personnel. The Military Art displayed a range of positive reflections as well as adversity from 10 plus military artists. The artwork aimed to bring attention to military service in Canada and showcased the artist's support of their military colleagues. In addition, the artwork was also used to educate the public about military-acquired Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and operational stress injuries. During the reception, guests were invited to take a self-guided tour of the artwork followed by speeches by the artists about their backgrounds and experiences. Thank you to Barbara Brown for organizing this wonderful art exhibit and to all of the artists who submitted artwork.
