The 10-day festival featured a range of literary and comedy events alongside public art events.

MsRohrsheim said she received great feedback about the 21stArt is…festival.

“It’s been really good, we’ve had some great numbers and all the events have been very successful,” she said.

“The main response I’ve had is that there’s something for everyone.

“It’s very exciting to see all the plans, organisation and hard work come to life.”

MsRohrsheim singled out Art Play Sunday, Tchingal and the Grey Matter: Lifting the Lid walking tour as particularly successful events for the festival.

“Art Play Sunday was really exciting, it was great to be able to utilise all that space at Horsham Town Hall, with the art gallery there,” she said.

“It was great for parents.

“There was so many activities the children really didn’t have time to get sick of it, and then after there was a performance for everyone to watch.

“Across the board tickets did well, with Art Play a third or tickets were walk ins on the day, which is unheard of at the town hall.”

On Friday MsRohrsheim said they were expecting about 250 people to attend each performance of Tchingal during the weekend run.

“I’ve been to rehearsals and it looks amazing,” she said.

The event saw art come off the gallery walls and into the street, withbuskers, projection events and Tasmanian devils spotted throughout Horsham CBD.

She said the festival committee were already looking at next year’s events.

The 2016Art is…festival was the final of the three-year Layers of Time theme.

Next year the theme changes toArt is…a footprint.

“We’re still debating the sub-themes for each of the three years,” she said.

“It’ll be about environmental impacts, but not just that, it could be about the footprint art leaves or even a literal footprint.

“It’s open to artists to take it in any direction.”

MsRohrsheim thanked volunteers and the community for supporting the 2016 event.

“I’m really thankful for the volunteers or committee members,” she said.

“It’s all their hard work that had made this year, the 21stevent, so successful.”
