Herts Visual Arts are again staging their Big Art Showcase at the New Maynard Gallery to mark the start of their 2019 arts programme.  As always, our Showcase will include a rich variety of 2D and 3D art produces by talented artists from around Hertfordshire.  

Artists and visitors alike will also be warmly welcomed by gallery trustees and volunteers for a packed and lively Private View evening on Thursday 11th April 2019. A huge range of techniques and subject matter across the Showcase includes paintings, prints, textiles, glass, drawing, ceramics, jewellery and much more filling the walls and cabinets with a wealth of colour and style. 

Running from 12th April until 1st June, the exhibition is open for visitors throughout the week.  Almost all work is for sale. Herts Visual Arts members are all artists who live or work in Hertfordshire.

“I would again like to personally like to thank the New Maynard Gallery Trustees and volunteers for welcoming Herts Visual Arts into this amazing space” said Herts Visual Arts Chair, Hillary Taylor, who continued “We know our Big Art Showcase will be set out with professionalism, care and skill, showing our members work off to its very best.”
