It’s that time of year when perhaps we’re all getting ready for the winter ahead and start to look at next year, and that’s exactly what’s going on at Herts Visual Arts. Your Organising Group (an amazing band of enthusiastic volunteers, who, in my opinion, can’t be thanked enough for the time and energy they devote to art in Herts) met up in October and will be meeting again in November to review 2017 and plan an even better 2018.

Our end-of-year December Newsletter will be jam-packed with a 2017 review and exciting plans for next year. With plenty of opportunities for everyone to flourish in our growing, vibrant art community, 2018 will be an amazing year for members.

In the meantime, if you haven’t already done so, can I ask each and every one of you to take a moment and complete one of our Open Studios surveys.

Prize Draw deadlines extended! We’ve had such great feedback so far that we’ve extended the closing deadlines to Tuesday 7th November to give everyone a last chance to make their voice heard.  Every member has an invaluable opinion that can help shape how Herts Visual Arts works for all of us.

Please have your say: there is one prize draw for members who did not take part in Open Studios (whenever you joined/renewed your membership) and another one for members who did take part. 

Members Prize Draw #1

Remember, one lucky person, drawn at random, will have their 2018 Membership fee refunded

For all members who did not take part in Open Studios 2017 … this is your chance to help us understand how to shape Herts Visual Arts to suit you. Quick, before 7th November!

Members Prize Draw #2

One lucky person, drawn at random, will have their 2018 Open Studios fee (not membership fee) refunded.

For members who did take part in Open Studios 2017 … we’d love feedback to make 2018 even better. Quick, before 7th November!

OS Visitors Prize Draw

Our 3rd prize draw is of everyone who visited one or more Open Studio venues in 2017 and one lucky person, drawn at random, will win a £100 voucher for Artscape.
