Submissions are now open for the Space2 gallery, Watford Museum 2018. 
Located just down from the high street station, Watford Museum is housed in the old Benskins Manor and has a dedicated public art gallery. A space inside the old building has been updated, with help from the Friends of Watford Museum, to a light, modern space to act as a gallery. 

We are looking for 5 artists to exhibit over 2018.

Calling All Artists – an opportunity to exhibit with the Harpenden Arts Club

The exhibition runs from 9th November (Private View Party) to 12th November and is held in the Southdown Hall in the Harpenden Public Halls. If you would like to join the Harpenden Arts Club and exhibit your work with them, the deadline for submission of exhibition entry forms is 21 October 2017.


Last year, 55 artists showcased their work in the annual art exhibition and 50 artworks were sold along with hundreds of artists’ greetings cards! A strong committee is working tirelessly to coordinate and publicise this year’s Harpenden Arts Club Exhibition, which promises to be equally as exciting and successful as last year, if not better!
