Make a donation to Herts Visual Arts
Herts Visual Arts is a not-for-profit organisation for promoting the work of Hertfordshire artists. A miniscule number of artists become very rich from their art, only a very small proportion can earn their living solely from it – based on the hours it takes to create, the cost of materials and ancillary costs, most of the work you will see generate less than the minimum wage, so they represent incredibly good value. It is a big commitment for artists to pay to enter Open Studios, but as well as an opportunity to sell, the artists appreciate the potential to talk to their audience.
Even if you do not buy anything, if you have enjoyed your visits, you can show your appreciation by making a donation which, with the withdrawal of grant funding, will help HVA continue the programme on the same scale for future years.
