HVA’s talented creatives range from painters working in many different styles and media, through to artists creating in textiles, ceramics, jewellery, glass, sculpture, printmaking, and much more. With over 300 members, there’s original artwork to suit everyone. Take a look to see what catches your eye.

HVA's programme of events shares our members' creativity with the public throughout the year. 

Our highlight is Herts Open Studios when artists open their doors to visitors or share in pop-up galleries. You can see artists at work and find out about their creative process.

Our glossy quarterly magazine is for the general public and our members to enjoy.

HVA is grateful to our advertisers for their support in making this possible.
