April 2016


Welcome to the April 2016 edition. With an early Easter this year we have received requests to extend the deadline for Herts Open Studios... so you now have until 8 April to apply.  A varied selection of opportunities this month including a Venice-Cardiff Residency, a Public Arts Project Co-Ordinator Vacancy, six weekly exhibition slots at a St. Albans Venue and a Film & Animation Competition !

Herts Open Studios 2016

This year’s Open Studios is shaping up to be another exciting event with some new artists and some we haven’t seen for a few years joining our regular participants. We will be accepting entries until Friday 8 April so if you haven’t yet made up your mind there is still time.  Please talk to me or your Area Co-ordinator if you have any questions or would like more information on how it all works.

Exhibitions & Events

Photography, site specific installation featuring polar-fleece sculptures, textiles, painting, ceramics .. and more, so much more across Hertfordshire this month !
