Welcome to the Christmas/New Year edition of the Herts Visual Arts Newsletter. The last for 2016 and my final newletter, as I stand down, and handover to Creative Genie Kelly Pedlar, who will resume a first of the month publication date from February 2017. I have thoroughly enjoyed my eight years with HVA (seven of which organising Herts Open Studios) and have been delighted to see the improvements every year including email alerts to members with opportunties and events, and culminating this year in the delivery of our new website and the capability of enhanced gallery space (now 15 images free of charge) for members. Impressive achievements, when you consider that the committee is predominantly comprised of volunteers. So if your New Year resolution is to volunteer...
... please contact either Mel Hilbrown firstname.lastname@example.org, Hillary Taylor email@example.com, Lucinda Rowe firstname.lastname@example.org or Kelly Pedlar email@example.com to arrange an informal chat about how to get involved.
Wishing everyone a Happy Christmas & New Year, and a prosperous 2017 !
