Welcome to the summer edition of our newsletter.

This is the time of the year when our volunteers are busy getting the final touches to their exhibitions together, so we resume a first of the month publication date from 1 September, as usual.

Welcome to the following new members who joined HVA in June : Colin Smith, Jane Visick, Laura Dunmow, Helen Cross, Angela Rose, Ruth Goodman and Amy Pettingill and our thanks go to Caroline Lumb who joins the Organising Group Commitee as Programme Secretary.

HVA is run by artists for artists.  If you have an article to contribute, an event your wish to promote, an interesting commission or some good news that you wish to share .. do let us know.

Plans are taking shape for the exhibition at Harpenden Public Halls on 1 and 2 September. We hope to be promoting a wide selection of Herts Visual Arts Members work at this event. Featuring wall hung art & sculpture in the main hall and table top sale of jewellery and smaller ceramic and textile items in the adjacent hall, it promises to be an exciting event. The deadline for applications for both the main hall and adjacent hall is 14 August .. so please remember to send off  your forms before you go on holiday !!
