Welcome to the Summer 2014 edition of the HVA Newsletter. We hope that many of you will be able to join us to continue the various discussions raised at the AGM last month at our members meeting on the 31st July.
On a cautionary note - members have reported a spike in the rate of both email and telephone scams to artists this month - so please be vigilant ! Your attention is drawn to the more recent ones.
I returned from holiday to find a selection of lovely postcards for the Secret Art Sale remember, you have until the end of August and there is no limit to the number of entries you can submit.
As our volunteers actively promote Herts Open Studios over the summer, ALL members are encouraged to do the same. Jo Atherton's article this month gives us all we need to know about the power of the #hashtag, so encourage your friends and colleagues to tweet about #HertsOpenStudios, and Share, Like & Comment on Facebook.
We are delighted to welcome new members Maureen Masterman, Brian Kelly, Janice Randall, Sharan Cohen, Paula Osborne, Ruby Lewis and Eva Edery who all joined HVA during June.
