Welcome to the May edition of the Herts Visual Arts Newsletter. It's a busy time as the Open Studios project gains momentum, in addition we are preparing for our tent at the Living Crafts Exhibition, Hatfield House, 10-13 May and also the AGM, 6 June 2012.

Welcome to the following new members who joined HVA in April:

Justine Thorpe, Anna Fairchild, Sandra Armitage, Jenni Cator, Katy Leigh, Gillian Mackenna, Katie Tant, Hayley Gerry, Paul Fennell, Mike Rollins, Violetta Grubska, Julie Wills and Janet Gardner.

We are currently looking for additional newsletter writers to cover the holiday period. If you are interested in the role on a regular or ad hoc basis please do get in touch.

Plans are underway for an HVA Exhibition at Harpenden Public Halls 1-2 September 2012 which should be a good platform to launch Herts Opens Studios.  ALL MEMBERS will be eligible to enter work - further details to follow shortly...

In the meantime, I hope you enjoy the latest edition of our newsletter.
