Forthcoming HVA Events

We are actively looking for new exhibition venues - do let us know if you can make a recommendation.

Here is a summary of activities we are involved in this summer, together with the Agenda for our AGM, and the autumn lecture series that our programme secretary Caroline Lumb has arranged for us.

HVA members do visit our stands at Living Crafts (Tent No. 30) and The Herts Show (Made in Herts Tent) and introduce yourselves to the volunteers on duty - they will be delighted to meet you. 

The Harefield Hospital Exhibition date has been extended to 20 May.

See the work of participants in the Welwyn & Hatfield area at the Herts Open Studios Preview at The New Maynard Gallery. Members we look forward to seeing you at the Private View on the 22nd - details will be loaded to the Opportunities Page.

If you have your artwork ready for the Secret Postcard Sale do sent it in promptly, as we will need some items to be photographed for publicity purposes ahead of this September Exhibition.

7 May 7.30 pm  at the University of Hertfordshire
