Along with the usual round up of opportunities and events in this edition read more about the creative output from the Artist in Residence programme at Luton Hoo Walled Garden .....  a fresh approach to the "Big Draw"  at Watford Palace Theatre .... and our HVA Exhibition at Bishops Stortford College in Spring 2012 ...

Hazel Godfrey and Linda Gifford winners of the tickets offered in the free prize draw in the September 2011 newsletter, have now visited the Moore at Hatfield Exhibition which closed on the 30 September.

Welcome to Emma de Souza (Watford) who joined Herts Visual Arts last month.

With Herts Open Studios coming to a close this weekend, our efforts are now focussed on funding for 2012.  So if you know of any company that might be interested in sponsorship please do get in touch with me.

Work is currently underway to change the way we communicate the many OPPORTUNITIES we regularly bring to your attention, and you will need to login to the website to view them.  If you are still unsure of your Username and Password, or are having difficulty logging in please email our support volunteer, Jude Fung, who will be able to assist.

Finally, make sure you have Saturday 3rd December in your diary - the date of our Art and Gift Fair.  An excellent opportunity to purchase quality hand created Art & Gifts for Christmas (and in my case, also family birthdays in January !)
