Welcome to our October newsletter which includes a feature on our exhibition at Harpenden Public Halls.  We are always on the lookout for suitable venues across the county - do contact us with ideas. 

Welcome to the following new members who have joined Herts Visual Arts during September: Pete Greening, Jessica Geen and Steve Wright.

Although Open Studios finished at the weekend work continues all year round.  For those who took part remember to return your questionnaires. I have a few days off before analysing them (deadline for return 17 October). At the next committee meeting we'll be discussing any improvements we need to make to the project and during November we'll start the process of the call for artists for 2013. And so we come full circle!

With the increase in popularity of printmaking we are delighted that there is some interest in forming a new HVA Art Group.  We have a volunteer to host the first meeting .... if you would like to get involved please email

I'm looking forward to meeting up with members at our meeting on 31 October at the lecture "Looking Good: Unlock Your Sociable Side" - do register if you plan to attend. What a great opportunity to discuss the topic with like minded people and go away with an action plan!
