Welcome to the October 2014 edition of the Herts Visual Arts Newsletter.  Herts Open Studios came to a close last weekend.  Our thanks go to not only all the participating artists but also to the wider team involved with the organisation and promotion of this fantastic event. 

Congratulations to all of the nominees for this year's Heart of Flame Awards.  The ceremony takes place at 7.30 on Saturday 4 October 2014 at the Weston Auditorium, University of Hertfordshire, Hatfield.  Tickets are available at £5.00 from The Weston Auditorium box office (10am – 4pm) on 01707 281127 or

Several members volunteered to assist with the installation of poppies at the Tower of London.  Read June Faulkner's article about the impact of her experience there.

Finally, it is never too early to think about participating in Herts Open Studios.  Plans are already underway to celebrate what will be its 25th anniversary. If you would like to be part of the project team for 2015 please do get in touch.
