We are delighted to offer an excellent opportunity to 12 HVAF members!

Wenta is an active and vibrant business centre, in Potters Bar that caters and supports small and start up businesses. Having just recently decorated their main corridor, where there is consistent footfall of staff and visitors to each of the indivual companies, this opportunity has been presented to HVAF as a result of the success of their Stevenages’ site, - so once again Wenta are very keen to support local artists and would be delighted to see HVAF work hanging on their walls.

Courtyard Arts - Artist in Residence 

17th October – 12th November 2019

We are delighted to invite artists’ applications for our annual 4-week residency at Courtyard Arts.

For the duration of the residency the successful artist will take over our gallery space, providing a unique opportunity to develop and share her/his practice.

The Artist in Residence programme is an established highlight of our gallery calendar. It provides a space for artists to engage in dialogue with an audience at the same time as exploring their ideas and creating work.
