Open Studios

Registration for Herts Open Studios 2020 is currently suspended and will re-open once we can announce details of our Virtual Open Studios. At that point, all the current registration guidelines will be updated

For Herts Visual Arts, the health and welfare of our members, their families and the wider community is our highest priority. 

We continue to monitor the developing news and follow direction from the government, reviewing and assessing our operations for 2020. Although final decisions have not yet been made, we will update you as soon as we can.

Looking into the future, new exhibitions and workshops listings are live on our web site.

We are working hard to make sure Herts Visual Arts remains a great organisation for artists in Herts and more than anything else, we want to ensure your safety.

We had just started distributing our Call for Artists leaflets alongside on-line promotions, when our flagship event come into the headlights too.  As with the Big Art Fair, we have decided that Open Studios cannot go ahead in the same format as previous year. We cannot be sure that studio visits will be welcomed by artists or visitors. All the resulting change and uncertainty means that we are deep in discussion to offer a virtual event a little later in the year.
