Herts Visual Arts is the voluntary organisation for everyone in the visual and applied arts in Hertfordshire.

Why join Herts Visual Arts?
Many of our Artists join simply to take part in Open Studios each year - but you get much more than that for your membership!

* Entry to Open Studios is not included in the cost of membership

A monthly members newsletter is sent to all members showcasing the latest Opportunities and events we are hosting.

We've invested in our website for the future, so it's now social media friendly, and viewable on all devices.

Herts Visual Arts Gallery page with space for 15 images FREE, social media links, artists bio, links to your own website.

Your Gallery page, and our website mean that whether you have your own website or not - you'll be very easy to find on the internet, with most of our Artists appearing towards the top of Google searches via www.hvaf.org.uk

Be included in our incredible database of Herts Artists!
Network, collaborate, be part of our thriving Creative community!
