Call for Artists!

Call For Artists! Registration runs from March 1st 2017 – May 2nd 2017.

Registration is now open and all professional and amateur visual artists, craft makers and designers living or working in Hertfordshire are invited to join HVA and take part in this popular event. Open the doors of your studio to the public or join with other artists and exhibit in a gallery or hall near you.

Better value than ever!

This year we have reduced the price for individual artists by 10% and introduced a pricing structure to make Open Studios more cost effective for groups of artists exhibiting together at a single venue. The cost of participating is now £90 for an individual artist and for the lead artist in a group with subsequent additional artists at that venue £40. All participating artists must be members of HVA.

The entry fee covers inclusion in on-line and printed publicity materials, promotional materials and Open Studios signage for your own use, and a full entry in the OS on-line catalogue. HVA will also run a publicity campaign in the local press and on social media.

As an additional incentive in April 2017 HVA will be hosting an “Open Studios Teaser” exhibition at the New Maynard Gallery in Welwyn Garden City. This will be open to all HVA members but places are limited and priority will be given to those members who have already signed up for Open Studios 2017.

Hertfordshire Artists, we need you! Register now to secure your place!
