On the show today we heard from Lucky Dolan of the Herts Visual Arts Forum. Lucky was telling us about the Hertforshire Open Studios programme that will be running from the 12th September to the 4th October. Open Studios is a programme where by visual artists open up their personal studio spaces for the public to see and create special artist run exhibitions throughout the county. In total, 180 artists are participating. You can ask questions, ask about techniques and see work that might not be shown in a formal exhibition.
There seems to be a plethera of artistic talent in Hertforshire but a serious lacking of places for art to be seen - this makes the Open Studios programme really important both for the artist and the community.
For more information, you can check out the catologue at the
St Albans Tourist Information Centre, in libraries, art shops and at the Secret Garden Cafe in George Street, St Albans. You can also get the catologue and more information from www.hvaf.org.uk.
Have a great weekend!
