Hertford Art Society 19th Members’ Show
28th - 30th October 2016
Following the very successful and much admired launch of the Members' Show in its new venue at Cowbridge Hall last year, we are back there again this year. Once again we are previewing the show on the Thursday evening, 27th October from 6.00-8.30pm at our Friends of HAS evening, where artists, family, friends, fans and purchasers can meet over a glass of wine to view the show and perhaps make a purchase.
The members' show runs from 10.00am-6.00pm on Friday and Saturday, 28th and 29th October and from 10.00am-4.00pm on Sunday, 30th October. We invite you to drop in for tea or coffee and cake and to enjoy the artwork and the artists' greetings cards, all available for sale.
Review of Members’ Show - 30th October - 1st November 2015
This year, for the first time, Hertford Art Society members held their annual show at their regular meeting place - Cowbridge Hall, Cowbrige, Hertford, SG12 1PG. In its new premises the Members’ Show took on a whole new look – lots of light flooding in, room for double the number of pictures of previous shows, and a layout that beckoned you around each set of panels like a garden full of nooks and crannies. This larger venue meant that were able to exhibit more and larger artwork and 68 artists contributed 230 framed and 3D pieces as well as browsers full of unframed work and an exciting selection of greetings cards.
Strewards offered coffee, tea and cakes and the result was a totally relaxed and friendly show enjoyed by a good stream of visitors each day. If they didn’t feel like buying a picture there was always a good selection of colourful cards to browse through.
Among the other exhibits, the following really stood out:
35 pictures were sold - 27 framed and 8 unframed together with many greetings cards - all of which were respresentations of Members’ artwork or original images. This compares with last year’s figures of 22 sold (8 framed and 13 unframed). So we did a lot better in the new premises. This successful Show was made possible by the efforts of many Members and thanks go to all who helped put up and take down the show, baked cakes, dispensed refreshments or acted as stewards.
