My year’s residency with Herefordshire Wildlife Trust in this special ancient broadleaf wood is flying by, and now the canopy has closed over to create a world of low light and greens of every hue. I am keeping a blog and will be showing a selection of outdoor and studio works at h.Art (at Venue West PS The Print Shed, Madley from 10 – 18 September 2016.).

We’ll be discussing h.Art which starts on the Saturday 10th to make sure everyone has their work ready to bring and hang and has agreed their stewarding times.

Time-permitting we will discuss our experiences of getting work framed for exhibitions including swapping information about experiences with local framers.

Non-members are welcome to come along and see what HACS is about. We had two people join at our last meeting.

If anyone would like a taste of being on the committee or has additional time to offer please do come along to the Committee Meeting at 10 a.m. which is held on one of the sets of chairs on the landings (bring a drink up with you).
