In 2016 HACS is offering it’s members  the chance to share their work and meet art lovers, buyers and the curiously creative during h.Art Week.  The venue is as old if not older than HACS itself! Sitting on land which was next to Cider and Perry Makers W M Evans who moved to Widemarsh Common in 1891. All the pectin produced in Great Britain from 1917 to 1950 was made in Hereford by W M Evans.

Perhaps that pectin went into the jam the cricketers would have used at the teas for cricketers between 1829 to 1937, including matches between Hereford and an All England Eleven, that were held at the Widemarsh Common Cricket Ground. Scones and jams on a sunny day with the thack of leather on willow – aah memories.

So if you are an art lover or a cricket historian or Heritage Open Days visitor, you’ll have the opportunity to see inside the building during h.Art.

HACS would like to thank Hereford Council and Halo Leisure Centre for their support in making this venue available to the Society.

It’s going to be the artiest place to be in July – The Courtyard in Hereford. Members of HACS (as Herefordshire Art & Craft Society) is affectionately known, will be exhibiting their work. The Gallery on the second floor will show work on the theme of “Figuration into Abstraction” as some HACS members show the results of some workshops which they’ve been doing with Lois Hopwood at the Hereford College of Art studios to expand their art practice. In the canyons will be recent work from other members of HACS.

HACS’ constitution requires the committee to arrange an annual exhibition of members work. The committee is made up of members who have volunteered some of their time to curate and publicise exhibitions, arrange event visits, and undertake the Society’s administrative needs.
