Herefordshire Art & Craft Society welcomes everyone who loves or practises the arts in Herefordshire. We are very pleased to have Sir Roy Strong as the society’s President and Professor Allen Fisher as our Patron. 
We normally meet each month at  The Courtyard, Edgar Street, Hereford, HR4 9JR to talk about our up-coming events and exhibitions and host a short talk or demonstration. Those meetings are currently suspended because of the coronavirus epidemic

We arrange at least one exhibition of our own each year and also take part in the Herefordshire Art Weeks (h.Art) in September and December. (Herefordshire Art Week 2020 has been cancelled.)

We were preparing to mount an exhibition at The Courtyard beginning in November 2020 with the theme of Light, Colour, Shape, but it is now unlikely to take place.

Instead we are planning an online exhibition beginning on 1st October – more details soon.


About HACS

Herefordshire Art & Craft Society was founded in 1922 so we are approaching our Centenary.  Suitable celebrations are being planned!
Our members work in a huge variety of media, both 2D and 3D, and include creatives who choose to call themselves beginners, dabblers, hobbyists, amateurs, semi-professionals, professionals and art historians!
We arrange occasional talks, workshops and study days for our members, and have lively discussions in our monthly meetings.
Exhibitions are a mix of open and selective submission depending upon the venue and the exhibition theme.
We have a very active Facebook page and an Instagram account, both of which show our members’work and share photos, news, and information.  Members can also show their work in the Members Gallery on this web site.


We had a busy year in 2019 with an exhibition at The Courtyard in Hereford, the city’s very successful arts centre, another at the Black and White House Museum, and exhibitions during Herefordshire’s Art Week (h.Art).

Unfortunately the h.Art event in 2020 was cancelled because the coronavirus epidemic made the arrangements too uncertain.

Our first Online Exhibition will open on 1st October 2020. More details will be available soon. Other exhibitions and events are being planned.  We are always looking for new and interesting venues.
