h.Art Week 2016 will take place from 10th to 18th September.
Established some 14 years ago, h.Art is a prestigious annual event across Herefordshire, with a huge variety of art on show with at least 16 different media, 150 individual artists and approximately 100 different venues across the whole county. With the vast majority offering free admission to visitors, h.Art promises a fun day out in one of England’s most beautiful counties as well as the chance to go on the famous h.Art Trail.
See an array of artwork at group exhibitions in the city and countryside, in fabulous locations such as castles, manor houses, historic barns, farms and churches and beautiful gardens. Personal encounters with some of the UK’s finest artists and makers in the intimacy of their homes and studios, make h.Art really special for art lovers. Discovering new work as well as being able to buy or commission exactly what they want combine to attract art lovers like bees to honey to h.Art. On top of that visitors also have the opportunity to attend special events, such as talks, demonstrations, workshops and entertainment within the wonderful venues.
For artists, craftmakers, galleries and venues including churches, manors and castles, h.Art offers the chance to raise their profiles in one of the best open studio events in the country. Our website promotes participating artists all year round, so keep up-to-date with your favourites.
Some of the members of h.Art choose to open up again with new exhibitions during the run up to Christmas, giving people the special opportunity to visit and buy handmade, personal Christmas gift for friends, family and loved ones. This is generally over two weekends at the beginning of December.
