 h.Art  Sat 7 to Sun 15 September 

Take your time to feel uplifted and inspired by Herefordshire's creative people. 

Enrich your homes and lives with their wonderfully varied art and craftworks.

h.Art is a not to be missed early Autumn treat.

Hundreds of artists across the County and close borders.

9 days of joyful inspiration, unique finds, and the chance to buy direct from the creator. Meet them in their creative habitats, pop up shows in lots of unexpected places and galleries. Many artists only open their work spaces once a year, giving you a rare insight into their creative lives and their individual practice. You can chat, just browse, buy, or commission direct.

Artists and galleries update their pages throughout the year, so you can check out what’s new with them and follow your favourites until the end of the year.

 

How to explore - 

Click on ‘All Venues’ at the top of the page. You can choose to explore by location, artist, artform, venue or gallery.

Each venue page has a link to 'what three words' and google maps or you can download the h.Art County map here.

 

Download the printed h.Art 2024 guide - click on the word, or find it via the navigation bar at the top of this page.
