COME and view what Hertfordshire artists have to offer.

That is the message from a county-wide visual arts organisation who are putting on a free Hertfordshire Open Studios preview day this weekend.

Copper Beech Art Gallery in Priory Lane, Little Wymondley, will feature exhibitions by around eight Hertfordshire-based artists, as part of the Hertfordshire Visual Arts Forum event, which celebrates the county’s fine arts and crafts.

Visitors can also enter into a free competition and the chance win a canvas family portrait worth �500.

The preview day, which also includes homemade cup cakes, cheese, biscuits and mulled wine, takes place on Saturday, September 4, from 10am to 4pm.
