ART on the COMMON 2018

This year the event will take place on the weekend of 9th & 10th June, opening 10am – 5pm on Saturday and 11am – 5pm on Sunday. It will coincide with the Harpenden Summer Carnival which will take place on Saturday.

Set on a wonderful tree lined section of Harpenden Common, close to the town centre, the tented village will have 45 pitches featuring exceptional work by the most talented artists in the region. The event has been part of Harpenden Town’s Summer programme for over 35 years and has established itself as Hertfordshire’s premier outdoor art show.

A wide range of affordable works will be on show including paintings, ceramics, textiles, jewellery, fine art photography, wood and handmade greeting cards. This exciting event will give you the chance to meet the artists and purchase a unique piece of artwork or designer jewellery.

A percentage of all artists’ sales plus their pitch charges will be donated to Cancer Research UK.
