2019 My Special Place Exhibition

We all have our special place. Somewhere for reflection, for memories, to savour beauty or to enjoy good company.

Celebrate your special place with an art work in our exhibition in Spring.


Following the success of “Portraits” last year, HAEG is anticipating plenty of interest.
This time, if you’d like, we welcome a brief, written explanation of why your place is so special to you. This will accompany your art when exhibited.

The online Entry Form is available here.

The Terms and Conditions document is available for download here.
